Summary

These data were released prior to the October 1, 2016 effective date for the USGS’s policy dictating the review, approval, and release of scientific data as referenced in USGS Survey Manual Chapter 502.8 Fundamental Science Practices: Review and Approval of Scientific Data for Release. The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with The Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District (CNPPD), conducted a study that used bathymetric and topographic surveying in conjunction with Geographical Information Systems techniques to determine the 2003 physical shape and storage capacity, as well as the change in storage capacity of Lake McConaughy that occurred over 62 years. By combining the bathymetric and topographic survey data, the [...]

Purpose

This data set was collected in order to document the current bed elevations throughout the reservoir in order to determine current storage capacity and to compare that to historic storage capacity. The data set consists of bathymetric elevation points derived from x,y,z hydrographic survey data and GPS data collected in the winter of 2002 and spring of 2003 by the U.S. Geological Survey along 123 transects covering the reservoir.
