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.
The Columbia Environmental Research Center (CERC) is a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) environmental science research facility located in Columbia, Missouri, USA. CERC conducts national and international environmental contaminant research and investigates effects of habitat alterations on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
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,...
This ScienceBase community represents ReSciColl (Registry of Scientific Collections), formerly the National Digital Catalog, of the National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program (NGGDPP). ReSciColl includes metadata records describing geological, geophysical and biological collections and data managed by state geological surveys and USGS. These collections include rock samples, thin sections, field notebooks, photographs, maps, datasets, and others. Collections are described using metadata elements identified by the NGGDPP as important for discovering, understanding, accessing, and using physical collections. Contact and access information is provided for collections and individual samples to enable...
The St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center is one of three science centers that conduct research within the USGS Coastal and Marine Hazards Research Program. The USGS St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center has a primary focus of investigating processes related to coastal and marine environments and their societal implications related to natural hazards, resource sustainability, and environmental change.
The Benthic Lab investigates the benthic community throughout the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento Delta.
Supporting data for and predictions from streamflow permanence modeling in Mt. Rainier National Park and surrounding area, Washington, 2018-2020
This data release contains spatially gridded geospatial data (rasters), R scripts, and supporting files to run Random Forest models to predict the probability of late summer surface flow in Mt. Rainier and surrounding area in Washington State for 2018–20. Gridded geospatial data that describes the physical conditions of Mt. Rainier National Park and surrounding area are used to refine the existing PRObability of Streamflow PERmanence (PROSPER) model (Jaeger and others, 2019). All data processing and analysis were scripted with R (version 4.0.4; https://www.r-project.org/) and was executed from the RStudio GUI (version 1.4.1103; https://www.rstudio.com/). R scripts to prepare the geospatial data, develop random forest...
The vision of the Eastern Ecological Science Center (EESC) is to be recognized as a world leader in fish, wildlife and associated ecosystem science through scientific excellence and responsiveness to society’s needs. Through the combined, varied expertise of the scientists from the Leetown Science Center and the Patuxent Wildlife Researcher Center, the EESC is well-positioned to address increasingly complex ecosystem-level management challenges natural resource managers are facing to conserve, manage, and restore fish and wildlife, that have historically been addressed through traditional single-species management approaches. Our center’s scientific expertise that can address a wide range of aquatic and terrestrial...
The North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat) community in ScienceBase is an application developed to support a multi-national, multi-agency coordinated bat monitoring program across North America. The overall NABat effort provides the biological, administrative, and statistical architecture for coordinated bat population monitoring to support regional and range-wide inferences about changes in the distributions and abundances of bat populations facing current and emerging threats.

Cataloging data and publications for projects associated Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center (UMESC).
A data and code repository for studies conducted as part of the Delaware River Basin (DRB) Integrated Water Availability Assessments program. The community serves as a site where hydrologic, physical, chemical, biological, and landscape data can be stored and used for modeling and geospatial analysis to improved understanding of water availability in the DRB.
