The USGS Great Lakes Science Center will use ScienceBase to manage information, including archival science records, select data sets, citations for possible dissemination and sharing via web feeds. Advancing scientific knowledge and providing scientific information for restoring, enhancing, managing, and protecting the living resources and their habitats in the Great Lakes basin ecosystem. More information available at:
The Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center 's mission is to provide scientific understanding and the technology needed to support sound management and conservation of our nation's natural resources, with emphasis on western ecosystems. The scientists from FRESC capitalize on their diverse expertise to answer critically important scientific questions shaped by the equally diverse environments of the western United States. FRESC scientists collaborate with each other and with partners to provide rigorous, objective, and timely information and guidance for the management and conservation of biological systems in the West and worldwide. Research activities are concentrated in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada,...
Exploring ecosystem services in the Powder River Basin, Wyoming.
A Virtual Catalog for storing WyGISC harvested items.
LANDFIRE, also known as the Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools Program, is a vegetation, fire, and fuel characteristic mapping program managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service and the U.S. Department of the Interior. LANDFIRE represents the first, and only, complete, nationally consistent collection of spatial resource datasets with an ecological foundation that can be used across multiple disciplines. LANDFIRE data products are primarily designed and developed to be used at the landscape level to facilitate national and regional strategic planning and reporting of wild land fire and other natural resource management activities. However, LANDFIRE’s spatially comprehensive dataset...
Welcome to the USGS Pacific Islands Water Science Center’s (PIWSC) catalog and repository space. The purpose of this space is to make available datasets and data products, and to establish linkages to associated publications. The mission of the USGS Pacific Islands Water Science Center is to provide reliable and impartial scientific information needed to understand the quantity and quality of water resources in Hawaii and U.S. affiliated Pacific Islands. To learn more about PIWSC information and data products, visit our web site at
The Geologic Hazards Science Center is located in Golden, Colorado, on the Colorado School of Mines campus. The Science Center works in the following four programs: - Earthquake Hazards Program - Landslide Hazards Program - Geomagnetism Program - Global Seismographic Network
ScienceBase Global context providing access to all items ScienceBase provides a data cataloging and collaborative data management platform for USGS scientists and partners. ScienceBase provides a central search and discovery application along with Web services that facilitate other applications. Research communities can set up their own virtual spaces that contain items of particular import to their work. Items are added to the ScienceBase Catalog through one of several methods: Harvesting engines access other catalogs or more simple listings of data resources and integrate them into ScienceBase by analyzing core elements needed for query and contextualization. Authorized users enter new items by...
The Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center (NPWRC) conducts integrated research to fulfill the Department of the Interior’s responsibilities to the Nation’s natural resources. Located on 600 acres along the James River Valley near Jamestown, North Dakota, the NPWRC develops and disseminates scientific information needed to understand, conserve, and wisely manage the Nation’s biological resources. Research emphasis is primarily on midcontinental plant and animal species and ecosystems of the United States.
OBIS-USA provides integrated data for marine biological observations aligned with the Darwin Core standard.
Description of the community and its mission: Through the Science Support Partnership (SSP) Program, the U.S. Geological Survey partners with the Fish and Wildlife Service to understand and provide the critical science information required to effectively manage our nation’s resources.
Our objective is to improve the scientific understanding of the modes, rates, and mechanisms of carbon stabilization and losses in soils from Alaska, California, and other Western states. We focus on the biophysical and microbial mechanisms that drive carbon gains and losses, and to use our data to improve models of soil carbon cycling. This catalog supports research from several projects focused on soil carbon cycling. It encompasses multiple types of datasets including environmental, ecological, biological, isotopic, mineralogical, genomic, flux, and modeled data from water, vegetation, soil, and atmospheric matrices. The catalog will be available online and to the public. Therefore, publication of data through...
The Science Framework for the Conservation and Restoration Strategy of the Sagebrush Biome provides a strategic, multiscale approach for prioritizing areas for management and determining effective management strategies across the sagebrush biome. It includes: A six step process linking information on sagebrush ecosystem resilience to species habitat requirements An assessment of the predominant ecosystem and anthropogenic threats Decision tools including a habitat matrix to aid in determining project areas and appropriate management actions at multiple scales Geospatial data, maps and models provided through the U.S. Geological Survey ScienceBase and BLM Landscape Approach Data Portal to support future assessments...
The USGS Land Remote Sensing Program has established a long-term study to better understand the users, uses, and value of Landsat satellite imagery. The current Landsat satellites provide high-quality, multi-spectral, moderate-resolution imagery of all areas of the world. This imagery is applied in a variety of applications, such as global climate change, environmental management, and planning and development. Landsat imagery is unique among current satellite imagery due to an archive of free global imagery collected continuously since 1972. More than 20 million Landsat scenes have been downloaded, the vast majority since a no-cost data policy was put into place in 2008. The Fort Collins Science Center’s Social...
In response to indications of worldwide declines in amphibian populations, the President and Congress directed Interior Department agencies to initiate a national program of amphibian monitoring, research, and conservation. There is an urgent need to determine the scope and severity of the problem and to investigate causes. The U.S. Geological Survey is uniquely qualified to coordinate and lead a cooperative national effort because its scientists have been in the forefront of studying amphibian populations and life history traits, measuring and monitoring environmental characteristics, and conducting research into potential causes of decline. As a result, the Agency formed the National Amphibian Research and Monitoring...
Flood is the most devastating of all natural disasters, leading to both human fatalities and economic losses worth billions of dollars every year. Flood inundation maps play a key role in mitigating flood related losses by indicating areas that are vulnerable to floods. However, the conventional approach to creating flood maps using hydraulic modeling is resource extensive, and cannot be applied easily in rural data sparse regions in the United States (U.S.). An alternative way to produce floodplain maps is proposed in Sangwan and Merwade (2015), which uses easily accessible gSSURGO soil data to produce floodplain maps for larger regions. This community aims at providing national scale floodplain map for the entire...
