Fluid levels in the Oxnard Oil Field, Ventura County, California

Michael J Stephens, David H Shimabukuro, Celia Z Rosecrans & E Watson
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), compiled Fall 2017 fluid level elevation data from idle oil and gas wells in the Oxnard Oil Field to estimate vertical hydraulic head difference between oil production and overlying groundwater aquifer zones. Fluid elevations came from two sources, measurements in idle oil and gas wells and groundwater elevations in water wells in the overlying aquifer estimated at the points...

WRTDS annual concentrations, loads and statistical trend likelihoods for sites in the Spokane River watershed, water years 1990-2018

Lauren M Zinsser
A long history of mining and widespread metals contamination in the Spokane River watershed have led to the area's designation as a Superfund site and extensive, ongoing remedial actions. Long-term (water years 1990 to 2018) water-quality data from twelve sites were used to develop Weighted Regressions on Time, Discharge and Season (WRTDS) and WRTDS with Kalman filtering (WRTDS_K) models for total and dissolved cadmium, zinc and lead; total phosphorus and nitrogen; and dissolved orthophosphate. The...

Oil and gas development potential in the US Intermountain West

Holly E Copeland, Kevin E Doherty, David E Naugle, Amy Pocewicz & Joseph M Kiesecker
We created a probabilistic classification model using the nonparametric machine learning technique 'Random Forests' for oil and gas development potential from low (0) to high (1) across the western US. The six predictor variables used in the model were: geophysical data showing aeromagnetic, isostatic gravity, and Bouguer gravity anomalies, geology, topography and bedrock depth. Our binary response variable was geospatial point data on producing and non-producing oil and gas wells. Our estimates provide insights into...

Landsat Burned Area Essential Climate Variable products for the conterminous United States (1984 -2015)

Todd J. Hawbaker, Melanie K. Vanderhoof, Yen-Ju G. Beal, Joshua Takacs, Gail L. Schmidt, Jeff T. Falgout, Brad Williams, Nicole M. Brunner, Megan K. Caldwell, Joshua J. Picotte, Stephen M. Howard, Susan Stitt & John L. Dwyer
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has developed and implemented an automated algorithm that identifies burned areas in temporally-dense time series of Landsat image stacks to produce the Landsat Burned Area Essential Climate Variable (BAECV) products. The algorithm makes use of predictors derived from individual Landsat scenes, lagged reference conditions, and change metrics between the scene and reference predictors. Outputs of the BAECV algorithm consist of burn probabilities for each Landsat scene, and annual composites of:...

Mineral Regions, Mines and Mineral Occurrences in the Carlin Area, Nevada

Meredith H. Burger, Jesse D. Bellora, Greg L. Fernette & Carma A. San Juan
Sediment hosted gold deposits in Nevada were first mined in the 1960s from open pit mines with large tonnage and low grade resources. Since that time, continuing exploration and discovery have identified extraordinary resources, and together these deposits now form the second-largest gold endowment on Earth, surpassed only by the Witwatersrand Gold Fields of South Africa. The data herein are part of a larger U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) project to develop an updated geospatial database...

FishTail, Indices and Supporting Data Characterizing the Current and Future Risk to Fish Habitat Degradation in the Northeast Climate Science Center Region

Wesley M. Daniel, Nick Sievert, Dana M. Infante, Craig Paukert, Jana S. Stewart, Joanna Whittier & Kyle Herreman
Human impacts occurring throughout the Northeast and Midwest United States, including urbanization, agriculture, and dams, have multiple effects on the regions streams which support economically valuable stream fishes. Changes in climate are expected to lead to additional impacts in stream habitats and fish assemblages in multiple ways, including changing stream water temperatures. To manage streams for current impacts and future changes, managers need region-wide information for decision-making and developing proactive management strategies. Our project met...

Data for herpetofaunal inventories of the national parks of South Florida and the Caribbean: Volume III, Big Cypress National Preserve

Brian M Jeffery, Kenneth G Rice, Marquette E Crockett, J. Hardin Waddle & H Franklin Percival
The Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) requires the use of ecological indicators to measure the success of restoration efforts. The Everglades amphibian community is ideal because amphibians are present in all habitats and under all hydrologic regimes. During Everglades restoration, hydrologic patterns will change and the response of ecological indicators will determine success. Fourteen amphibian species were detected through VES, vocalization surveys and trapping methods throughout the study and the occurrence information collected in this...

Human-associated indicator bacteria and human specific virus loads, sample volumes, and drainage areas for six Menomonee River Watershed sampling locations

Peter Lenaker, Steven Corsi, Hayley A. Templar, Sandra L. McLellan, Mark A. Borchardt, Deb K. Dila, Susan K. Spencer & Austin K. Baldwin
Human-associated indicator bacteria and human specific viruses in the Menomonee River watershed in Milwaukee, WI were investigated from April 2009 to March 2011 at six sampling locations within the watershed. We used concentration and water volume data from runoff-event and low-flow periods to compute loads for each sample collected, and subsequently used those loads, and drainage area from each defined sub-watershed, to compute yield contributions of human-associated bacteria and human specific viruses for each of...

Bathymetry and topography data from the Elwha River delta, Washington, May 2011

Andrew Stevens, Guy Gelfenbaum, , Ian M. Miller & Heather M. Weiner
Two dams on the Elwha River, Washington State, USA trapped over 20 million cubic meters of sediment, reducing downstream sediment fluxes and contributing to erosion of the river's coastal delta. The removal of the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams between 2011 and 2014 induced massive increases in river sediment supply and provided an unprecedented opportunity to examine the response of a delta system to changes in sediment supply. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) developed an...
