The USGS National Elevation Dataset (NED) has been developed by merging the highest-resolution, best quality elevation data available across the United States into a seamless raster format. NED is the result of the maturation of the USGS effort to provide 1:24,000-scale Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data for the conterminous US and 1:63,360-scale DEM data for Alaska. The dataset provides seamless coverage of the United States, HI, AK, and the island territories. NED has a consistent projection (Geographic), resolution (1 arc second), and elevation units (meters). The horizontal datum is NAD83, except for AK, which is NAD27. The vertical datum is NAVD88, except for AK, which is NAVD29. NED is a living dataset that...

This website provides access to active links for data collected at the Santa Rita Experimental Range. Included in the links are access to shapefiles, excel files, raster and other forms of data on precipitation, vegetation, animals and other subjects.
Patterns displayed by climate forcings and hydrologic responses may be overlooked at a local scale and the co-variation of precipitation, temperature and other atmospheric conditions may not be evident until viewed from a regional spatial scale. The appraisal and management of the Nation's water resources requires the extraction of as much order and predictability from hydro-climate data as possible and thus requires a regional perspective. Temporal climate variations result from a wide range of physical, chemical, and biological processes, including chaotic or near-chaotic fluid dynamics, complex radiative and thermodynamic processes, tropical/extra-tropical interactions, ocean-air interactions, and the responses...

The UYRW is undergoing increasing land and water development to support growing municipal, industrial, and recreational needs. As development proceeds, there is the potential for short- and long-term changes in the quantity and quality of surface-water and groundwater resources. Water-quality data currently are stored in disparate formats among numerous Federal, State, and local agencies, private consulting firms, universities, and stakeholder groups. Development of a publically-accessible water-quality database (Data Repository) standardizes and unifies data from the numerous sources. These data can be used to assess water quality in the UYRW and develop a water-quality monitoring plan by identifying data gaps...
Faced with the complexities and growing urgency of natural resource issues, land and resource managers struggle to obtain information that is accurate, current, and usable. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Fort Collins Science Center (FORT) fulfills this need by providing sound scientific data and technical assistance to Department of the Interior bureaus and other natural resource agencies. Located at several sites throughout the USGS Central Region, our research and support staff of over 150 works closely with other federal and state/territorial agencies, universities, and private organizations to generate science products and services relevant to clients’ needs. These include research reports and journal publications,...

In this website, Colorado River Streamflow: A Paleo Perspective, we will assess the gaged record of Colorado River streamflow in the context of multi-century flow reconstructions from tree rings. We will describe the Colorado River system and its management, then the century-long gaged record of flow, and then the use of tree rings to extend, or reconstruct, the gaged record 400 years or more into the past, providing a more complete picture of past flow variability. We will take a closer look at the most recent streamflow reconstructions for Lees Ferry, and how they compare with previous reconstructions.
The Bureau of Reclamation's Lower Colorado Region serves as the "water master" for the last 688 miles of the Colorado River within the United States on behalf of the Secretary of the Interior. We manage the River and its reservoirs to meet water and power delivery obligations, protect endangered species and native habitat, enhance outdoor recreation opportunities, and provide flood control. The Region also maintains Hoover, Davis and Parker Dams, annually measures and accounts for the water's use, and maintains the river channel and protective levees. The Lower Colorado Region covers an area of nearly 202,000 square miles, and encompasses parts of five states that contribute water to or draw water from...
The Sqigwts 3-D Landscape is an interactive three-dimensional experience developed to provide an opportunity to effectively learn about the important cultural significance of sqigwts, the water potato (Sagittaria latifolia), to the Schitsu’umsh or Coeur d’Alene Indian Tribe (of the Pacific Northwest USA). The goal is to provide information on the potential vulnerability of this species to climate change and of the Schitsu’umsh living relationship with it. Schitsu’umsh knowledge and practice is called hnkhwelkhwlnet, meaning “our ways of life in the world,” and is conveyed through acts of re-telling oral traditions and stories. For the Schitsu’umsh, storytelling is a living act and can only truly occur in-person...
