We obtained statewide spatially explicit gridded soil survey data for Nebraska from the Soil Survey Geographic (SSURGO) database. The ‘chorizon,’ ‘chtexture,’ ‘chtexturegrp,’ ‘mapunit,’ and ‘mutext’ tables in the Gridded SSURGO database were joined together using the “mukey” attribute field in a geographic information system (GIS). The representative values for slope (rvslope) and slope length (rvslopelenusle), the susceptibility of the soil to water erosion (Kw), and the soil loss tolerance (t_fact) values were obtained from the set of joined tables and were included in the Water Erosion Index calculation. We acquired county-specific rainfall and runoff factor values (R) from the U.S. Department ofAgriculture’s...

The Central Platte River Image Library is an extensive dataset of historic 1860's surveys by the Government Land Office and aerial photographs from 1938-2012. All datasets are either public domain property of the U.S. Government or published by the Rainwater Basin Joint Venture (RWBJV) with permission from the respective owner (specifically the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program or Central Platte Natural Resources District). The Central Platte River region of Nebraska extends from approximately Jeffery Reservoir (Western Extent) to Columbus (Eastern Extent). The library was completed May 2014 - Sept 2016 by the Rainwater Basin Joint Venture.

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.
