Global Vs30 Mosaic Map Viewer

Global Vs30 Mosaic Map Viewer based on topographic slope, with custom embedded maps for Vs30 (the time-averaged shear-wave velocity to 30 m depth) models and data.

Landsat Archive Dashboard

The Landsat Archive Dashboard provides interactive map views of Landsat Collection 2 products per WRS-1 or WRS-2 by Path/Row. There are three Landsat archive maps: Landsat 4 – 9 daytime, Landsat 4 – 9 nighttime, and Landsat 1 – 3. A product summary statistics page is also provided for Landsat 1 – 9. Maps and the statistics page can be filtered on multiple categories.

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.

Bear Lake Water-Quality Data Visualizations

Displaying water-quality data with depth over time at a single location has always presented a challenge. These data visualizations were developed as a response to that issue by Katherine Jones, USGS Office of Quality Assurance.

Mauna Loa - Preparing for the next eruption of Earth's largest active volcano

This geonarrative provides an overview of Mauna Loa’s eruptive history and hazards and includes interactive maps and datasets to help residents prepare for the next eruption.

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.
