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.

Water Level and Temperature of the Grand Calumet River, Indiana-Illinois, 2017

The Grand Calumet River is located east of Chicago, Illinois and flows east to west across the Indiana-Illinois border to its confluence with the Little Calumet River. In 2017, a suite of water level, temperature, and bathymetric data were collected along the Grand Calumet River. Water level and water temperature were continuously monitored at five locations in the Grand Calumet River bet

Lampricide Residues in Sea Lamprey Larvae Carcasses recovered after 3-trifluoromethyl-4-nitrophenol (TFM) or TFM/Bayluscide Stream Treatments

Lampricide concentrations in larval sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) carcasses collected following two TFM and two TFM/Bayluscide treatments were determined to support risk assessments for non-target organisms that may consume lampricide-laden carcasses. Carcasses were removed from the treated streams either immediately after completion of the treatment or 2-days post mortem. The estimate...
