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.

Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) version 4.3 Transects with Long-Term Linear Regression Rate Calculations for the Exposed West Beaufort Sea coast of Alaska between the Colville River and Point Barrow

This dataset consists of long-term (~65 years) shoreline change rates for the north coast of Alaska between the Colville River and Point Barrow. Rate calculations were computed within a GIS using the Digital Shoreline Analysis System (DSAS) version 4.3, an ArcGIS extension developed by the U.S. Geological Survey. Long-term rates of shoreline change were calculated using a linear regre

Tracklines of a multibeam survey of the sea floor of the Atlantic Beach artificial reef (polyline shapefile, geographic, WGS 84)

The Atlantic Beach artificial reef, located on the sea floor 3 nautical miles south of Atlantic Beach, New York in about 20 meters water depth, was built to create habitat for marine life. The reef was originally created by placing heavy materials such as tires, automobile bodies and other vehicles, barges, and rock from a dredging project on the sea floor. In 2000, the U.S. Geologi

CoSMoS (Coastal Storm Modeling System) Southern California v3.0 Phase 2 ocean-currents projections: 1-year storm in Ventura County

Model-derived ocean current velocities (in meters per second) for the given storm condition and sea-level rise (SLR) scenario.
The Coastal Storm Modeling System (CoSMoS) makes detailed predictions (meter-scale) over large geographic scales (100s of kilometers) of storm-induced coastal flooding and erosion for both current and future sea-level rise (SLR) scenarios. CoSMoS

Groundwater withdrawals from the Floridan aquifer system by county, 1995

Values represent groundwater withdrawals from the Floridan aquifer system for 1995 in the southeastern United States. Withdrawals were computed by multiplying the gross groundwater withdrawals for each county by a coefficient representing the proportion of total groundwater withdrawals coming from each aquifer. Coefficients for each county and water-use category were back-calculated from data...

Barometric Pressure Dataset at Santa Cruz River at Tubac, Arizona, Geographic NAD83 (Water Years 2015–2017)

This dataset contains barometric pressure collected at the Santa Cruz River at Tubac, Arizona (SC14, 09481740). The data were recorded using a Solinst 3001 Barologger for the period of February 12, 2015 to December 31, 2016. The data were logged continuously at a 15-minute interval and manually downloaded. Non-vented pressure transducers do not correct for atmospheric pressure, ther

Uncertainty table for lidar-derived shorelines used when calculating rates in the Digital Shoreline Analysis System software for northeastern Florida (FLne)

Sandy ocean beaches are a popular recreational destination, often surrounded by communities containing valuable real estate. Development is on the rise despite the fact that coastal infrastructure is subjected to flooding and erosion. As a result, there is an increased demand for accurate information regarding past and present shoreline changes. To meet these national needs, the Coastal

Life history attributes data for Arizona Grasshopper Sparrow (Ammodramus savannarum ammolegus) in Arizona 2013

Ammodramus savannarum ammolegus (commonly referred to as the Arizona Grasshopper Sparrow) occurs in the desert and plains grasslands of southeastern Arizona, southwestern New Mexico, and northern Sonora, Mexico. Although a subspecies of conservation concern, this data was produced as part of the first intensive study of its life history and breeding ecology, providing baseline data

A Wideband data from the manuscript: Magnetoresistive Sensor for Monitoring Dynamic Fault Slip in Laboratory Fault Friction Experiments

These data are the basis of the figures in the manuscript "A Wideband magnetoresistive sensor for monitoring dynamic fault slip in laboratory fault friction experiments". That report was the result of an investigation of a non-contact, wideband method of sensing dynamic fault slip in laboratory geophysical experiments which employs an inexpensive magnetoresistive sensor, a small neodymium
