National Early Detection and Rapid Response (EDRR) Framework
A geonarrative detailing the National Early Detection and Rapid Response (EDRR) Framework, a structure for interagency coordination to support early detection biosurveillance and rapid response to invasive species.
Amphibian and Reptile Species Distribution Explorer
The Amphibian and Reptile Species Distribution Explorer provides information about herptile distributions and species richness in an easy-to-understand and accessible format for scientists and natural resource managers, interested landowners, citizen scientists, and anyone interested in amphibians and reptiles.
Interactive Supplement - When and How Often do Seedings Experience a Wildfire?
Interactive Tableau supplement to the paper “Protecting Restoration Investments from the Cheatgrass-fire Cycle in Sagebrush Steppe.”
Interactive Map: Potomac Wastewater Mapper
The Potomac Wastewater Mapper is intended to help identify streams with elevated wastewater conditions or predicted ecological risk posed by municipal effluent-derived wastewater mixtures that may require further attention by resource managers, either through targeted contaminant monitoring and sampling or wastewater treatment plant upgrades to improve contaminant removal.
The 2023 Kahramanmaraş, Turkey, Earthquake Sequence
On February 6, 2023, a M 7.8 earthquake occurred in southern Turkey near the northern border of Syria. This earthquake was followed about 9 hours later by a M 7.5 earthquake approximately 90 km to the north. This interactive geonarrative describes the tectonic setting in the region, past seismicity in the area, and details of the earthquake rupture.
Monitoring Virginia Eastern Shore Groundwater Conditions
Groundwater levels in layered aquifer systems like the Virginia Eastern Shore are often monitored using wells in multiple aquifers at the same location. Colors in the simplified cross-section illustration below correspond to the circles representing wells on the map. The list of monitoring-well layers can be used to control the map display of wells for individual aquifers.
Drought Forecasting for Groundwater in Northeastern US
This application allows the display and query of groundwater drought probabilities for Northeast region wells. This application allows users to view, query, select, and export groundwater drought probabilities for next three months.
Remote Sensing Classroom
We’ve created fun and engaging educational lessons that allow students to look at satellite imagery and perform the same analysis as our remote sensing scientists at EROS. Students of all ages can learn how remote sensing scientists use Landsat satellite data to track changes to the Earth’s surface over the years. We’ve also added a few games and puzzles so you can test your skills too.
EROS Media Gallery
At EROS we take pride in our images! Here you can find a vast collection of our favorites, whether you are looking for your home state, imagery for an event, or something purely artistic. Select a category to get started.
Geonarrative: Land Motion and Subsidence on the Virginia Coastal Plain
Along the coast of Virginia, the USGS and our partners are constantly monitoring our land and waters in new and innovative ways. In Virginia, scientists at the Virginia and West Virginia Water Sciences Center are drilling deep into the Earth to assess the impacts of groundwater use. By studying the impacts of groundwater use, scientists can determine associated risks, such as land subsidence.
2022 in Review
2022 was monumental for the program, including celebrating its 50-year anniversary, transitioning a fully operational Landsat 9 to the USGS team, and extending the Landsat 7 science mission. In addition to these major events, we have included an interactive map showcasing events Landsat satellites captured 2022 from around the world.
USGS Klamath River Basin Mapper
Explore an interactive map of USGS stream gages in the Klamath basin. These gages belong to a sediment network established to monitor suspended-sediment movement from Keno dam to the estuary.
