Columbia River Gorge Landslides

Extreme rainfall during two atmospheric river events in January 2021 and January 2022 triggered a series of debris flows in the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon. The flows had significant impacts, including multiple highway closures and one fatality.  This story map highlights rainfall data and observations of debris flow deposits by the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI).

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. 

Abstracts at a Glance

The USGS is the research arm of the U.S. Department of the Interior and has established a series of strategic goals that focus its efforts on serving the American people. Within the USGS, the Ecosystems Mission Area is responsible for conducting and sponsoring research that addresses overarching goal "Science that Supports Wild and Urban Spaces, and the Landscapes In-Between." 

Geonarrative: Feasibility of Developing a GIS-Based Hydraulic Modeling Tool for Stream Crossing Projects in Massachusetts

This interactive geonarrative presents information on how feasible it is to develop a GIS-based hydraulic modeling tool for preliminary culvert designs for stream crossings in Massachusetts.

World's Longest Mule Deer Migration: Red Desert to Hoback

In 2016, researchers in Wyoming discovered the world's longest migration of mule deer. A doe fitted with a GPS tracking collar migrated 242 miles one way. She is known as Deer 255. Each summer, she lives in the heart of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, but travels far into Wyoming's sagebrush sea and high desert ecosystem for winter.

A Model Partnership-The Cooperative Research Units Program

One of the three pillars of the CRU mission is to lead research that provides science solutions for the management needs of our State and Federal agency cooperators—research that informs decision making. The CRU program with its Federal, State, and university partners are proactively working together to conduct science at transboundary landscape levels to meet the needs of all stakeholders.

Interactive Map: Virginia and West Virginia PFAS Sampling Locations

This interactive map shares locations where per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) have been sampled by the Virginia and West Virginia Water Science Center in collaboration with partner agencies.

USGS 3D Geologic Model Inventory

This Webapp can be used to visualize and explore the inventory of published USGS 3D geological models.

Watershed Monitoring in Clear Lake Tributaries

Data viewer that allows users to see the streamflow and water quality monitoring sites at Clear Lake and its tributaries.  Data is from the USGS National Water Information System and California Department of Water Resources and Lake County databases.
