U.S. Geological Survey - Gap Analysis Project Species Habitat Maps CONUS_2001

Alexa McKerrow
Gap Analysis Project (GAP) habitat maps are predictions of the spatial distribution of suitable environmental and land cover conditions within the United States for individual species. Mapped areas represent places where the environment is suitable for the species to occur (i.e. suitable to support one or more life history requirements for breeding, resting, or foraging), while areas not included in the map are those predicted to be unsuitable for the species. While the actual distributions...

The Impact of Sea-Level Rise and Climate Change on Pacific Ocean Atolls that House Department of Defense Installations

Laura Z Torresan & Curt Storlazzi
This web site describes the Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center Project titled, "The Impact of Sea-Level Rise and Climate Change on Pacific Ocean Atolls that House Department of Defense Installations." The study itself is a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Deltares (an applied research institute in the Netherlands), and the University of Hawaii (UH). The goals of this study are to: 1.) provide basic understanding...

Health-Based Screening Levels for evaluating water-quality data

Health-Based Screening Levels (HBSLs) are non-enforceable water-quality benchmarks that can be used to (1) supplement U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs) and Human Health Benchmarks for Pesticides (HHBPs), (2) determine whether contaminants found in surface-water or groundwater sources of drinking water may indicate a potential human-health concern, and (3) help prioritize monitoring efforts. HBSLs were developed by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program for contaminants that do not...

California Basin Characterization Model: A Dataset of Historical and Future Hydrologic Response to Climate Change

Lorraine E. Flint & Alan L. Flint
The Basin Characterization Model (BCM), can translate fine-scale maps of climate trends and projections into the hydrologic consequences, to permit evaluation of the impacts to water availability at regional, watershed, and landscape scales, as caused by changes in temperature and precipitation.

Avian Habitat Data; Seward Peninsula, Alaska, 2012

Lance B. McNew & Colleen M. Handel
This data product contains avian habitat data collected on the Seward Peninsula, Alaska, USA, during 21 May ? 10 June 2012. We conducted replicated 10-min surveys at 111 points located along 9 transects occurring over gradients of physical and biotic habitat conditions and recorded observations of individual birds identified to species. Survey points, or sites, were located approximately 500 m apart and observations of birds were limited to a maximum distance of 250 m to...

Near-Surface Water-Quality Surveys of the Caloosahatchee River and Downstream Estuaries, Florida, USA

Travis M. Knight By Amanda C. Booth
Moving-boat surveys are used to produce water-quality maps at least six times per year. The boat surveys typically began at the boat ramp near Punta Rassa, enters San Carlos Bay, travel around Pine Island and finally travel upstream along the Caloosahatchee River, ending at the W. P. Franklin Lock and Dam (S-79). Sensor and coordinate data are recorded as the boat travels throughout the study area making measurements using a flow-through onboard pump system. Salinity,...

Mapping Extent and Change in Surface Mines Within the United States for 2001 and 2006

William Acevedo Christopher E. Soulard
Researchers with the USGS Western Geographic Science Center and Eros Data Center have developed a semi-automated procedure to map the country's mining footprint and establish a baseline to monitor changes in mine extent over time. The process includes a tool that uses seed points sourced from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), USGS Mineral Resources Data System (MRDS), and USGS National Land Cover Dataset (NLCD) and recodes patches of barren land that meet a 'distance...
