USGS - science for a changing world

Communications and Information Management

This database is the result of an extensive literature search aimed at identifying documents relevant to the emerging field of dam removal science. In total the database contains 179 citations that contain empirical monitoring information associated with 130 different dam removals across the United States and abroad. Data includes publications through 2014 and supplemented with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers National Inventory of Dams database, U.S. Geological Survey National Water Information System and aerial photos to estimate locations when coordinates were not provided. Publications were located using the Web of Science, Google Scholar, and Clearinghouse for Dam Removal Information.

This is an archival data set of residue levels of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), brominated flame retardants (BFRs), chlorothalonil fungicide, dacthal herbicide and dimethyl tetrachlorophthalate isomer in whole-egg samples collected from osprey nests on the Spokane River and reference lakes, Washington, 2009. It also includes information about the productivity of the ospreys involved in the sampling.

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
