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.

Laboratory estimates of eDNA degradation rates for Actinionais ligamentina eDNA

Data describe a designed environmental DNA (eDNA) experiment for the estimation of eDNA degradation rates for the mucket (Actinonaias ligamentina) from water samples collected in the laboratory. Samples were collected from experiments performed from November 01, 2019 to November 15, 2019 at the USGS Columbia Environmental Research Center, Missouri

Gravity data in the Wet Mountains area, southcentral Colorado, 2023

The U.S. Geological Survey collected ground gravity data as part of a helicopter reconnaissance campaign of the Democrat Creek alkaline complex and Deer Peak quadrangle in the Wet Mountains, Colorado. A total of 60 measurements were collected using a LaCoste and Romberg gravity meter. High accuracy geographic coordinates and elevations were collected using a survey grade Leica GS16 differential GP

Screening geochemistry, gas chromatography, and solid bitumen reflectance data in the Bakken petroleum system, Williston Basin, USA

Thirty-two organic-rich samples from the lower and upper shale members of the Devonian–Mississippian Bakken Formation were collected from eight cores across the Williston Basin, USA, at depths (~7,575–11,330 ft) representing immature through post peak oil/early condensate thermal maturity conditions. Reflectance results were correlated to programmed temperature pyrolysis parameters [hydrogen index

Crop Specific Landsat Derived Reference Evapotranspiration, Evaporative Fraction, and Actual Evapotranspiration for 2016 in the California Central Valley

This dataset contains Landsat-derived images of Evaporative Fraction (ETf), Reference Evapotranspiration (ETo), and Actual Evapotranspiration (ETa) over a portion of California’s Central Valley for 15 dates in 2016. Each of the 15 images used in this study had three corresponding Tif files representing ETf, ETo, and ETa. Data used in this project was sourced from Landsat 8 Surface Reflectance Tier

Delta Management at Fort St. Philip (BS-11): 2021 land-water classification

The Louisiana State Legislature created the Coastal Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act (CWPPRA) in order to conserve, restore, create and enhance Louisiana's coastal wetlands. The wetland restoration plans developed pursuant to these acts specifically require an evaluation of the effectiveness of each coastal wetlands restoration project in achieving long-term solutions to arresting

Computed tomography (CT) scans, photographs, X-ray fluorescence (XRF) scans, geochemistry, X-ray diffraction (XRD), and gamma-ray bulk density data of push cores from Loki's Castle and Favne vent fields, Mohns Ridge

This data release contains computed tomography (CT) scans, photographs, X-ray fluorescence (XRF) scans, geochemical data, X-ray diffractograms (XRD), and gamma-ray bulk density of push cores and sediment subsamples from those cores collected in 2018 and 2019 from Loki’s and Favne Vent Fields, Mohns Ridge, part of the Arctic Mid-Atlantic Ridge. For the geochemical section of the release, data inclu

Monitoring Data to Support the Operation of the Electric Dispersal Barrier System on the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal at Romeoville, Illinois, October 1, 2017, to September 30, 2018

The U.S. Geological Survey monitors water surface flow reversals, commercial vessel traffic, and temperature and specific conductance in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Electric Dispersal Barrier System, EDBS, on the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal, Chicago, Illinois. This data release is the 2018 water year summary of the EDBS monitoring data. Water surface flow reversals at the EDBS are monitor

Time-series measurements of oceanographic and water quality data collected at Thompsons Beach and Stone Harbor, New Jersey, USA, September 2018 to September 2019 and March 2022 to May 2023

In October 2012, Hurricane Sandy made landfall in the Northeastern U.S., affecting ecosystems and communities of 12 states. In response, the National Fish and Wildlife Federation (NFWF) and the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) implemented the Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Program, which funded various projects designed to reduce future impacts of coastal hazards. These projects included mars

Generalized lithology for lithogeochemical classification of the bedrock of Vermont

This data release provides a generalized lithology look-up table for the lithogeochemical classification of Vermont's bedrock geologic map units. The table is defined from the mapped bedrock geologic units published by Ratcliffe and others (2011) and the generalized lithology of rock group A and rock group B for lithogeochemical classification as defined by Robinson and Kapo (2003). The 2003 class

U-Pb Dataset from late Paleozoic record of the Eastern Shelf of the Permian Basin

This dataset accompanies planned publication titled "The Far-Field imprint of the LPIA, its demise, and the onset of a dust-house climate across the Eastern Shelf of the Permian Basin". Zircon ages presented in this dataset are from rocks collected across the eastern margin of the Permian Basin, Texas. The U-Pb zircon ages are used to investigate changes in provenance in this region as a result of

Catch and Biomass per unit effort of fishes in two Northern Wisconsin lakes from 2017-2021

Inland lake ecosystems are transforming due to unprecedented effects of climate changes and disturbance along riparian habitat, diminishing their potential to support fisheries. Walleye Sander vitreus, the most sought-after game fish in north-central North America supporting robust recreational and tribal fisheries, have declined. Climate change, harvest, invasive species, and concurrent increases

Autonomously Collected Benthic Imagery for Substrate Prediction, Lake Michigan 2020-2021

These data consist of down-looking images of Lake Michigan benthos, collected in 2020 and 2021 with an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). Information about each image (i.e., latitude, longitude, depth from surface, altitude, roll, pitch, yaw, and creation time) can be found in the associated csv file. Substrate type was divided into 9 classes based on the Coastal and Marine Ecological Classifica
