TRAILS – Trail Routing, Analysis, and Information Linkage System

TRAILS – Trail Routing, Analysis, and Information Linkage System is a trail planning and collaboration tool that utilizes geospatial analysis to determine potential routes for new trail connections or to reroute an existing trail.  

USGS Trails Explorer

The USGS Trails Explorer visualizes the current distribution of aggerated trails.  

Coastal Salinity Index

The location of the freshwater–saltwater interface along the coast is an important factor in the ecological and socioeconomic dynamics of coastal communities. Salinity is a critical response variable that integrates hydrologic and coastal dynamics including sea level, tides, winds, precipitation, streamflow, and tropical storms.

Georgia Water Use

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) South Atlantic Water Science Center and the Environmental Protection Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources have been collecting and compiling water-use information in Georgia since 1980 as part of an ongoing cooperative agreement.

Groundwater Conditions of Georgia

The Groundwater Conditions of Georgia web tool has interactive maps and graphs, that calculate water level trends over time. The application is a continuation of a series of reports begun in 1978.  

Colorado River Basin drought and the 2023 water year

How wet was 2023 when compared to historical averages? This geonarrative compares precipitation and streamflow amounts observed during the 2023 water year with historical conditions in the Colorado River Basin over the last 30 years. While the 2023 water year was a wet year with above-average precipitation at many locations, it was not uniformly good or record-setting. 

Lake Class and Walleye Natural Resources Information

The goal of this tool is that users of the tool can use the information provided here to inform their decisions (or their advice to those with decision-making authority) about whether to Resist, Accept, or Direct in walleye fisheries in Wisconsin. 

BatTool

The BatTool R package provides functions implementing a demographic matrix model with associated Shiny graphical user interface.

REmote Aquatic Chlorophyll-a Tracker (REACT)

This tool shows the presence of aquatic chlorophyll-a in select waterbodies. Note: This tool indicates the presence of aquatic chlorophyll-a and should not be used to determine if a toxic cyanobacterial bloom (harmful algal bloom) is present. 

Denitrification Only Removes Minor Amounts of Nitrate in Eastern San Joaquin Valley Groundwater

Nitrate is a major concern to water-resource managers in the eastern San Joaquin Valley, and there are extensive regulatory programs in place that seek to reduce nonpoint-source loading and eventually reduce concentrations in groundwater. 

Nothing Happens Right Away—Predicting Decreases in Nitrate Concentrations After Zero Loading is Achieved

This focuses on how we use groundwater age to predict changes in nitrate concentrations over time. Typically, deep public supply wells draw from deeper parts of the aquifer where water is decades, centuries, or even millenia old.

Irrigation Causes Naturally Occurring Uranium to Dissolve into Groundwater in the Eastern San Joaquin Valley

The USGS first identified uranium as a potential issue in California's groundwater during studies conducted in the Modesto area funded by the USGS National Water Quality Assessment Program. Subsequently, the GAMA program undertook a broader analysis of uranium concentrations across the State.
