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.

Arena trial breach attempts and morphometric data of brown treesnakes and rats, Guam, 2019-2020

There are two datasets included in this entry. The "morph" dataset contains 6 columns of data on brown treesnakes and rats collected prior to and during arena trials for trialing fencing material for multispecies barrier construction. The "trials" dataset includes 25 columns of brown treesnake and rat data collected prior to, during, and after arena trials. There are four data files a

Sea-floor sediment samples, seabed imagery, and CTD instrument data collected on Stellwagen Bank in July and August, 2019, U.S. Geological Survey Field Activity 2019-008-FA

This cruise was conducted in collaboration with the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, and the data collected will aid research on the ecology of fish and invertebrate species that inhabit the region.

Station information, Seabed and Sample Imagery, and CTD Instrument Data Collected on Stellwagen Bank in September, 2016, U.S. Geological Survey Field Activity 2016-038-FA, U.S. Geological Survey Field Activity 2016-038-FA

This field activity is part of the effort to map geologic substrates of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary region off Boston, Massachusetts. The overall goal is to develop high-resolution (1:25,000) interpretive maps, based on multibeam sonar data and seabed sampling, showing surficial geology and seabed sediment dynamics.

Genetic Data from Cooper's Hawks, North America

This data set describes nuclear microsatellite genotypes derived from six autosomal loci (AgCA222, Age7.1JT, BV13, BV20, NVH206, NVH195-2) in Cooper's Hawks. Samples originated from blood samples collected from live trapped birds.

Alakai Plateau, Kauai, and Volcano Village,Hawaii biopesticides and traps for the control of Culex quinquefasciatus, 2017-2018

This USGS data release consists of seven data sets and accompanying metadata for studies on the efficacy of adult mosquito traps and lures for monitoring populations of the invasive mosquito Culex quinquefasciatus and the efficacy of the biopesticide VectoMax FG for control of larval Culex quinquefasciatus in Hawaiian forest bird habitat. Culex quinquefasciatus is the vector of the avian...

Site Locations for Kawaikoi Stream and Volcano Village

Mosquito-borne avian malaria is a key limiting factor on Hawaiian forest bird populations. Preservation of endemic forest birds and restoration of Hawaiian forest bird communities will rely on mosquito control. While landscape level control is being developed managers need short term and reliable tools for monitoring and controlling mosquito populations to protect remaining breeding bird...

Kauai Adult Mosquito Monitoring

As part of a larger study looking at the efficacy of the biopesticide VectoMax FG for control of larval Culex quinquefasciatus, USGS and DOFAW personnel monitored adult mosquitoes (Culex quinquefasciatus and Aedes japonicus) along the Kawaikoi Stream during late summer, September through November 2016 and 2017. Ten trap sites were selected across a 1-kilometer grid centered on the interse

Trap Efficacy Captures

As part of a larger study on the efficacy of the biopesticide VectoMax FG for control of larval Culex quinquefasciatus and adult mosquito traps for monitoring, USGS personnel evaluated host-seeking trap configurations and attractants as well as infusions for gravid trap for capturing adult mosquitoes (Culex quinquefasciatus and Aedes japonicus) in native forest habitat from August to Novemb...

USGS VectoMax EfficacyTrials Larval Counts, Kawaikoi Stream, Alakai Wilderness Area 2016-2017

As part of a larger study looking at the ecology and potential control of larval Culex quinquefasciatus, USGS and Hawaii DOFAW personnel monitored larval mosquitoes (Culex quinquefasciatus) and the non-target species Microvelia vagans and Megalagrion larvae in perched stream pools, seeps and ground pools along the Kawaikoi Stream during late summer, September through November 2016 and 2

Water temperature models, data and code for the Colorado, Green, San Juan, Yampa, and White rivers in the Colorado River basin

These data were compiled for a manuscript in which 1) we develop a water temperature model for the major river segments and tributaries of the Colorado River basin, including the Colorado, Green, Yampa, White, and San Juan rivers; 2) we link modeled water temperature to fish population data to predict the probability native and nonnative species will be common in the future in a w

Kawaikoi Stream Dip Survey

As part of a larger study looking at the ecology and potential control of larval Culex quinquefasciatus, USGS and Hawaii DOFAW personnel surveyed a kilometer long reach of the Kawaikoi Stream for larval mosquitoes (Culex quinquefasciatus), potential larval mosquito habitat and non-target aquatic macroinvertebrates during late summer, September through November 2016 and 2017.
