30 year (1981 - 2010) annual average of daily intensity of precipitation for a rain event

Michael E Wieczorek
This metadata record describes the average daily precipitation intensity for rain events during the 30-year period 1981-2010 for the conterminous United States. A rain event is defined as a period when the number of consecutive days with precipitation equals or exceeds 1 millimeter. Daily precipitation intensity is defined as the amount of precipitation over the duration of a rain event divided by the number of days in a rain event. The source data was produced...

Physics-based numerical model simulations of wave propagation over and around theoretical atoll and island morphologies for sea-level rise scenarios

James B. Shope & Curt D. Storlazzi
Schematic atoll models with varying theoretical morphologies were used to evaluate the relative control of individual morphological parameters on alongshore transport gradients. Here we present physics-based numerical SWAN model results of incident wave transformations for a range of atoll and island morphologies and sea-level rise scenarios. Model results are presented in NetCDF format, accompanied by a README text file that lists the parameters used in each model run. These data accompany the following publication: Shope,...

Streamflow and Water-Quality Data for Selected Streams in the Daniel Boone National Forest, Eastern Kentucky, 2015-17

Mac A. Cherry
During 2015-17, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service (USDA FS), carried out a study to characterize the hydrology and water chemistry in the Rock Creek and Cumberland River areas of the Daniel Boone National Forest. The study areas were historically mined for coal and have since been the focus of remediation efforts. The study examined the contributions of tributaries and gains/losses in both areas, and continuous...

Sample collection information and microsatellite data for Gunnison sage-grouse pre and post translocation

Anthony D Apa, Cameron Aldridge, Sara J Oyler-McCance & Shawna J Zimmerman
Maintenance of genetic diversity is important for conserving species, especially those with fragmented habitats and/or ranges. In the absence of natural dispersal, translocation can be used to achieve this goal. However, the long-term impacts from translocation can be expensive and difficult to evaluate. This dataset is used to evaluate genetic change as a result of translocation and represents samples collected before and after translocations were conducted.

Debris-flow inundation and damage data from the 9 January 2018 Montecito Debris-Flow Event

Jason W Kean, Dennis M Staley, Francis K Rengers, Kate E Allstadt, Jeffrey A Coe, Aaron J Sigman & Janis Hernandez
On 9 January 2018, intense rain above Montecito, California triggered a series of debris flows from steep catchments in the Santa Ynez Mountains. These catchments were burned three weeks earlier by the 1140 km2 Thomas Fire. After exiting the mountain front, the debris flows traveled over 3 km down a series of alluvial fans, killing 23 people and damaging over 400 homes. To understand the flow dynamics and damage of the debris flows and to...
