Data Releases

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.

Water-Quality Data and Geophysical Logs for Determination of Saline Groundwater in Selected Aquifers in Texas, 2021

The availability of groundwater-quality data along with geophysical information for relatively deep wells (wells generally more than 300 feet deep) containing saline water (dissolved-solids concentrations greater than 2,000 milligrams per liter)) is limited throughout the state of Texas. Water-quality samples are important for calibrating estimates of groundwater salinity derived from geophysical

Data for aerial dispersal of Lygodium microphyllum spores within Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, 2003 - 2004

Old World Climbing Fern (Lygodium microphyllum (Cav.) R. Br.) is an invasive plant species threatening South Florida ecosystems. In 1989 L. microphyllum was observed in the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. L. microphyllum has attributes that allow it to thrive in South Florida. It produces a huge number of small spores that are easily suspended by wind and dispersed, have a

Algorithms for model parameter estimation and state estimation applied to a state-space model for one-dimensional vertical infiltration incorporating snowmelt rate as a system input

The algorithms and input data included in this data release are used to interpret time-series data (water-table altitude, precipitation, snowmelt, and potential evapotranspiration) over an observation period to estimate model parameters of a State-Space Model (SSM) of vertical infiltration to the groundwater table. The SSM model is coupled with a Kalman Filter (KF) to estimate system states (w

Field, remote sensing, and modeling data used for Collins et al., Rockfall Kinematics from Massive Rock Cliffs: Outlier Boulders and Flyrock Resulting from the 2020 Whitney Portal, California Rockfalls

This data release includes information used to support the manuscript "Rockfall kinematics from massive rock cliffs: outlier boulders and flyrock from Whitney Portal, California rockfalls". The included datasets and supplement include data that was collected and processed to investigate the kinematics of boulder trajectories and impacts to both other boulders and to existing trees on the

Giant Gartersnake (Thamnophis gigas) Prey Preference (2014)

This is an examination of the diet of a threatened snake, giant gartersnake (Thamnophis gigas). Prey preference, prey selection and prey availability (in the laboratory and the field) were measured to understand prey dynamics for better conservation of this snake. In the laboratory, olfactory trials were performed on neonate snakes and tongue-flicks, lounges and attacks were counted and calculated

Supplemental Data: Hydrologic Budget of the Harney Basin Groundwater System, Southeastern Oregon, 1982-2016

This USGS data release presents data used to estimate and summarize hydrologic budget components of the Harney Basin groundwater system, Southeastern Oregon, 1982-2016. The supplemental data consist of five child items. The child items are: (1) Harney Basin Boundaries: Hydrographic Area, Groundwater Evapotranspiration Area, Regions, Lowlands, Uplands, and Selected Watersheds in Harney Basin, Sout

Data release for cosmogenic beryllium-10 exposure ages of boulders deposited on moraines in the Stura Valley (southewestern Alps)

This report summarizes the cosmogenic beryllium-10 (10Be) geochronologic results from boulders deposited on moraines in the Stura Valley of the Maritime Alps, the southwestern most extent of the European Alpine mountain chain, northwestern Italy. Within this report are detailed the methodologies used to collect samples of whole rock, determine the concentrations of cosmogenic 10Be in purified quar

Stream temperature predictions for the Willamette River Basin, northwestern Oregon estimated from regression equations (1954 - 2018)

This data release contains estimated stream temperature metrics at three locations in the Willamette River Basin, northwestern Oregon for various periods between 1954 and 2018. These locations were the Willamette River at Albany, the Willamette River at Harrisburg, and the Willamette River at Keizer. A regression program (written in the R programming language) was used to relate the values for two

Airborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey data, southeastern San Joaquin Valley near Cawelo, California, 2016

Airborne electromagnetic (AEM) and magnetic survey data were collected during October 2016 over a total distance of 262 line kilometers in the southeastern San Joaquin Valley near Cawelo, California. These data were collected in support of groundwater salinity mapping and hydrogeologic framework development as part of the U.S. Geological Survey California Oil, Gas, and Groundwater program and the

Supporting data for and predictions from streamflow permanence modeling in Mt. Rainier National Park and surrounding area, Washington, 2018-2020

This data release contains spatially gridded geospatial data (rasters), R scripts, and supporting files to run Random Forest models to predict the probability of late summer surface flow in Mt. Rainier and surrounding area in Washington State for 2018?20. Gridded geospatial data that describes the physical conditions of Mt. Rainier National Park and surrounding area are used to refine the existing

Fish Egg Retention on Egg Mats in Experimental Flumes and Targeted Field Gear Egg Collection in the Detroit River, 2015-2016

Egg mat retention trials were conducted with walleye (Stizostedion vitreum) and lake whitefish (Coregonus clupeaformis) eggs in an experimental flume tank, seeded directly on egg mats (test retention efficiency) and hand dispersed in flowing flume water to simulate spawning over egg mats (test capture efficiency) with and without alternate substrate. In the field study, we measured number of eggs

Station Information, Seabed and Sample Imagery, and CTD Instrument Data Collected on Stellwagen Bank from May 2016 to April 2019

These data are a 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. The work was conducted in collaboration with the Stellwagen Bank Natio
