MODFLOW 6 - LACP uses the MODFLOW 6.4.0 source code and modifies the Horizontal Flow Barrier (HFB) package to allow simulation of vertical hydraulic conductance (CV) by connection rather than by cell, an option available for previous versions of MODFLOW (USG). The MODFLOW 6 - LACP HFB package is used to simulate thin, vertical, and low-permeability geologic features (barriers) and acts to supplem

Code for analysis of polar bear maternal den abundance and distribution in four regions of northern Alaska and Canada within the Southern Beaufort Sea subpopulation boundary (1982-2015)

We have archived the derived data files and R/JAGS code for our analysis as a U.S. Geological Survey data release (link ). The code is divided into three R scripts: 1) pbdens_landdens_JWM.r contains R code for fitting hierarchical Bayesian models of polar bear maternal den abundance and distribution for the Southern Beaufort Sea (SBS) subpopulation, 1982-2015. This script requires the installation

Ecological Data Mapper

This application was created to visualize and interact with the ecological data from the ongoing monitoring effort on two previously restored streams in Reston, Virginia - Snakeden Branch and The Glade. The “Reston monitoring program” includes the measurement of hydrologic, water-quality, and ecological data and evaluations of changes in these measurements over time. For more information about the

Applying Simulated Treatments to Bat Populations Experiencing Severe White-nose Syndrome Mortality

We developed a model allowing for the application of treatment strategies to bat populations at risk of severe mortality from WNS. The model allows the bat population to exist within a network of hibernacula and updates survival, reproduction, movement, treatment applications, and treatment related disturbance annually. For simplicity, the effects of WNS are experienced across all hibernacula on t

grsg_lekdb: Compiling and standardizing greater sage-grouse lek databases, version 1.1.0

Greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) are landscape-scale sagebrush obligate species and an important gamebird and iconic species of the western United States. They occupy the sagebrush biome in western North America, extending east of the Sierra Nevada/Cascade Mountain ranges to the western regions of the Great Plains of the United States. Sage-grouse are one of the most closely monitor

USGS Model Catalog intake repository

This project contains the repository component of a modular catalog implementation.


This Python package is intended to assist with summarization of landscape information to stream watershed drainages (local summaries). Methods are built in a generalized way and are intended to support efforts for any stream network having polygon based drainage watersheds. The output of these methods can be used to calculate stream network summaries using xstrm.

lcp_centrality: Defining least-cost paths and graph theory centrality measures

We present software that creates least-cost path spanning trees, a least-cost path minimum spanning tree, and graph theory centrality measures. The software was developed to support identification of population structures--specifically, greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus), but also support other species or graph theory applications where least-cost paths are desired. We used habitat pa

North American Bat Monitoring Program: NABat Acoustic ML, Version 1.0.1

Bats play crucial ecological roles, and provide valuable ecosystem services, yet many populations face serious threats from various ecological disturbances. The North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat) aims to assess status and trends of bat populations, while developing innovative and community-driven conservation solutions using its unique data and technology infrastructure. To support scal


This is an R-package designed to create water-quality reports for either U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) wildlife refuge boundaries, or user-specified Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) boundaries (8 or 10 digit HUC services are available). Functions are included to take the user's geographical request, and find the sites that measure water-quality parameters, and retrieve that data. A workflow walks
