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.

Rare earth element concentrations for oil shales and isolated kerogens from around the world

This Data Release contains lanthanide (i.e., rare earth element, REE), yttrium (Y), and scandium (Sc) concentrations for oil shales and kerogens isolated from those presented in the associated journal article "Role of Organic Matter and Thermal Maturation in Rare Earth Element Partitioning in the Middle Devonian Sequence of the Appalachian Basin". This dataset provides REE content for a diverse ra

Minnesota Point beach topography and near-shore bathymetry surveys of Lake Superior, Duluth, MN, August - November 2022

Topobathy was surveyed during the fall of 2022 for two locations along Minnesota Point, where past beach nourishment (dredge materials) were placed. These topobathymetric surveys of Minnesota Point and Lake Superior are repeat surveys that will be used evaluate movement of placed material and overall change of near-shore bathymetry. The data was acquired using a lidar sensor, and single-beam and m

Data from water column and sediment incubations from streams of Duck Creek and Fox River watersheds in Wisconsin, as well as the Fox rivermouth, the Saginaw rivermouth (Lake Huron, MI) and the Maumee rivermouth (Lake Erie, OH)

Nutrient reduction on the landscape scale often focuses on actions that reduce the movement of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) from agricultural lands into streams and rivers. However, processing of N and P in streams and rivers can be substantial and increasing these in-stream processing rates could result in reductions or transformations of nutrients to less labile or less mobile forms. We hypot

Lidar-derived Beach Volumes and Shoreline Change for New Jersey and New York

This data release defines beach volumes and shoreline change for each 10-meter-wide profile along the New Jersey and New York coastline. The profiles are derived from light detection and ranging (lidar)-digital elevation models (DEMs). These data support the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF)-funded project entitled “Monitoring Hurricane Sandy Beach and Marsh Resilience in New York and N

Salinas and Carmel Rivers Basin Study (SCRBS): Future Climate

This digital dataset contains the baseline and future climate data used as the basis for analysis of current and future water supplies and demands in the Salinas and Carmel Rivers Basin Study (SCRBS). SCRBS uses a suite of integrated hydrologic models to explore impacts of future climate and socioeconomic scenarios on water supplies and demands in the basins. SCRBS considers one baseline climate s

Testing Treatments Against Parasitic Scuticociliate (Philaster apodigitiformis) that Causes Mass Mortality Among Sea Urchins (Diadema antillarum) - Results

The information in this data release are those referenced in the journal article by Evans and others (2024) entitled “Evaluation of in vitro treatments against the causative agent of Diadema antillarum scuticociliatosis (DaSc).” They contain the results observed and collected during an experiment that tested the efficacy of nine compounds (2’4’ dihydroxychalcone, bithionol sulfoxide, carnidazole,

Calibration data and model archive summaries for suspended-sediment, total nitrogen, and total phosphorus concentration surrogate models in York County, Pennsylvania, 2019-2023

Total Nitrogen models are still in development and are not yet available. Anticipated availability is early April 2024. Information on this page will be edited as needed.   The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the York County Planning Commission and York County Conservation District, has collected discrete stream samples for analysis of suspended-sediment, total nitrogen, and tot

Airborne electromagnetic, magnetic, and radiometric survey of the Mississippi Alluvial Plain, Mississippi Embayment, and Gulf Coastal Plain, September 2021 - January 2022

Airborne electromagnetic (AEM), magnetic, and radiometric data were acquired September 2021 to January 2022 along 27,204 line-kilometers (line-km) over the Mississippi Alluvial Plain (MAP), Mississippi Embayment, and Gulf Coastal Plain. Data were acquired by Xcalibur Multiphysics (Canada), Ltd. with three different airborne sensors: the 30Hz TEMPEST time-domain AEM instrument that is used to map s

Brodifacoum isomer formulation study

Body weight and weight change during course of study, estimates of food and brodifacoum consumption, observations of test birds during feeding trial and at necropsy, hematocrit, and prothrombin time

Attribution of stream habitat assessment data to NHDPlus V2 and NHDPlus HR catchments within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed

This data release links habitat assessment sites to both the NHDPlus Version 2 and NHDPlus High Resolution Region 02 networks using the hydrolink methodology. Linked habitat sites are those compiled by the Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin (ICPRB) during creation of the Chesapeake Bay Basin-wide Index of Biotic Integrity (Chessie BIBI) for benthic macroinvertebrates (https://datahub

Parasite sample voucher numbers and 28S rRNA alignment file for parasites collected from California Giant Salamander (Dicamptodon ensatus) from Webb Creek, in the Bear Creek Redwoods Preserve in Santa Clara County, California, USA

Multi sequence file (.msf) file used to construct a 28S rRNA phylogenetic tree of species of Euryhelmis and other heterophyid trematodes. Sequences were generated from metacercariae samples at U.S. Geological Survey National Wildlife Health Center (NWHC) and compared for base pair similarities with publicly available sequences from GenBank using BLAST (https://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Blast.cgi). Se

Seasonal Blue Water Evapotranspiration 1986 – 2020 for the Croplands in the High Plains Aquifer Region

Estimation of irrigation water use provides essential information for the management and conservation of agricultural water resources. The blue water evapotranspiration (BWET) raster dataset at 30-meter resolution is created to estimate agricultural irrigation water consumption. The dataset contains seasonal total (1 May to 30 September) BWET time series (1986 – 2020) for the croplands across the
