A story map created to walk users through and help understand the mineral deposits of the Midcontinent rift system from Kansas to Michigan.

Map 02 - ArcGIS layer showing contours of the mean of October water levels during the 2000 2009 water years (feet)

Prinos, Scott T.; Dixon, Joann F.
Statistical analyses and maps representing mean, high, and low water level conditions in the surface water levels and groundwater levels in Miami-Dade County were made to help inform decisions necessary for urban planning and development. Sixteen maps were created that show contours of (1) the mean of daily water levels at each site during October and May of the 2000-2009 water years, (2) the 25th, 50th, and 75th percentiles of the daily water level at...

High Resolution Orthoimagery

Earth Resources Observation And Science Center
High resolution orthorectified images combine the image characteristics of an aerial photograph with the geometric qualities of a map. An orthoimage is a uniform-scale image where corrections have been made for feature displacement such as building tilt and for scale variations caused by terrain relief, sensor geometry, and camera tilt. A mathematical equation based on ground control points, sensor calibration information, and a digital elevation model is applied to each pixel to rectify the image...

National Dam Removal Science Database

Jeff Duda, Daniel J. Wieferich & Sky Bristol
Removal of dams is increasing due to aging infrastructure, changing societal needs, and modern safety standards. Where possibilities for river restoration, or improved safety, exceed the benefits of retaining a dam, removal is more often considered a viable option. Deciding if and how to remove aging dams should be guided by lessons learned from previous studies that have examined the ecosystem effects of dam removal. This dynamic database organizes published scientific information relevant to dam...

Transportation-Related Water Projects

Gregory E Granato
The USGS has a long history of cooperative investigations with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and state highway agencies to provide data and information to address various issues related to water resources and the Nation's transportation infrastructure. These issues cover a wide spectrum and include items such as regional flow statistics, flood documentation, regional stream characteristics, bridge scour, and water-quality assessments. Each year, the USGS prepares a summary of it's activities that may be of...

Marine Geophysical Data -- Point Arena to Cape Mendocino

Beeson, J.W.; Johnson, S.Y.; Goldfinger, C.; Hartwell, S.R.
This data release includes marine geophysical data collected on three research cruises conducted in 2010 and 2012 between Point Arena and Cape Mendocino. The overall goal of this research is to better understand the northernmost section of the San Andreas Fault (SAF). In 2010, the USGS collected seismic-reflection profiles crossing the SAF at 1 km spacing from Point Arena to Fort Bragg (survey B-5-10-NC). Then, Oregon State University (OSU) and U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) jointly...

Chemicals of Emerging Concern in Water and Bottom Sediment in Great Lakes Tributaries, 2014 - Collection Methods, Analytical Methods, Quality Assurance Analyses, and Data

Elliott, Sarah M.; Brigham, Mark E.; Jorgenson, Zachary G.; Schoenfuss, Heiko L.; Lee, Kathy E.; Choy, Steven J.; Moore, Jeremy N.; Langer, Sue K.; Menheer, Michael A.; McCool, Molly M.; Foreman, William T.; Furlong, Edward T.; Ban, Jo A.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and St. Cloud State University (SCSU), identified the occurrence of contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) in water and bottom sediment collected in 2014 at 65 sites throughout the Great Lakes Basin. The 2014 effort is part of a long-term study that began in 2010. Included in this directory are collection methods, references to or descriptions of analytical methods used, data...
