The Integrated Watershed Studies Team is a multidisciplinary group of scientists who carry out collaborative investigations of water chemistry at varying spatial scales. The team integrates physical, chemical, and biological data by applying models and spatial geographic data to quantify the role of hydrological and biogeochemical processes on the chemical evolution of surface water and groundwater. This group is part of the National Water Quality Assessment Project of the U.S. Geological Survey.
This is the USGS California Water Science Center's Catalog and Repository space. This space primarily supports CAWSC science projects by providing a place to organize and publicly release data which cannot fit within the USGS's National Water Information System. The CAWSC mission is to collect, analyze and disseminate impartial hydrologic data and information needed to wisely manage water resources for the people of the United States and the State of California.
