EAARL Coastal Topography-Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, Pre- and Post-Hurricane Isabel, 2003

These XYZ datasets provide lidar-derived bare-earth topography for Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. Elevation measurements were acquired pre-Hurricane Isabel on September 16 and post-Hurricane Isabel on September 21, 2003 by the first-generation Experimental Advanced Airborne Research Lidar (EAARL), in cooperation with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Supporting data for A Glacier Runoff Extension to the Precipitation Runoff Modeling System

This product is an archive of the modeling artifacts used to produce a journal paper (Van Beusekom and Viger, 2016). The abstract for that paper follows. A module to simulate glacier runoff, PRMSglacier, was added to PRMS (Precipitation Runoff Modeling System), a distributed-parameter, physical-process hydrological simulation code. The extension does not require extensive on-glacier measurements o

Stream water-quality summary statistics and outliers, streamwater load models and estimates, and peak flow modeling parameters for 13 watersheds in Gwinnett County, Georgia

Data include: (1) water-quality constituent outliers that were removed from the calibration of regression models used to estimate streamwater solute loads, (2) parameters used to model peak streamflow recurrence intervals, (3) models used to estimate streamwater constituent loads, (4) statistical summaries of water-quality observations, and (5) estimated annual streamwater constituent loads.

Continuous and optimized 3-arcsecond elevation model for United States east and west coasts

Investigations of coastal change and coastal resources often require continuous elevation profiles from the seafloor to coastal terrestrial landscapes. Differences in elevation data collection in the terrestrial and marine environments result in separate elevation products that may not share a vertical datum. This data release contains the compilation of multiple elevation products into a continuo

Comparing Uncorrected and Corrected Bottom-hole Temperatures Using Published Correction Methods For the Onshore U.S. Gulf of Mexico

Wireline logging temperature readings are known to be imprecise and need to be corrected to more accurately show what the formation temperature is. One issue with correcting logging temperatures is what correction factor to use. Because there are so many correction factors and they are based on different types of data and locations choosing a correction factor for a particular study area can be ch

Data and source code from "Estimating inbreeding rates in natural populations: addressing the problem of incomplete pedigrees"

We used Monte Carlo simulations to compare properties of the two estimators and determine their utility for empirical analyses. Simulations were performed using idealized populations that were tracked over 15 generations. Separate simulations were performed using generation sizes of 100 individuals (50 male and 50 females) or 20 individuals (10 males and 10 females). In each generation, parents fo

Historic Simulation of Net Ecosystem Carbon Balance for the Great Dismal Swamp

Estimating ecosystem carbon (C) balance relative to natural disturbances and land management strengthens our understanding of the benefits and tradeoffs of carbon sequestration. We conducted a historic model simulation of net ecosystem C balance in the Great Dismal Swamp, VA. for the 30-year time period of 1985-2015. The historic simulation of annual carbon flux was calculated with the Land Use an

Zinc concentrations and isotopic signatures of an aquatic insect (mayfly, Baetis tricaudatus)

Insect metamorphosis often results in substantial chemical changes that can fractionate isotopes and alter contaminant concentrations. We exposed larval mayflies (Baetis tricaudatus) to an aqueous zinc gradient (3-340 g Zn/l) and measured the change in zinc tissue concentrations at different stages of metamorphosis. We also measured changes in stable isotopes (δ15N and δ13C) in unexposed B. tricau

Water-quality and streamflow datasets used in the Weighted Regressions on Time, Discharge, and Season (WRTDS) models to determine trends in the Nations rivers and streams, 1972-2012

In 1991, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) began a study of more than 50 major river basins across the Nation as part of the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) project of the National Water-Quality Program. One of the major goals of the NAWQA project is to determine how water-quality conditions change over time. To support that goal, long-term consistent and comparable monitoring has been c

Carpinteria Salt Marsh Habitat Polygons

We identified five common habitat types in Carpinteria Salt Marsh: channels, pans (flats), marsh, salt flat and upland. We then drew polygons around each habitat type identified from a registered and orthorectified aerial photograph and created a GIS shapefile. Polygons were ground-truthed in the field. From these habitat polygons, one can use GIS applications to estimate the area of each habitat

Digital Database and Maps of Quaternary Deposits in East and Central Siberia

This digital database is the product of collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey, the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research Potsdam, Foothill College GeoSpatial Technology Certificate Program, and the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska. The primary goal for creating this digital database is to enhance current estimates of organic carbon stored in deep permaf

Exposure potential of salt marsh units in Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge to environmental health stressors

Natural and anthropogenic contaminants, pathogens, and viruses are found in soils and sediments throughout the United States. Enhanced dispersion and concentration of these environmental health stressors in coastal regions can result from sea level rise and storm-derived disturbances. The combination of existing environmental health stressors and those mobilized by natural or anthropogenic disaste
