Sinkholes and Springs of the Ozark Physiographic Province, northern Arkansas, from Topographic Maps

Noel Turner
Springs and sinkholes in the Ozark Plateaus Physiographic Province (Ozarks) in Arkansas were digitized from 1:24,000 scale topographic maps to produce a digital dataset of karst features. Karst landscapes generally are created from bedrock dissolution that results in distinctive landforms, including sinkholes, springs, caves, and sinking streams, and a high degree of interaction between surface water and groundwater. The dataset can be used to better understand groundwater flow in the karst landscape of the Arkansas...

Mean annual water-budget components for Hawaii Island, Hawaii, for predevelopment conditions, 1916-83 rainfall and 1870 land cover

John A. Engott
The shapefile associated with this metadata file represents the spatial distribution of mean annual water-budget components, in inches, for Hawaii Island, Hawaii. The water-budget components in the shapefile were computed by a water-budget model for a scenario representative of predevelopment conditions (1916-83 rainfall and 1870 land cover), as described in USGS Scientific Investigations Report (SIR) 2015-5164. The model was developed for estimating groundwater recharge and other water-budget components for each subarea of the model. The...

National Assessment of Hurricane-Induced Coastal Erosion Hazards: Gulf of Mexico Update

Kara S. Doran, , Justin J. Birchler, Nathaniel G. Plant & Jacquelyn R. Overbeck
These data sets contain information on the probabilities of hurricane-induced erosion (collision, inundation and overwash) for each 1-km section of the Gulf of Mexico coast for category 1-5 hurricanes. The analysis is based on a storm-impact scaling model that uses observations of beach morphology combined with sophisticated hydrodynamic models to predict how the coast will respond to the direct landfall of category 1-5 hurricanes. Hurricane-induced water levels, due to both surge and waves, are compared...

Landsat 8 Biome Cloud Validation Masks

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center in Sioux Falls, SD developed a cloud validation dataset from 96 unique Landsat 8 images called the L8 Biome dataset. These images were selected from various locations around the world, and are evenly divided between eight unique biomes and three different cloud cover categories. The images are curated by biome and cloud cover to reduce bias in any one region or cloud cover...

Data used to estimate and project the effects of climate and land use change on wetland densities in the Prairie Pothole Region

Helen R Sofaer
These data were used to estimate models relating climate and land cover to wetland densities and develop projections under climate and land use change. Data for model estimation were derived from historical climate data, estimates of hydrological processes based on the Variable Infiltration Capacity model, National Wetlands Inventory, and the National Land Cover Database. Wetland densities were based on observations from the Waterfowl Breeding Population and Habitat Survey. Projected climate conditions were derived from ten...

Trace elements concentrations in pore water and surface water near the sediment-water interface in the Upper Columbia River, Washington (2015)

Stephen E. Cox, William G. Brumbaugh, Laurie S. Balistrieri, Ruth E. Wolfe, Monique Adams & Theresa D. Olson
Smelter slag containing copper and other trace elements is widespread in riverbed sediment of the upper Columbia River (UCR) of the United States. To evaluate potential risk to aquatic life concentrations of copper and other trace elements were measured in shallow pore-water and in river water samples collected near the sediment-water interface. Samples were collected using an in-situ pore-water profiler to collect a suite of four water samples from above, at, and below the sediment-water...

Pressure and flow rate measurements to support hydraulic tomography of the Floridan aquifer system at the North District Wastewater Treatment Plant, Miami-Dade County, Florida

Jeffrey N. King
U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with Miami-Dade County, performed a sequential, aquifer stress test from August 15 to October 12, 2011, on the Floridan aquifer system at the North District Wastewater Treatment Plant, in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Miami-Dade County stressed the Floridan aquifer system with four municipal injection wells at the North District Wastewater Treatment Plant. Injection wells IW1, IW3, and IW4 stressed the aquifer system with injection of as much as 1.8 cubic meters...

Water and sediment geochemistry data from the vicinity of Yellow Pine, Idaho

JoAnn M. Holloway
Samples were collected at or near baseflow conditions. Water pH and specific conductance were measured in the field, with specific conductance also measured in the laboratory and calculated based on the ionic strength of samples based on laboratory analyses. Water samples were collected for laboratory analyses using a peristaltic pump with silicon tubing. Samples were filtered through a reusable plexiglass filter holder with nylon screws using 0.45m polyethersulfone membranes that were rinsed with approximately 20mL...

Walrus Bayesian State-Space Bering Sea Chukchi Sea 2008-2012

W. S. Beatty
State-space models offer researchers an objective approach to modeling complex animal location datasets, and state-space model behavior classifications are often assumed to have a link to animal behavior. We evaluated the behavioral classification accuracy of a Bayesian state-space model in Pacific walruses using Argos satellite tags outfitted with sensors to detect animal behavior in real time. We fit a two-state discrete-time continuous-space Bayesian state-space model to data from 306 Pacific walruses tagged in the Chukchi...

MODFLOW2005 model used to simulate the effects of groundwater withdrawals from aquifers in Ocean County and vicinity, New Jersey

Stephen J Cauller, Lois M Voronin & Mary M Chepiga
A three-dimensional groundwater flow model was developed to simulate the effects of withdrawals on the groundwater-flow systems of five aquifers in and around Ocean County, New Jersey-the unconfined Kirkwood-Cohansey aquifer system and Vincentown aquifer, and three confined aquifers--the Rio Grande water-bearing zone, the Atlantic City 800-foot sand, and the Piney Point aquifer. A transient model was used to simulate conditions that represent no groundwater withdrawals, 2000-2003 groundwater withdrawals, and maximum-allocation groundwater withdrawals. Particle-tracking analysis, using...

Janet T. Watt, Patrick J. Hart & Jared W. Kluesner
This data release includes chirp seismic-reflection data collected in 2014 aboard the USGS R/V Snavely in San Pablo Bay, part of northern San Francisco Bay. These data were acquired to image the shallow geologic structure, particularly that related to the Hayward and Rodgers Creek Faults.

FishVis, predicted occurrence and vulnerability for 13 fish species for current (1961 - 1990) and future (2046 - 2100) climate conditions in Great Lakes streams.

Jana S. Stewart, Shawn A. Covert, Damon Krueger, Michael T. Slattery, Daniel J Wieferich, Stephen M Westenbroek, Dana M. Infante, & John D. Lyons
Climate change is expected to alter the distributions and community composition of stream fishes in the Great Lakes region in the 21st century, in part as a result of altered hydrological systems (stream temperature, streamflow, and habitat). Resource managers need information and tools to understand where fish species and stream habitats are expected to change under future conditions. Fish sample collections and environmental variables from multiple sources across the United States Great Lakes Basin were...
