Alicia Torregrosa
This article for BayGeo Journal describes the fog and low cloud cover (FLCC) data set and derived maps for Central and Northern California coast. The figures include a Landsat view of FLCC over the San Francisco Bay Area (SFBA), a contour map for SFBA of summertime average hours per day FLCC at a resolution suitable for poster-sized printing, and maps of month-hour averages that show location specific clearing of fog and low clouds from 8...

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...

Underwater Video Footage, March 2014, Faga`alu Bay, Tutuila Island, American Samoa

Ann E. Gibbs & Nicole L. D'Antonio
Underwater video imagery was collected in March 2014 in the nearshore waters of Fagaalu 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. Included here are 40 video files in .mpg format and an Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) shapefile with location (navigation) points every two seconds.

Digital elevations and extents of regional hydrogeologic units in the Northern Atlantic Coastal Plain aquifer system from Long Island, New York, to North Carolina (ver. 1.1, January 2021)

J.P. Pope, D.C. Andreasen, E.R. McFarland & M.K. Watt
A digital model of the sedimentary Northern Atlantic Coastal Plain aquifer system is composed of 20 rasters and hydrogeologic unit extent polygons. Rasters describe the top elevations of regional aquifers and confining units at a resolution of 2640 feet (1/2 mile). The rasters are clipped to the extent polygons, which represent the spatial extents of the hydrogeologic units onshore and several miles offshore. This three-dimensional hydrogeologic model was constructed as part of a U.S. Geological...

USA National Phenology Network Extended Spring Index Gridded Data Products

Repository for gridded data products produced by the USA National Phenology Network related to the Extended Spring Indices. Provides a manifest of data products as well as information regarding how they were generated and technical documentation outlining how to access and use gridded data.

Distribution of Benthic Habitats at Crocker Reef, Florida

D.G. Zawada, K.H. Netchy & J.P. Resnick
The distribution of benthic habitats for a 1-km x 1-km area around Crocker Reef in the Florida Key is based upon underwater digital images of the seafloor collected June 24-25, 2014. The imagery was collected using the USGS shallow Along-Track Reef-Imaging System (sATRIS), a boat-based, pole-mounted sensor package for mapping shallow-water benthic environments. The polygons contained in this shapefile represent the 4 general habitat types found at Crocker Reef: hardbottom, rubble, sand, and seagrass.

Stochastic Empirical Loading and Dilution Model (SELDM)

Gregory E Granato
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are currently cooperating in a national project to redesign the FHWA's highway-runoff quality planning model. The FHWA initiated the project to update the 1990 FHWA highway runoff quality model to reflect changes in runoff quality and to address the importance of upstream receiving-water concentrations for assessing the potential effects of runoff in these receiving waters. We developed the SELDM as a database application so...

Landsat 7 ETM+ Cloud Validation Masks

Richard R. Irish
This dataset was originally created by Richard Irish, NASA-GSFC, and was derived manually from Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) Level 1G scenes. Its purpose is train and validate cloud masking algorithms. Each product is provided as a thematic raster, and includes the classes of cloud , thin cloud , clear , and fill . While these validation images were subjectively digitized by a single analyst, they provide useful information for quantifying the accuracy of...

Landsat 8 SPARCS Cloud Validation Masks

M. Joseph Hughes
This dataset was originally created by M. Joseph Hughes, Oregon State University, and was derived manually from Landsat Operational Land Imager (OLI) scenes. Its purpose is train and validate cloud masking and land cover classification algorithms. Each product is provided as a thematic raster, and includes the classes of cloud , cloud shadow , snow/ice , water , and flooded . While these validation images were subjectively digitized by a single analyst, they provide useful...

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.

Conterminous United States Remote Sensing Phenology Metrics Database

Jesslyn F Brown
Phenological dynamics of terrestrial ecosystems reflect the response of the Earth's vegetation canopy to changes in climate and hydrology and are thus important to monitor operationally. Researchers at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center have developed methods for documenting the seasonal dynamics of vegetation in an operational fashion from satellite time-series data. The phenological metrics data produced at USGS EROS provide indicators of key phenological events for the conterminous...
