Pennsylvania Groundwater Watch

Pennsylvania Groundwater Watch provides access to groundwater level data from 108 sites in the USGS Active Groundwater Level Network for Adams, Chester, Montgomery, Philadelphia, and Pike Counties. 

Determining High Groundwater Levels in Massachusetts

A method (commonly referred to as the Frimpter method) was developed in early 1980’s to estimate probable high groundwater levels across Massachusetts. The map and table on the web page linked above provide information on wells in the Massachusetts Observation-Well Network which have been used as index wells.

Explore and Request Data from the BBL

Explore bird banders’ data and learn how many birds have been banded and encountered since 1960. Banding and encounter data are available for request for research purposes. Discover specific banding and encounter data, the number of birds banded per species group, or learn about the lab’s species longevity records.

Geonarrative: Nontidal Network Mapper

The Nontidal Network Mapper geonarrative is a data-driven, interactive narrative that shares the short-term water-year nutrient and suspended-sediment load and trend results for the Chesapeake Bay Program’s non-tidal network (NTN). The mapper provides the primary findings for nitrogen, phosphorus and suspended-sediment trends, and gives the user tools to further examine results.

Metadata Parser

Metadata Parser (MP) is a metadata validation tool and service that checks your XML, SGML, or TSV (tab-separated values) against the FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata.

PAD-US Statistics Dashboard

Administered by the U.S. Geological Survey Gap Analysis Project, the Protected Areas Database of the United States (PAD-US) is the nation’s official inventory of public open space and private protected areas. The lands included in PAD-US are assigned conservation status codes that both denote the level of biodiversity preservation and indicate other natural, recreational and cultural uses.

U.S. Geological Survey COVID-19 Wastewater Surveillance

USGS, as part of the National Wastewater Surveillance System, designed and implemented high-frequency sampling of wastewater across six states throughout September 2021, to support tracking of potential increases in COVID-19 infections in communities. COVID-19 viral loads were determined for each sample with the goal of delivering results to the CDC within three days of sampling. 

Decision Support for Wetland and Wildlife Management

USGS Scientists published a StoryMap showing projected changes in land use, flooded area, and wildlife habitat in California’s Central Valley for five scenarios of future climate and water management.

Liquefaction and Sea-Level Rise

USGS scientists published a storymap explaining the impacts of sea-level rise on liquefaction severity around the San Francisco Bay Area, California for the magnitude 7.0 ‘HayWired’ earthquake scenario along the Hayward Fault.

JACIE Search Tool

Annual Joint Agency Commercial Imagery Evaluation (JACIE) workshops engage federal agencies, their partners, and the commercial remote sensing industry to understand the characteristics and capabilities of current and new data sources, along with the quality of data they provide. This Tool allows the searching of presentations from the workshops, that started in 2001. 

 

Pennsylvania Real-Time Water Quality

Real-time computed concentrations of water-quality constituents such as suspended sediment and fecal coliform bacteria are calculated using ordinary least squares regression models. The results of these models, along with direct water-quality measurements, can be viewed here as time-series graphs, or downloaded as tabular data.

Land Remote Sensing Satellites Online Compendium

The Land Remote Sensing Satellites Online Compendium contains details about past, present and future Earth observing satellites and the sensors they carry. This information compiled by staff at the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
