Summary

This data release is comprised of a data set that contains specific conductance and chloride concentration data in HUC-8 watersheds that intersect with areas with unconventional oil and gas plays, and a data set that contains atmospheric nitrogen deposition rates and herbaceous plant species richness values across sample sites in the USA.

Purpose

The water quality data were originally collected to evaluate water quality trends over 40 years in areas with variable amounts of activity in unconventional oil and gas extraction. The plant species richness data were obtained from numerous studies for a synthesis analysis on effects of atmospheric nitrogen deposition rates on herbaceous plant species diversity by a Powell Center Working Group, U.S. Geological Survey.
