NASA GIFT Iceland Highlands: 2019 and 2021 Askja Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and Observations

This data collection includes ground-penetrating radar (GPR) data and related observations collected from the NASA Goddard Instrument Field Team (GIFT) Expedition to the Icelandic Highlands in July-August 2019 and August 2021. This dataset includes observations at the Askja Volcano and caldera and Vikrahraun lava flow. GPR data were collected using Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc (GSSI) shielded b

Evaluating the impact of differences in remnant and reconstruction mycorrhizas on performance of conservative prairie plant species

This data record contains arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) operational taxonomic unit (OTU) occurrences in native prairie plant roots collected from remnant prairies and reconstruction of tallgrass prairies in Minnesota and Iowa, from April-December of 2022. The research aims to improve prairie reconstruction methods using AMF to improve prairie plant performance, species diversity, and resistan

Eastern migratory monarch butterfly population estimates and associated early warning signals (2006-2022)

The long decline of the eastern migratory population of monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus) appears to have abated in recent years and the population now persists at a much-reduced abundance. Stochastic variation in abundance typical of monarch butterflies, and other insects, places this population at heightened risk of quasi-extinction, a level of abundance below which recovery of the migrator

Diatom Data from Coastal Environments on Montague Island, Alaska

This dataset consists of fossil diatom counts from sediment cores collected in coastal environments on Montague Island, Alaska, and analyzed at Virginia Tech University.

Atlantic and Gulf Coastal Plains Sediment Thickness (v220517)

This dataset of the elevation of basement and thickness of sediment above the syn- and post-rift unconformity (sediments above being generally Late Cretaceous and younger) was constructed for application to site response models in earthquake hazard analyses. Sediment thickness in meters is provided in zipped csv format on a 0.01-degree grid, and sediment thickness and basement elevation in meters

Temperature and Discharge Data of Selected Springs at Fort Irwin National Training Center, San Bernardino County, California

The characteristics, discharge, and water quality of springs and seeps, at the Fort Irwin National Training Center (NTC) were evaluated during 2015 and 2016. Geophysical, hydrological, and water-quality data were used to help characterize and document a baseline of current (2016) hydrologic conditions and water quality of springs and seeps located on the NTC. Hydrologic methods used in this study

Vesicularity, grain size, and grain shape of basaltic pyroclasts from Kīlauea and Mauna Loa volcanoes, Island of Hawaiʻi

This dataset includes sample information, vesicularity by pycnometer, grain size and shape data by CAMSIZER, and measurements of crushed and thin section mounted grains by microscope. All studied samples were from scoria and air-fall-tephra deposits (most formed in Hawaiian lava fountains) collected around the summits of Mauna Loa and Kīlauea volcanoes, Island of Hawaiʻi. These data were used to d

Gravity Cores and Box Cores from Suisun Bay, San Pablo Bay, and San Francisco Bay, California

This data release contains information on 94 gravity cores and 3 box cores that were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in the areas of Suisun, San Pablo, and San Francisco Bay, California in 1990 and 2000. PDF files describe the cores that were split for analysis, and another pdf file contains a core-log legend. In addition, a shapefile provides sample collection data.

Geospatial datasets of seabed topography, sediment mobility, and the distribution of geologic substrates in quadrangle 5 of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary region offshore of Boston, Massachusetts

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the National Marine Sanctuary Program of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), has conducted seabed mapping and related research in the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary (SBNMS) region since 1993. The interpretive datasets and source information presented here are for quadrangle 5, which is one of 18 similarly siz

Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve Sea Otter Forage Data, 1993-2019

These data describe observations of sea otter foraging behavior in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. Data consist of dive and surface times, success in prey retrieval, prey item, prey quantity, and size. Additionally, location of observations, and age class, sex, and pup status of the focal sea otter were also recorded.

Plant composition, shrub biomass, and soil biogeochemistry from an experimental drought treatment on the Colorado Plateau

These data were compiled for a study that investigated the effects of drought seasonality and plant community composition in a dryland ecosystem. In 2015 U.S. Geological Survey ecologists recorded vegetation and soil moisture data in 36 experimental plots which manipulated precipitation in two plant community types. The experiment consisted of three precipitation treatments: control (ambient preci

Digital Data from a Previously Published Tectonic Map of the Colorado Plateau

This digital dataset release of the Tectonic Map of the Colorado Plateau is a courtesy publication of the previously published legacy report by V.C. Kelley in 1955. The original publication, "Tectonic Map of the Colorado Plateau Showing Uranium Deposits" contains elevation contours from the top of the Chinle formation in 1000 ft intervals and geologic structural formations such as monoclinal, sync
