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.

Supplementary data in support of oceanographic and water quality times-series measurements made at Thompsons Beach and Stone Harbor, NJ from September 2018 to February 2023

In 2012, Hurricane Sandy struck the Northeastern US causing devastation among coastal ecosystems. Post-hurricane marsh restoration efforts have included sediment deposition, planting of vegetation, and restoring tidal hydrology. The work presented here is part of a larger project funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) to monitor the post-restoration ecological resilience of coa

Beach foreshore slope for the West Coast of the United States

This data release contains foreshore slopes for primarily open-ocean sandy beaches along the west coast of the United States (California, Oregon and Washington). The slopes were calculated while extracting shoreline position from lidar point cloud data collected between 2002 and 2011. The shoreline positions have been previously published, but the slopes have not. A reference baseline was defined

Data describing hypoxia vulnerability in the salmon watersheds of Southeast Alaska

This .zip file contains five products that will allow users to recreate the analyses and spatial data figures used in Sergeant et al. 2023, Hypoxia Vulnerability in the Salmon Watersheds of Southeast Alaska: 1) Hypoxia vulnerability calculations (.csv file) at water temperature monitoring sites, 2) Hypoxia vulnerability calculations (.csv file) for stream reaches near hatchery release sites, 3) Ha

Locations of Smith's Longspurs tagged with light-level geolocators in northern Alaska, 2013 and 2014

These data are locations derived from light-level geolocators placed on 4 male Smith Longspurs captured on the breeding grounds of northern Alaska in 2013. In addition, we downloaded data from eBird to record where this species was observed through citizen science. Finally, we collected head feathers from birds on the breeding ground of Alaska to determine their isotopic values of hydrogen and oxy

White-tailed deer from culling efforts in Minnesota

Dataset containing information for white-tailed deer samples from Minnesota. Samples were genotyped for 11 microsatellites markers and sequenced for a fragment of approx. 546 bp belonging to the mitochondrial control region. Marker OvirQ should not be used as it presents alleles inconsistent with reported pattern, with some alleles separated by only 1 base pair and inconsistent between runs. Coord

Winter tick counts and covariates in Massachusetts and New Hampshire from fall 2022

The dataset accompanies manuscript: "Monitoring off-host winter tick abundance on traditional moose hunting lands" . It is a single table that includes counts of winter tick (Dermacentor albipictus) obtained by a modified flagging technique developed by the Penobscot Nation. The table includes both detection and site covariates used for the data analyses presented in the paper. Data were collected

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Argos GPS Satellite Tracking Data for Lesser Yellowlegs (Tringa flavipes)

This data package contains location data collected by the Argos System (CLS America, Inc.) from satellite transmitters attached to 116 Lesser Yellowlegs captured at multiple sites across their breeding and nonbreeding range in North America, 2018-2021. The raw data were processed to accomplish two goals: 1) flag implausible location and 2) remove locations within Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (J

Chemistry data for assessment of the containment pond at Pinyon Plain Mine, 2022

These data are comprised of measurements of elements (e.g., uranium, cobalt, nickel, copper, zinc, cadmium, lead, etc.), major anions (chloride, nitrite+nitrate as nitrogen, sulfate, etc.), organic carbon, and general water quality characteristics in Pinyon Plain Mine containment pond water, invertebrate, vegetation and sediment samples, collected in calendar year 2022.

Method development for determination of trace amounts of silicon in hydrofluoric acid digests of biological samples and lung biopsy tissues by ICP-MS

A method was described for determination of trace levels of silicon by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) from hydrofluoric (HF) digests of biological samples. The volatility of silicon in HF digests was examined with synthetic solutions as well as soil and mine waste samples. A digestion scheme was optimized to achieve complete dissolution, avoid loss of volatile silicon specie

Histopathology of American Kestrels (Falco sparverius) Exposed to Two Brodifacoum Isomer Formulations with Differing Elimination Half-Lives

This dataset documents histopathological changes in liver, kidney, skeletal muscle and intestine of captive American kestrels (Falco sparverius) exposed to brodifacoum formulations with differing elimination half-lives in target rodents. The toxicity of two brodifacoum formulations with stereoisomers having markedly different elimination half-lives in rats (Formulation A containing the 2 least per

Roundtail Chub and Flannelmouth Sucker movement data within the Blacks Fork subbasin, Wyoming 2019-2021

The dataset includes Roundtail Chub and Flannelmouth Sucker detections at passive integrated transponder (PIT) tag antenna systems. We installed nine instream Biomark PIT-tag antenna systems (five 24-meter and four 9-meter antennas) in a pass-over orientation throughout the Blacks Fork subbasin. In addition to the fixed antennas, we used a Biomark inflatable antenna and two Biomark submersible PIT

Post-wildfire rain gage data for Fourmile Canyon, Colorado and Rendija Canyon, New Mexico

Rain-gages are critical instrumentation for documenting the rainfall forcing of post-wildfire hydrologic, erosional, and water-quality response. This USGS Data Release presents tipping-bucket rain gage data following two wildfires: the 2000 Cerro Grande Fire near Los Alamos, New Mexico and the 2010 Fourmile Canyon Fire near Boulder, Colorado. The data presented in this USGS Data Release are used f
