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...

Sampling data collected in Cape Cod Bay, Buzzards Bay, and Vineyard Sound; south of Martha's Vineyard; and south and east of Nantucket, Massachusetts, in 2011, U.S. Geological Survey Field Activity 2011-015-FA

Emily C Huntley, Seth Ackerman, R.L. Boeri, T.P Callaghan, D.W. Sampson & Massachusetts Department Of Coastal Zone Management
Sampling survey 2011-015-FA was conducted aboard the OSV Bold in September 2011 by the U.S. Geological Survey and Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management with partners from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries. Three hundred twenty-two stations were occupied with the large SEABOSS, where operational, or the ship's Van Veen grab sampler in Cape Cod Bay, Buzzards Bay, and Vineyard Sound; south of Martha's Vineyard; and south and east of...

Raw Ground Penetrating Radar Data on North American Glaciers

Shad R O'Neel, D. McGrath, G.J. Wolken, Erin N Whorton, S.G. Candela, Louis Sass, Christopher J Mcneil, Emily H Baker, Erich H Peitzsch, Daniel B Fagre, Adam M. Clark, C.E. Florentine, Z.S. Miller, J.E. Christian, K. Christianson, E.L. Babcock, M.G. Loso, A.A. Arendt, E.W. Burgess & A. Gusmeroli
U.S. Geological Survey researchers conducted time-series ground-penetrating radar (GPR) surveys with a Sensors and Software 500-MHz Pulse Ekko Pro system. This data release contains ground-based (ski and snowmobile) as well as airborne common-offset profiles. All profiles are linked to coincident GPS observations. Additionally, common-midpoint data was collected at specific glacier locations. Coincident in-situ data may provide calibration information, and may be composed of any of the following: snow pits and/or snow-pit/snow-core combinations, probe profiles, and...

Still-image frame grabs and benthic habitat interpretation of underwater video footage, March 2014, Faga'alu Bay, Tutuila Island, American Samoa

N.L. D'Antonio
Underwater video imagery was collected in March 2014 in the nearshore waters of Faga'alu Bay on the Island of Tutuila, American Samoa, as part of the U.S. Geological Survey Coastal and Marine Geology Program's Pacific Coral Reefs Project. This data set includes 2,119 still images extracted from the video footage every 10 seconds and an Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) shapefile with locations and benthic habitat interpretations for each frame.

Commercial Data Purchase Imagery - IKONOS

Earth Resources Observation And Science
Since its launch in September 1999, GeoEyes IKONOS satellite has provided a reliable stream of image data since January 2000, which has become the standard for commercial high-resolution satellite data products. With an altitude of 681 kilometers and a revisit time of approximately 3 days, IKONOS produces 1-meter resolution panchromatic and 4-meter resolution multispectral imagery that can be combined to accommodate a wide range of high-resolution imagery applications. See IKONOS for more details.


Earth Resources Observation And Science Center
GeoEyes GeoEye-1 satellite was launched on September 6, 2008 and collects data at a 0.41-meter spatial resolution in the panchromatic mode, (resampled to 0.5-meter) and 1.65-meter resolution in the multispectral mode, with exceptional geolocation accuracy. GeoEye-1 is in a sun-synchronous orbit and makes 15 orbits per day at an altitude of 681 kilometers. Revisit time is three days or sooner, depending on the required look angle. See GeoEye-1 for more details.


Earth Resources Observation And Science Center
DigitalGlobes QuickBird satellite was launched October 18, 2001. An orbit raise was completed in April of 2011, to extend the life of the sensor. The current altitude of 482 kilometers allows the satellite to collect panchromatic data at 65-centimeter resolution, and multispectral data at 2.62-meters resolution. The satellite has a 2.5 day revisit time. QuickBird imagery supports applications ranging from map publishing, to land and asset management, to insurance risk assessment. See QuickBird for more...

Spaceborne Imaging Radar-C (SIR-C)

Earth Resources Observation And Science Center
Spaceborne Imaging Radar-C (SIR-C) is part of an imaging radar system that was flown on board two Space Shuttle flights (9 - 20 April, 1994 and 30 September - 11 October, 1994). The USGS distributes the C-band (5.8 cm) and L-band (23.5 cm) data. All X-band (3 cm) data is distributed by DLR. There are several types of products that are derived from the SIR-C data: Survey Data is intended as a "quick look" browse...

IFSAR Orthorectified Radar Image (ORI) Alaska

Earth Resources Observation And Science Center
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Geospatial Program (NGP) developed the Alaska Mapping Initiative (AMI) to collaborate with State and other Federal partners in Alaska to acquire 3-dimensional elevation data to improve statewide topographic mapping products. AMI coordinates coordinates Federal activities through the Alaska Mapping Executive Committee (AMEC) and State efforts through Alaskas State wide Digital Mapping Initiative (SDMI) to ensure a unified approach for consistent data acquisition and enhancement of topographic data products. AMI...

Global Fiducials Library (GFL)

Earth Resources Observation And Science Center
The Global Fiducials Library (GFL) is a long-term archive of images from U.S. National Imagery Systems which represents a long-term periodic record for selected scientifically important sites. The GFL was created to be the collection, archive and data management component of the Global Fiducials Program (GFP). The GFP is a collaborative effort between Federal Civil Agencies, Academia, and the Intelligence Community. The principal goal of the GFP was to build and maintain a long-term record...

Oceanographic and Water Quality measurements collected in Grand Bay, Alabama/Mississippi - August 2016 - January 2017

Daniel Nowacki, Steven Suttles, Neil Ganju, Ellyn Montgomery & Marinna Martini
Suspended-sediment transport is a critical element governing the geomorphology of tidal marshes and estuaries. Marshes rely both on organic material and inorganic sediment deposition to maintain their elevation relative to sea-level. Additionally, horizontal marsh extent is altered by lateral erosion and accretion. In wetlands within and near Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, portions of the salt marsh are eroding at relatively rapid rates. To understand the connection between sediment fluxes and these processes, the...
