Predicted consequences of detecting Najas minor environmental DNA in Sebago Lake Maine, 2022

U.S. Geological Survey decision analysts and technical experts worked with managers and stakeholders to predict the consequences of alternative actions following environmental DNA detections of invasive Najas minor eDNA in Sebago Lake, Maine, USA. This dataset provides the consequence and model inputs for each of the alternative actions under different levels of uncertainty.

Upper Klamath Lake and Clear Lake sampling for suckers from 2015 through 2022

Data in this data set include effort expended to collect suckers for cohort tracking and metrics and observations for each sucker captured from 2015 through 2022. There are two levels of data. All Nets data contains 5102 records and the data file is 609 KB. Captures data contains 3764 records and the data file is 504 KB. The data files can be linked by setID which is a unique identifier for a uniq

Geochemical data for water, sediment, and biota in areas affected by historical mining, northwestern Sierra Nevada and Trinity Mountains, California

This dataset includes data for water, sediment, and biota samples collected at 250 locations in the northwestern Sierra Nevada and the Trinity Mountains during 1999–2012. The locations were chosen to assess potential effects from historical mining, with a focus primarily on mercury contamination associated with placer gold mines in the Sierra Nevada and the Trinity Mountains, and a hard-rock mercu

Model Archival Summary for Suspended-Sediment Concentration at U.S. Geological Survey Site 06887000, Big Blue River near Manhattan, Kansas, during July 2018 through August 2023

This model archival summary summarizes the suspended-sediment concentration (SSC; U.S. Geological Survey [USGS] parameter code 80154) model developed to compute 15-minute, hourly, or daily SSC from July 26, 2018, onward. This model is specific to USGS site 06887000, the Big Blue River near Manhattan, Kansas, during this study period and cannot be applied to data collected from other locations on t

Root and Shoot Lengths of Rice and Bermuda Grass Seedlings Inoculated with Endophytic Bacteria from Phragmites australis

These data include measurements of root and shoot lengths of Rice (Oryza sativa) and Bermuda grass (Cynodon dactylon) that were inoculated with nine endophytic bacterial isolates. The tabular data represent growth promotion and fungal infection susceptibility information. They also show the infection rate of F. oxysporum on Rice (Oryza sativa), Bermuda grass (Cynodon dactylon) and Annual Bluegrass

Geochemical data for post-fire surface water, streambed sediment, and soils from areas affected by the 2018 Camp Fire, Butte County, California

During November 2018, the Camp Fire burned more than 150,000 acres in Butte County, California. The fire was the deadliest and most destructive in California history, destroying more than 18,000 structures and causing at least 85 fatalities. The U.S. Geological Survey sampled surface water in areas affected by the Camp Fire, plus an unburned control site, during two post-fire sampling events, Janu

Compilation of total dissolved solids concentrations and specific conductance measurements in the Upper Colorado River Basin, 1894 – 2022

This data release contains total dissolved solids (TDS) concentrations and specific conductance (SC) measurements collected at surface-water monitoring locations and groundwater monitoring wells within the Upper Colorado River Basin (UCRB) between 1894 and 2022. Discrete TDS and SC results were obtained from the Water Quality Portal (WQP). Continuous SC monitoring results were obtained from the US

Measurements of Water Quality Constituents in Groundwater Within 1 Mile (1.61 km) of Orphaned Wells in the United States

This is a combined dataset from the USGS Orphaned Well Dataset (Grove and Merrill, 2022) and publicly available data from the USGS National Water Information System, NWIS, obtained via the Water Quality Portal using the USGS Python dataretrieval library. This dataset is composed of water quality measurements from groundwater sites located within 1 mile of the locations of unplugged orphaned wells

Data and scripts used in water-quality characteristics of the Red River of the North and tributaries in the Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan area, North Dakota 2019-2022

This dataset contains data in support of a study by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to describe water-quality characteristics of the Red River of the North and tributaries prior to construction of the Flood Risk Management Project in the Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan area. This dataset contains bacteria data for ten sites supplied by the North

Database of mineral deposits related to the Mesoproterozoic Midcontinent Rift System (MRS) in the northern United States and northern Ontario, Canada

The Midcontinent Rift System (MRS) of North America is one of the world’s largest continental rifts and has an age of 1.1 Ga (giga-annum). The MRS hosts a diverse suite of magmatic and hydrothermal mineral deposits in the Lake Superior region where rift rocks are exposed at or near the surface. As part of the construction of a database summarizing information on mineral deposits in the MRS, data f

Long-term monotonic trends in annual and monthly stream temperature metrics at multi-source monitoring locations in the United States

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Water Resources Mission Area (WMA) is working to address a need to understand where the Nation is experiencing water shortages or surpluses relative to the demand for water need by delivering routine assessments of water supply and demand and an understanding of the natural and human factors affecting the balance between supply and demand. A key part of the Integr

Metal concentrations in streambed sediment in the lower Klamath River basin, 2018-2022

The U.S. Geological Survey is monitoring metal concentrations in streambed sediment pre- and post-dam removal in the lower Klamath River basin. Concentrations of aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, cobalt, chromium, copper, iron, potassium, magnesium, manganese, nickel, lead, titanium, vanadium and zinc were sampled at 10 mainstem sites, four tributaries and two reservoirs.
