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.

Cold-water coral microbiomes (Paramuricea placomus) from Baltimore Canyon: raw and processed data

The files in this data release are the raw and processed DNA sequence files referenced in the submitted journal article by Kellogg et. al. titled "Bacterial Community Diversity of the Deep-Sea Octocoral Paramuricea placomus." They represent a 16S rRNA gene amplicon survey of the coral's microbiome completed using Roche 454 pyrosequencing with titanium reagents. Baltimore Canyon is in the Atlantic

Variable Terrestrial GPS Telemetry Detection Rates: Parts 1 - 7Data

These data were used to explore environmental effects on fix success rates (FSR) across a wide range of environmental conditions, desert to alpine biomes, and cover the full range of potential data loss (0-100% FSR) for global positioning system (GPS) bias correction of terrestrial GPS-derived, large mammal habitat use. Also, these data were subsequently used to evaluate patterns in missing data t

EAARL-B Submerged Topography-Saint Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, 2014

This mosaic, prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center, provides lidar-derived submerged topography for a portion of the submerged environs of Saint Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Elevation measurements were acquired by the second-generation Experimental Advanced Airborne Research Lidar (EAARL-B) on March 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, and 24, 2014, in co

EAARL-B Topography-Big Thicket National Preserve: Beaumont and Lower Neches River Units, Texas, 2014

These mosaics, prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center, provide lidar-derived first-surface and bare-earth topography for the Beaumont and Lower Neches River Units of Big Thicket National Preserve in Texas. Elevation measurements were acquired by the second-generation Experimental Advanced Airborne Research Lidar (EAARL-B) on January 11, 15, 17, 18,

Swath bathymetry collected offshore of Fire Island and western Long Island, New York in 2014, U.S. Geological Field Activity 2014-072-FA

Swath bathymetric data were collected offshore of Fire Island and western Long Island, New York in 2014 as a part of a collaborative effort between the U.S. Army Corps and USGS to assess the impact of Hurricane Sandy on this coastal region. These data were compared to swath bathymetric data collected by the USGS in the same area in 2011 to evaluate any modifications to the inner continental shelf,

Shorelines Extracted from Landsat Imagery: Dauphin Island, Alabama

The deployment of Landsat and other earth-observing satellites within the last few decades has provided an opportunity to observe barrier islands at frequent intervals, often many times a year. A variable of persistent interest as a metric for coastal erosion or change is the shoreline. Shorelines derived from imagery have value to resolve coastal changes. This data release includes shoreline posi

Long-tailed Duck (Clangula hyemalis) Microsatellite DNA Data; Alaska, Canada, Russia, 1994-2002

This data set describes nuclear microsatellite genotypes derived from twelve autosomal loci (6AB, Aph02, Aph08, Aph19, Aph23, Bca10, Bca11, Hhi5, Sfi11, Smo07, Smo09, and CRG), and two Z-linked microsatellite loci (Bca4 and Smo1). A total of 111 Long-tailed Ducks were examined for this genotyping with samples coming from the two primary breeding locales within Alaska (Arctic Coastal Plain of Alask

Chukchi Sea Polar Bear Locations, 1985-1996

These data are the raw data collected from satellite radio-collars between1985-1996. The collars were worn by adult female polar bears ranging within the Chukchi Sea polar bear subpopulation. The locations of bears were determined by the ARGOS System on-board the collar and were transmitted via the ARGOS system once every 3 days.
