Our country faces a wide array of natural hazards that threaten its safety, security, economic well-being, and natural resources. To minimize future losses, communities need a clear understanding of how they are vulnerable to natural hazards and of strategies for increasing their resilience. Vulnerability and resilience are influenced by (1) how communities choose to use hazard-prone land, (2) pre-existing socioeconomic conditions, (3) likely future patterns of land change, and (4) current efforts to reduce and manage risks. The objective of this project is to develop new ways of assessing and communicating community vulnerability and resilience to natural hazards. This work supports core elements of the USGS mission...
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...
The AMMonitor community is a collaboration of remote wildlife monitoring projects whose media data (audio, photos, and video and their metadata) comprise a repository for use in (1) ongoing adaptive management and research of wildlife, and (2) the development of new predictive models, via machine learning, for the automated identification of target species from media. Each collaborating project uses the AMMonitor R package and database structure for pooling data under a unifying framework that meets high quality standards for rich metadata. Each project exists as a child-item of this ScienceBase community, containing metadata about the project itself. These project items contain media folders as children, which...
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.

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 USGS is working in partnership with California and federal agencies to answer the following questions about oil and gas development and groundwater resources: Where are protected groundwater resources? How close are oil and gas operations and protected groundwater, and what geologic materials separate them? Where is there evidence of fluids from oil and gas sources in protected groundwater? Where does evidence indicate no connections? When fluids from oil and gas sources are present in protected groundwater, what pathways or processes are responsible for observed transport? Have oil and gas operations as a whole contributed to water-quality changes in groundwater basins?
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. CAWSC Web site: http://ca.water.usgs.gov/
This is a catalog of datasets available for processing with the Geo Data Portal.
Summary ECO Opps is a tool used to gather and manage documents related to proposal solicitations. Please find relevant help documents attached below. Access Eco Opps here: For technical help with ECO Opps, please contact Gail Montgomery at montgomeryg@usgs.gov ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A Note to Project Teams and Reviewers: Please log in to ECO Opps at least 24 hours before you are ready to submit your project, statement of interest, proposal, or review. New external (non-Department of the Interior) users will need to go through a new account approval process that can experience lag times up to 24 hours. Existing external (non-DOI)...
The National Water Census is a USGS research program on national water availability and use that develops new water accounting tools and assesses water availability at the regional and national scales. Through the Water Census, USGS is integrating diverse research on water availability and use and enhancing the understanding of connection between water quality and water availability. Research is designed to build decision support capacity for water management agencies and other natural resource managers. It is one of six major science directions identified by the USGS in its 2007 Science Plan and is called for in the SECURE Water Act and implemented through the Department of the Interior WaterSMART initiative. That...
