Data for A Comprehensive Survey of Fault Zones, Breccias, and Fractures in and Flanking the Eastern Española Basin, Rio Grande Rift, New Mexico

V. J. S. Grauch, Jonathan S. Caine, James R. Budahn, Tucker Keren & Scott A. Minor
This release provides the data for a comprehensive survey of geologic structures in the eastern Española Basin of the Rio Grande rift, New Mexico. The release includes data and analyses from 53 individual fault zones and 22 other brittle structures, such as breccia zones, joints, and veins, investigated at a total of just over 100 sites. Structures were examined and compared from poorly lithified Tertiary sediments, as well as Paleozoic sedimentary and Proterozoic crystalline rocks....

Soil, rock and tailings samples were collected in June 2015. Sampling focused on Cinnabar Creek, which flows through the Cinnabar mine site, and Sugar Creek, with additional sites selected to place the data into...

Site-specific Protocol for Monitoring of Waterbirds Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge

P.M. Schmidt, C.L. Lalonde, K.M. Linner, B.A. Grisham & W.C. Conway
The site-specific protocol for monitoring of waterbirds for Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) is based on the national protocol framework for the Integrated Waterbird Management and Monitoring Approach for Nonbreeding Waterbirds (Loges et al. 2015) [https://ecos.fws.gov/ServCat/Reference/Profile/83678]. For this survey, we define “waterbirds” as including waterfowl, cranes, long-legged wading birds, and shorebirds. The purpose of this refuge-specific protocol is to estimate temporal patterns of abundance of migrating and wintering waterbirds at the refuge in accordance with...

Site-specific Protocol for Monitoring White-tailed Deer Using Infrared Triggered Cameras Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge

Paige Schmidt, Christina Lalonde, Jeremy Edwardson & Sarah Lehnen
White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus; hereafter, deer) are a common species found throughout North America. Because deer management occurs at a localized scale, reliable estimates of population sex and age ratios are necessary to set hunt quotas and track deer population trends over time. The most widely-used deer survey techniques have been criticized in recent years for being biased. One alternative is the use of infrared camera traps. This protocol was developed to assist Sequoyah National...

Pufferfish mortality associated with novel polar marine toxins in Hawaii: Data

Thierry M Work, Julie Dagenais, Peter D R Moeller, Kevin R Beauchesne, Renee L Breeden, Robert A Rameyer, William J Walsh, Melanie Abecassis, Donald R Kobayashi, Carla M Conway & James R Winton
In 2010, a mass mortality of pufferfish in Hawaii was dominated by Arothron hispidus showing aberrant neurological behaviors. Using pathology, toxinology, and field surveys, we implicated a series of novel, polar, marine toxins as a likely cause of this mass mortality. Our findings are striking in that 1) a marine toxin was associated with a kill of a fish species that is, itself, toxic; 2) we provide a plausible mechanism to explain clinical signs of...

Tabular Dataset: A BIOENERGETIC MODEL USED TO EVALUATE MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES FOR WINTERING WATERFOWL AT SEQUOYAH NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE, VIAN, OKLAHOMA

Dustin Taylor, Paige Schmidt & William P. Johnson
A primary focus of Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge (SNWR) is to provide habitat and foraging opportunities for waterfowl and other wetland dependent species. SNWR currently meets this objective by providing wetland and agricultural habitat. Wetland restoration and enhancement projects have occurred in recent years, with the intent to sustain healthier and more diverse waterfowl and wildlife populations. However, the relationship between habitat and food availability relative to waterfowl presence has yet to be quantified. This...

River Channel Survey Data, Redwood Creek, California, 1953-2013

Mary Ann Madej, Vicki Ozaki, Rachel Truesdell, Cristiana I Falvo, Kyle D Enns, Tara M Bell, Anthony L Everette & John L Faundeen
Dr. Richard Janda of the USGS began a channel monitoring program in Redwood Creek in northern coastal California in 1973. The USGS continued this work through 2013, when the Research Geologist, Dr. Mary Madej retired. This effort produced 40 years of channel change data in rivers that were disrupted by severe erosion following timber harvest of old-growth redwood forests, a portion of the program's data (plus 1953 data) has been preserved in this data release....

Declassified Satellite Imagery - 2

Earth Resources Observation And Science Center
Declassified satellite images provide an important worldwide record of land-surface change. With the success of the first release of classified satellite photography in 1995, images from U.S. military intelligence satellites KH-7 and KH-9 were declassified in accordance with Executive Order 12951 in 2002. The data were originally used for cartographic information and reconnaissance for U.S. intelligence agencies. Since the images could be of historical value for global change research and were no longer critical to...

Groundwater Withdrawals in Florida and parts of Georgia, Alabama, and South Carolina, 1995 2010

Jason C. Bellino
Groundwater withdrawals are published by county and use type every 5 years by the U.S. Geological Survey (http://water.usgs.gov/watuse/) and published values often do not specify the aquifer(s) from which the withdrawals are derived. The items included in this dataset represent estimates of water use by aquifer in the southeastern United States in order to provide better insight into the 3-dimensional distribution of groundwater withdrawals in time and space.

Aquifer recharge and susceptibility in New Hanover County, North Carolina

Dominick J. Antolino
The objective of this study is to delineate areas of primary groundwater recharge for the surficial, Castle Hayne, and Peedee aquifers in New Hanover County in order to determine the susceptibility of the local drinking-water aquifers. Areas of high susceptibility would coincide with groundwater recharge areas, likely where the Castle Hayne and Peedee aquifers are unconfined and directly connected with shallow surficial sands, as well as developed coastal areas prone to saltwater intrusion. Determining areas...

Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge waterfowl land cover and habitat classification using SPOT-5 imagery

Steven Sesnie, Dustin Taylor & Paige Schmidt
Developing effective habitat conservation and management strategies. The relationship between available habitat and waterfowl numbers obtained from aerial survey transects is not well studied. To determine these relationships, multispectral SPOT-5 satellite imagery acquired for Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge close to the time of waterfowl surveys was used to map habitat conditions. Robust Random Forest classification trees were used to model 16 land cover types using 416 reference locations collected in the field or derived from...

Las Lomas Hillside Lidar

Francis K Rengers & Luke A Mcguire
This data release contains point clouds obtained from three terrestrial laser scanner (TLS) surveys of a hillslope burned by the 2016 Fish Fire in the San Gabriel Mountains, CA, USA. The TLS surveys were completed with a Leica ScanStation C10. All point data are in local coordinates and the units are in meters. The first survey was made on 19 November 2016 prior to the first post-wildfire rainstorm. The second survey was performed on 5...
