Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Water-Quality and Sonar Measurements in Delaware River near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 2019

These data sets were created in support of the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) Next Generation Water Observing System (NGWOS) for the Delaware River Basin pilot study (Eberts, Wagner, and Woodside, 2019). The NGWOS utilizes real-time data, improved computational capabilities, and new technologies such as the rapid deployment of unmanned aerial vehicle's (UAV) and aut

2018 Longitudinal Water Temperature Profiles of the Yakima River, Washington

Longitudinal profiles of near-streambed water temperature were measured at ambient river velocity using the method of Vacarro and Maloy (2006) within nine reaches of the Yakima River between Sunnyside Diversion Dam near Parker, WA and the confluence of the Yakima River with the Columbia River near Richland, WA. In eight reaches, near-streambed water temperature was measured along three

Butterfly community abundance and distribution along a gradient of woody vegetation density at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Hoosier Prairie Nature Preserve, and Tefft Savanna Nature Preserve, Indiana 1998-1999.

The dataset consists of abundance information of butterfly species (61 species) collected at 25 sites in northwest Indiana in 1998 and 1999. Each site was surveyed 21 times. Auxiliary data on environmental conditions were collected to allow us to relate habitat differences among sites to differences in abundance and composition of the butterfly community.

Data for Fluoride Occurrence in United States Groundwater

Data from 38,105 wells were used to characterize fluoride occurrence in untreated United States groundwater. The data were retrieved from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Water Information System (NWIS). Groundwater samples were collected from 1988 to 2017 in the conterminous United States. Data for groundwater included in this dataset are pH, water temperature, and concen
