The U.S. Inland Creel and Angler Survey Catalog (CreelCat)

The goal of this project is to develop and implement the U.S. Inland Creel and Angler Survey Catalog (CreelCat), a first-of-its-kind, publicly available national database of angler-survey data that establishes a baseline of national inland recreational fishing metrics.

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.

Mapping Radon in Pennsylvania's Groundwater

Radon, a colorless and odorless gas, is commonly found in groundwater in Pennsylvania. This web tool allows interactive display of Pennsylvania Water Science Center measurements of radon in groundwater samples from wells. All data presented here is publicly available and a data download tool is provided that will output all currently-displayed data. 

Oregon Lake Profile Analysis Tools

In response to recent harmful algal blooms (HABs) that have occurred in many of the large water storage reservoirs in the Willamette River Basin the USGS is measuring related water-quality parameters in Detroit Lake, Blue River Lake, and Cougar Lake. The USGS has also developed profiler tools that allow users to see how the water quality parameters vary with depth in those reservoirs.

New Jersey StreamStats

StreamStats is a national web-based application that provides selected water-resource information for New Jersey. Users can easily obtain descriptive information, basin characteristics, and streamflow statistics for USGS streamgages and ungaged stream locations throughout the State. 

Geomag Plots

Bear Lake Water Quality Data Visualizations

Seven water-quality parameters are monitored and plotted with depth over time for two locations on Bear Lake each season. Data is sent through cellular service at synchronized intervals to the USGS National Water Information System (NWIS), where it is stored. The stored data is then reviewed, consolidated, and pushed to interactive data visualizations weekly.

Arctic Rivers Project: Connecting Indigenous knowledge and western science to strengthen collective understanding of the changing Arctic

The Arctic Rivers Project will weave together Indigenous knowledges, monitoring, and the modeling of climate, rivers (flows, temperature, ice), and fish to improve understanding of how Arctic rivers, ice transportation corridors, fish, and communities might be impacted by and adapt to climate change.

U.S. Groundwater Conditions

The U.S. Groundwater Conditions animated data visualization depicts groundwater levels at 2,281 well sites across the U.S. At each site, groundwater levels are shown relative to the historic record (using percentiles), indicating where groundwater is comparatively high or low to what has been observed in the past. The corresponding time series chart shows the percent of sites in each water-le

Nitrogen Loading from Selected Long Island Sound Tributaries from 1995 to 2016

This dashboard application displays nitrogen concentrations and loads in selected Long Island Sound tributaries.
