Explore and Request Data from the BBL

Explore bird banders’ data and learn how many birds have been banded and encountered since 1960. Banding and encounter data are available for request for research purposes. Discover specific banding and encounter data, the number of birds banded per species group, or learn about the lab’s species longevity records.

SLAB2.0 Interactive Map

Subduction zones are home to the most seismically active faults on the planet. The shallow megathrust interface of subduction zones host our largest earthquakes, and are the only faults capable of M9+ ruptures.

National Strong Motion Data

Processed strong-motion records of engineering interest are available at the Center for Engineering Strong Motion Data (CESMD).

U.S. Vs30 Map Viewer

Vs30, the time-averaged shear-wave velocity (Vs) in the upper 30 meters, is a key index adopted by the earthquake engineering community to account for seismic site conditions. USGS has compiled measured VS30 funded by the USGS and other governmental agencies for 4389 sites in the United States.

Streamflow monitoring network analysis

US Geological Survey operates a streamflow monitoring network that extends across the United States and its territories. The network was analyzed systematically by Konrad and others (2022) for its coverage, resolution, and representation of a wide range of public interests in streamflow information The results can be used to identify priority areas for continued or expanded monitoring.

Avian Influenza Geonarrative

The USGS Ecosystems Mission Area provides science to understand wildlife diseases, including avian influenza (AI). Avian influenza viruses occur naturally in wild birds such as ducks, geese, swans, and gulls. These viruses generally do not cause illness in wild birds but they can be highly pathogenic and cause illness and death in poultry and wildlife. Learn more with this geonarrative.

Did You Feel It?

Did You Feel It? (DYFI) collects information from people who felt an earthquake and creates a shaking intensity map. Visit the Web Tool to report your experience with an earthquake or to see the shaking intensity map created by the felt reports.

EarthExplorer (EE) Bulk Download Web Application (BDWA)

Bulk Download Web Application (BDWA) functions natively within your browser instead of requiring a Java application installation. As a result, this is only available within Chrome-based browsers and Microsoft Edge. The browser will prompt you for permission to view and save to your file system, but will only give the application access to the selected folder.

Geonarrative: Nontidal Network Mapper

The Nontidal Network Mapper geonarrative is a data-driven, interactive narrative that shares the short-term water-year nutrient and suspended-sediment load and trend results for the Chesapeake Bay Program’s non-tidal network (NTN). The mapper provides the primary findings for nitrogen, phosphorus and suspended-sediment trends, and gives the user tools to further examine results.

Lake Tahoe Hydro Mapper

The Hydro Mapper is an interactive map viewer which allows users to see real-time information on stream flow discharge, stage, nutrient, turbidity, sediment loads, and storage data. 

Hurricane Florence Numerical Modeling

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has partnered with North Carolina State University (NCSU), Louisiana State University (LSU) and University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) to investigate hurricane-induced compound flooding and sediment dispersal using coupled hydrology and ocean models.
