Science Datasets

The data collected and the techniques used by USGS scientists should conform to or reference national and international standards and protocols if they exist and when they are relevant and appropriate. For datasets of a given type, and if national or international metadata standards exist, the data are indexed with metadata that facilitates access and integration.

5-meter swath bathymetric grid collected by the U.S. Geological Survey offshore of Fire Island, NY in 2011 (UTM Zone 18N, WGS 84, Esri Binary Grid)

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) mapped approximately 336 square kilometers of the lower shoreface and inner-continental shelf offshore of Fire Island, New York in 2011 using interferometric sonar and high-resolution chirp seismic-reflection systems. These spatial data support research on the Quaternary evolution of the Fire Island coastal system and provide baseline information for rese...

Trackline navigation for Multi-channel streamer seismic-reflection profiles collected by the U.S. Geological Survey along the Delmarva Peninsula, MD and VA, 2014

The Delmarva Peninsula is a 220-kilometer-long headland, spit, and barrier island complex that was significantly affected by Hurricane Sandy. A U.S. Geological Survey cruise was conducted in the summer of 2014 to map the inner continental shelf of the Delmarva Peninsula using geophysical and sampling techniques to define the geologic framework that governs coastal system evolution at storm-ev...

Shorelines Extracted from 1984-2015 Landsat Imagery: Ship Island, Mississippi (Polygon: Individual Dates)

Shorelines Extracted from 1984-2015 Landsat Imagery: Ship Island, Mississippi (Polygon: Individual Dates) is a dataset consisting of 280 polygon shapefiles representing shorelines generated from satellite imagery that was collected from 1984 to 2015. The sample frequency of satellite imagery is much higher, and the coverage much greater, than most routine high-resolution topograph

Sagebrush Types, Soil Regime Classes, and Fire Frequencies in Greater Sage-grouse Population Areas of the Snake River Plain (1984-2013)

This three-band, 30-m resolution raster contains sagebrush vegetation types, soil temperature/moisture regime classes, and large fire frequencies across greater sage-grouse population areas within the Snake River Plain sage-grouse management zone. Sagebrush vegetation types were defined by grouping together similar vegetation types from the LANDFIRE biophysical settings layer. Soil moistu
