Flood-Inundation mapping in Georgia, North and South Carolina

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has created flood-inundation maps for selected streamgage sites in Georgia, North and South Carolina. These maps depict the approximate area that would be inundated at selected water levels, ranging from approximately top-of-bank to the maximum observed water level. The inundated areas depicted on these maps are approximate, and accuracy of the maps is a...

River WebCams of the South Atlantic Water Science Center (Georgia, North and South Carolina)

We have installed webcams at a number of locations in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina to allow you to view, in real time, the current river-stage conditions. The Georgia and South Carolina cameras allow users to temporarily control the tilt, pan, and zoom. During periods of flooding, the South Atlantic Water Science Center might take control of the camera.

Bird Banding Laboratory

The Bird Banding Laboratory (BBL) is an integrated scientific program established in 1920 supporting the collection, archiving, management and dissemination of information from banded and marked birds in North America.  This information is used to monitor the status and trends of resident and migratory bird populations. Because birds are good indicators of the health of the environment, the...

Heavy-Mineral Sand Resources in the Southeastern U.S.

We are assessing the extent of industrial mineral resources hosted by heavy-mineral sands in the coastal plain of the southeastern United States. “Heavy-mineral sands" (HMS) is a term commonly used in industry and geologic literature to describe layered sediments deposited in coastal environments that contain dense (“heavy") minerals of economic value. The heavy minerals extracted from these...
