Data Documenting the U.S. Geological Survey Peak-Flow File Data Verification Project, 2008-16

These data provide a public summary of the changes made to the U.S. Geological Survey peak-flow file since formal Nation-wide checking began in 2008. Coverage includes peak-flow sites in the United States and territories.

Real time precipitation data for Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina (NWISWeb)

Data from rain gages that provide real-time data are relayed to the USGS and are transmitted from each station at intervals of 1 to 8 hours. Real-time data available on these web pages are provisional data that have not been reviewed or edited.

Benthos and Plankton data for Waukegan Harbor Area of Concern, Illinois, and Burns Harbor-Port of Indiana Non-Area of Concern, Indiana, in 2015

During two seasonal sampling events in spring (June) and fall (August) of 2015, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, collected benthos (benthic invertebrates) and plankton (zooplankton and phytoplankton) at three sites each in the Waukegan Harbor Area of Concern (AOC) in Illinois and in Burns Harb

Hydrogeologic Characteristics and Selected Multiannual Responses in the Alluvium of the Lower Arkansas River Valley, Southeastern Colorado, 2002, 2008, and 2015

Data release containing geospatial data and metadata for select hydrogeologic characteristics of the alluvium in the Lower Arkansas River Valley, Southeast Colorado, 2002, 2008, and 2015. This data release accompanies U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Map 3378 ( Geospatial datasets and metadata include: - Rasters showing estimated thickness of the

Water samples in support of oceanographic and water-quality measurements in Chincoteague Bay, Maryland and Virginia, 2014-15, U.S. Geological Survey Field Activity 2014-048-FA

U.S. Geological Survey scientist and technical support staff measured oceanographic, water quality, seabed elevation change, and meteorological parameters in Chincoteague Bay, Maryland and Virginia, during the period of August 13, 2014 to July 14, 2015 as part of the Estuarine Physical Response (EPR) to Storms project (GS2-2D) supported by the Department of the Interior Hurricane Sandy Recovery pr

Silver eel responses to live and dead silver eel odors at the U.S. Geological Survey Wellsboro Lab in 2015

This is a tabular data set that contains morphological and experimental data for a study testing if silver stage American eel respond to each other's odor. Inside a laboratory flume, downstream-swimming eels were exposed to both live (putative attractant) and dead (putative repellent) conspecific washings to determine whether their trajectory of downstream movement, level of activity, or time spen

California Red-Legged Frogs in Point Reyes Coastal Dune Drainages (2015)

California Red-legged Frogs (Rana draytonii) are typically regarded as inhabitants of permanent ponds, marshes, and slow-moving streams, but their ecology in other habitats, including coastal dunes, remains obscure. To avoid and minimize potential negative effects of dune restoration activities, we studied the spatial ecology, habitat selection, and survival of California Red-legged Frogs in coast

Bioelectrical impedance analysis for an endangered desert fish—Data

These data were used to examine the effectiveness of a non-lethal tool (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, "BIA") to estimate the physiological condition of endangered and threatened fishes in the Colorado River Basin. We conducted laboratory trials using hatchery-raised Humpback Chub and Bonytail and wild-captured Roundtail Chub, where fish were subjected to different feeding trials to elucidate a

Public-Supply Water Use in the Cumberland River Watershed in 2010 and Projections of Public-Supply Water Use to 2040

Adequate water resources are vital for municipal needs in the Cumberland River watershed. As a result of continuing population growth, moderate to extreme droughts and floods, demands for competing water resources, and aging infrastructure, the evaluation of ongoing water-resources issues has become increasingly important to Federal, State, and local water-resources managers. In order to assist lo

Water Use in Tennessee, 2010

The water resources in Tennessee are likely to be stressed in the future by factors such as population increase, urban and suburban development, climate change, and other competing demands. Water-resource managers and policy makers will need accurate water-use data for regional water-supply planning including infrastructure investment, conservation, and cost-recovery strategies. Quantifying public

Early Estimates of Herbaceous Annual Cover in the Sagebrush Ecosystem

Cheatgrass dramatically changes shrub steppe ecosystems in the West, mainly by changing the fire regime. The creation of maps of current-season cheatgrass location and density has been difficult to estimate rapidly. USGS researchers have developed methods for producing a near-real-time cheatgrass percent cover dataset. They have completed a dataset that depicts cheatgrass across a large portion of
