Los Cambios Costeros en Puerto Rico

El Servicio Geológico de los Estados Unidos (USGS, por sus siglas en inglés) ha desarrollado una geonarrativa en español e inglés sobre los cambios en la costa de Puerto Rico que explica las tendencias históricas de la línea costera de la isla, los impactos de los huracanes en la costa y las posibles soluciones para proteger a las comunidades y mitigar los peligros costeros.

Shoreline Changes in Puerto Rico

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) has developed a Spanish and English geonarrative that displays shoreline changes in Puerto Rico and covers topics on the island’s historical shoreline trends, hurricane impacts on the coast, and possible solutions that could help protect communities and mitigate coastal hazards.

Chester County (Pennsylvania) Monitoring Networks

Since 1969, the Pennsylvania Water Science Center has had a cooperative program with Chester County to measure and describe water resources. Cooperation has been primarily with the Chester County Water Resources Authority, with participation from the Chester County Health Department.

The Chester County Monitoring Network web tool provides near real-time water data. 

ScienceBase Data Release Summary Dashboard

The ScienceBase Data Release (SBDR) Summary Dashboard aggregates information about USGS's ScienceBase data releases, including the number of data releases by Mission Area, Region, and Science Center. It allows users to filter data release metrics by Science Center and date range and download a CSV

Informing Future Decision Making on Uranium Mining in Arizona: Science for Health and Environment

The USGS is conducting research at uranium-bearing breccia pipe deposits to address data gaps related to the potential effects of uranium exploration and mining activities on the Grand Canyon watershed, its people, wildlife, and water resources. Study locations are primarily on Federal lands with a few locations on Tribal lands, and include historic and active mines.

Cascadia subduction zone database: compilation of published datasets relevant to Cascadia subduction zone earthquake hazards and tectonics

As part of the USGS Powell Center working group on Cascadia earthquake hazards, we compile and host several available geologic, paleoseismic, geophysical, and instrumental datasets along the Cascadia subduction zone. The ArcGIS online map and downloadable map package include both raster images and shapefiles. In this Story Map, we outline the features and datasets compiled.

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.

Pennsylvania Groundwater Quality Monitoring Network Data Exploration Tool

USGS Pennsylvania Water Science Center, in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, samples 28 wells biannually to monitor ambient groundwater quality conditions in a variety of settings throughout Pennsylvania. The most recent results for selected constituents can be accessed through the Groundwater Quality Monitoring Network Data Exploration Tool.

EXPRESS Data Viewer

Expanding Pacific Research and Exploration of Submerged Systems (EXPRESS) is an inter-agency federal and nonfederal collaborative research effort aimed at gathering new data of the deep ocean, continental shelf and slope offshore of California, Oregon and Washington. This expansive partnership includes three federal agencies and additional principle investigators from leading research institutes.

Climate Change and Freshwater Fish

Lakes in Wisconsin are getting warmer, and fish communities are changing as a result. Understanding recent trends and anticipating future changes can help decision-makers protect resilient populations, adapt to new conditions, and effectively communicate realistic expectations.

2021 Climate Adaptation Science Centers Annual Summary

A geonarrative highlighting the Climate Adaptation Science Center's science, partnerships, and capacity building activities from Fiscal Year 2021.

Louisiana’s Coastwide Reference Monitoring System (CRMS)

The CRMS network includes 391 sites with standardized data collection techniques and fixed sampling schedules. Monitoring data including hydrologic, accretion, herbaceous marsh vegetation, forested swamp vegetation, soil properties, surface elevation, and land/water composition are available for download from the CRMS website.
