Water-Chemistry and Isotope Data for Selected Springs, Geysers, Streams, and Rivers in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

There are over 10,000 hydrothermal features in Yellowstone National Park (YNP), where waters have pH values ranging from about 1 to 10 and surface temperatures up to 95 °C. Active geothermal areas in YNP provide insight into a variety of processes occurring at depth, such as water-rock and oxidation-reduction (redox) reactions, the formation of alteration minerals, and microbial (thermophile) meta

Long-term gas and heat emissions measurements, Norris Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park

We installed an eddy covariance station on July 10, 2018 at Bison Flat, an acid-sulfate, vapor-dominated area (0.04-km2) in Norris Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park, WY to monitor variations in hydrothermal gas and heat emissions. Since then, this station has measured CO2, H2O and sensible and latent heat fluxes, air temperature and pressure, and wind speed and direction on a half-hourly bas

Three-dimensional grid of properties used to analyze induced seismicity recorded from 1991 to 2012 at Paradox Valley, Colorado

Large numerical grid used for finite element and finite volume analysis of induced seismicity in Paradox Basin. The grid construction used the boundaries of three sub-horizontal surfaces; the topography, and the top and bottom of the production formation is determined from drilling and seismic reflection profiling, yielding the surface topography and thickness variations in these data throughout t

Data used to develop a probabilistic assessment of tephra-fall hazards at Hanford, Washington

Data in this data release contain Model input and output for simulations used to estimate the amount of tephra that could fall on the Hanford nuclear waste repository. The results of that study were written up in the report: Mastin, L.G., Van Eaton, A.E., and Schwaiger, H.F., 2020 A Probabilistic Assessment of Tephra-Fall Hazards at Hanford, Washington, from a Future Eruption of Mount St. Helens,

Observations and model simulations of umbrella-cloud growth during eruptions of Mount Pinatubo (Philippines, June 15, 1991), Kelud Volcano (Indonesia, February 14, 2014), and Calbuco Volcano (Chile, April 22-23, 2015)

Model output to accompany the paper "Comparing Simulations of Umbrella-Cloud Growth and Ash Transport with Observations from Pinatubo, Kelud, and Calbuco Volcanoes", by L.G. Mastin and Alexa Van Eaton, published by the journal Atmosphere. The data release includes model input and output used to generate figures in the paper. Reference: Mastin, L.G., and Van Eaton, A.R., 2020, Comparing Simulation

Unoccupied Aircraft Systems (UAS) video of the 2018 lower East Rift Zone eruption of K'lauea Volcano, Hawaii

This dataset contains Unoccupied Aircraft Systems (UAS) footage from the 2018 eruption of K'lauea Volcano's lower East Rift Zone (LERZ), Island of Hawai'i. The four-month-long eruption, from May 3 to September 5, produced lava flows that destroyed 723 structures, inundated 35.5 km2 of land, and added 3.5 km2 of new land to the Island of Hawai'i. There are 1178 UAS videos in this publication, recor

Volcanic plume heights from the summit of Kilauea Volcano, Hawai'i

This data release provides volcanic plume heights from the summit of Kilauea Volcano for 2008-2015, and during the eruptive events of 2018. For 2018, a Secacam Wild Vision Full HD camera with a 7mm focal length was located at 1717 m elevation approximately 15 m south of the Mauna Loa Strip Road within Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, 19.475843degreesN, 155.363560degreesW (WGS84). The camera was po

Continuous gravity data from K?lauea Volcano, Hawai?i

This Data Release contains continuous gravity records from two instruments on Kilauea Volcano, Hawaiʻ'i the HOVL gravimeter, located on the east rim of Halema'uma'u Crater directly above the 2008-2018 summit eruptive vent, and the PUOC gravimeter, located on northern rim of Puu Oo crater on Kīlauea's East Rift Zone. Both instruments were collocated with GNSS stations. The HOVL gravimeter was insta

Campaign GPS measurements on the Island of Hawai'i collected by the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory in 2019

This dataset includes raw and rinex data from 2019 campaign gps data from the Island of Hawai'i in 2019. There were a total of 69 sites occupied. All data is included along with metadata, log sheets and raw/rinex data.

CO2 flux and soil temperature measurements at the Shady Rest thermal area, Mammoth Lakes, California, 2010-2019

The Shady Rest thermal area (SRST) is characterized by elevated soil temperatures and CO2 emissions and associated vegetation kill. The site is located about 3 km northwest of the Casa Diablo geothermal power plant at Mammoth Lakes, California. The elevated soil temperatures and CO2 emissions are related to changes in the shallow hydrothermal system caused by geothermal fluid production. During la

Digital database of the geologic map of Alamagan Volcano, northern Mariana Islands

Alamagan Volcano is a Quaternary stratovolcano along the Mariana Arc, an active subduction zone in the western Pacific Ocean. Although primarily submerged, its peak reaches above sea level, with subaerially-exposed volcanic deposits dating back through the Holocene to the late Pleistocene. These feature data represent such deposits and other geologic features of Alamagan Volcano, describing its in

Digital geologic map data for Semisopochnoi Island, Alaska

This dataset contains digital data that were used for the creation of a geologic map shown in Figure 3 in USGS SIR 2017-5150; Postglacial Eruptive History and Geochemistry of Semisopochnoi Volcano, Western Aleutian Islands, Alaska by Coombs, M.L. and others. The map shows the generalized geology of the island and the locations of stations occupied during field work conducted in the summer of 2005.
