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,...
Ecoregions denote areas of general similarity in ecosystems and in the type, quality, and quantity of environmental resources. They are designed to serve as a spatial framework for the research, assessment, management, and monitoring of ecosystems and ecosystem components. These general purpose regions are critical for structuring and implementing ecosystem management strategies across federal agencies, state agencies, and nongovernment organizations that are responsible for different types of resources within the same geographical areas. The approach used to compile this map is based on the premise that ecological regions can be identified through the analysis of patterns of biotic and abiotic phenomena, including...
Problem Potential offsite impacts to public and ecosystem health from exposure to current-use pesticides and other organic contaminants are a growing concern in Hawaiʻi. In response to these concerns, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the State of Hawaiʻi Department of Agriculture (HDOA), initiated a comprehensive pesticide-monitoring program of surface water in Hawaiʻi in 2016. The State of Hawaiʻi Department of Health (HDOH) is collaborating by providing technical and scientific assistance. Objectives The objectives of the Hawaiʻi pesticide-monitoring program include (1) documenting the occurrence and distribution of current-use pesticides in surface water of geographically distinct agricultural...

Federal Program Assistance to Nature-Deprived Communities
The introduction of exotic plant species into the western United States has caused substantial changes to rangeland disturbance regimes and ecosystem structure and function. For example, exotic annual grass (EAG) invasion in western rangelands has increased wildfire frequency, which greatly reduces rangeland ecosystem diversity and leads to single-species dominance in many areas. Rangeland monocultures do not provide optimal carbon sequestration and other environmental processes necessary to sustain historically normal ecosystem structure, including the ecological diversity needed to support sagebrush obligates like Greater Sagegrouse, pygmy rabbit, and pronghorn. These obligates, as well as others, require contiguous,...
Earthquake-triggered ground-failure, such as landsliding and liquefaction, can contribute significantly to losses, but our current ability to accurately include them in earthquake hazard analyses is limited. The development of robust and transportable models requires access to numerous inventories of ground failure triggered by earthquakes that span a broad range of terrains, shaking characteristics, and climates. We present an openly accessible, centralized earthquake-triggered ground-failure inventory repository in the form of a ScienceBase Community to provide open access to these data, and help accelerate progress. The Community hosts digital inventories created by both USGS and non-USGS authors. We present...
U.S. Geological Survey - ShakeCast: a ShakeMap Response Automation System ShakeCast is an application that automatically retrieves ShakeMap data and distributes notifications and assessments to key personnel. ShakeMap scenarios can be found sorted by category within the 'Collections' tab.

THIS IS A HISTORICAL RECORD. As of December 17, 2021, the BISON application will no longer be available online and has been replaced by The BISON APIs are still available at and the Integrated Publishing Toolkit is still available at The USGS Biodiversity Information Serving Our Nation (BISON) project is an online all-species mapping information system consisting of a large collection of species occurrence datasets (e.g., plants and animals) found in the United States, U.S. Territories, U.S. marine Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ), and Canada, with relevant geospatial layers. Species occurrences are records of organisms at a particular...

This is an experimental catalog of 3D image representations of scientific samples. Items within the collection document an individual sample such as a rock or mineral sample. Items use the open standard Binary glTF (GL Transmission Format; "GLB") for the 3D data along with a JSON scene file that is part of the Smithsonian's Voyager Explorer framework. These files are stored in the ScienceBase public cloud bucket to support the type of HTTP interaction needed by web-based browsing application.

Our mission is to collect timely and reliable information on the water resources of our six-state region (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont), and to partner with Federal, State, Tribal, and local agencies in hydrologic studies that advance human health, public safety, and environmental sustainability.
The National Science Foundation Ice Core Facility (NSF-ICF) - formerly the U.S. National Ice Core Laboratory (NICL) - is a facility for storing, curating, and studying meteoric ice cores recovered from glaciated regions of the world. NSF-ICF provides scientists with the capability to conduct examinations and measurements on ice cores, and it preserves the integrity of these ice cores in a long-term repository for current and future investigations.
The Minute 319/323 ScienceBase community exists to share data regarding the 2014 pulse flow experiment in the Colorado River delta. Some content, such as provisional data, is not publicly available. Please contact Jeff Kennedy ( for access.
Data resources of the USGS Chesapeake Bay Activities The Chesapeake Bay is our Nation's largest estuary, and the continued restoration and protection of this national resource is a priority for designated Federal and State agencies, and nongovernmental stakeholders through the Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP). Given the ecologic and economic importance of the Chesapeake Bay, President Obama issued an Executive order for increased Federal leadership to restore and protect the Bay and its watershed. The USGS has the critical role to provide scientific information for the improved understanding and management of the Bay ecosystem. The USGS works with Federal, State, and academic science partners to provide research, assessment,...
State Wildlife Action Plans (SWAPs) are assessments of the wildlife and habitats in need of conservation action by each state. Congress mandated the states create SWAPs every ten years beginning in 2005 and are the way states receive funding from the Wildlife Conservation and Restoration Program and the State Wildlife Grants Program. Each SWAP contains a list of Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) as determined by that state. USGS was asked by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA) to integrate the SGCN lists into a national list to see a national picture of SGCNs. Guide to collection contents Items in the collection with titles and dates for 2005 come from a process that examined each State...
