This data release contains photographs and photomicrographs from drill cores and cuttings of pre-Middle Jurassic basement rocks that are buried beneath Coastal Plain sedimentary deposits in Florida. These samples provide rare insights into deeply buried rocks that have no surface exposures and no known exposed correlates. These images were acquired to support the characterization, discrimination, and correlation of map units comprising Florida’s basement infrastructure (Deasy and others, 2024a). These are the original images. Annotated images with additional comments are available in the companion Data Report (Deasy and others, 2024b). Semi-quantitative mineral modes of many basement rocks are presented in a companion...

The National Hydrologic Geospatial Fabric Reference and Derived Hydrofabrics is a geospatial dataset used for hydrologic modeling, containing a network of connected rivers, lakes, and catchments. It consists of four different network representations: Reference Fabric, Refactored Fabric, target-size Hydrofabric, and POI Aggregated Hydrofabric. Each representation is designed to meet specific modeling needs by providing different levels of consolidation and aggregation of the hydrographic features. The dataset includes features and attributes representing hydrologic locations associated with observational data, cataloging, or reporting water data quantity or quality, and structures important to the storage and conveyance...
The Bluestone sculpin (Cottus sp.) is a priority at-risk freshwater fish endemic to the Bluestone River system in Virginia and West Virginia. The species occurs in small, cool streams with gravel and rubble dominated substrates. The taxonomic status of the Bluestone sculpin is unresolved, and its range often overlaps with congeners, with which it may hybridize. To address the conservation status of the Bluestone sculpin, taxonomic analyses are needed to fully describe the species and evaluate the level of hybridization. Additionally, comprehensive surveys and genetic analyses are needed to determine the species range and population connectivity. Locating the species using eDNA may be a viable option.

The Northeast States identified the Least Shrew as a Regional Species of Greatest Conservation Need. To advance conservation, better information is needed to determine the species distribution and conservation status within the Region. To address this need, we are working with the USGS to develop an eDNA survey protocol that will pilot efforts in Virginia and Maryland. Once the protocol is perfected, the pilot effort will be expanded to cover the species’ entire range to collect critical needed to evaluate the species’ status and infor future conservation strategies.

The Delaware River Basin Restoration Program implements conservation, stewardship, and enhancement projects in four areas: conserving and restoring fish and wildlife habitat; improving and sustaining water quality; upgrading water management, and reducing flood damage; enhancing recreational opportunities and public access.Since 2018, the Program has awarded $40.4 million to 159 projects, which generated $59.7 million in match, for a total conservation impact of $100.1 million. These projects will collectively restore over 22 miles of riparian habitat and 76 miles of stream habitat, conserve and enhance 1,322 acres of wetland habitat, restore 255 acres of floodplain, improve 27,105 acres of forest habitat and open...
Funds will be used to establish a new program for raising Chesapeake logperch at the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s Union City Hatchery. Fish will supply reintroduction and population augmentation efforts in Pennsylvania and Maryland.
New Hampshire Fish and Game will use the funds to support captive rearing of White Mountain fritillary. By raising these butterflies in captivity, conservationists will learn key life history traits, including determining suitable host plants, which will help in determining habitat availability. The captive colony will help conservationists understand demographic characteristics of the species and inform protocols for raising the species requires augmentation in the future.
Source seed is not currently available for commercial vendors to grow native thistles in sufficient quantities for restoration projects. This project will address this shortage by collecting seed of pasture thistle (Cirsium pumilum), field thistle (C. discolor) and swamp thistle (C. muticum) from locations known to regional botanists. These seeds will be provided to a seed vendor that will have them genetically validated. They will then use these seeds to produce native thistles in quantities needed for pollinator restoration projects.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) works closely with the Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) to provide information to be used by the MDOT for design of highway-drainage structures. MDOT spends millions of dollars annually for highway construction. Streamflow records, hydrologic analyses of basins, and hydraulic analyses of flooding potential at proposed highway crossings help the MDOT to make more informed decisions on the use of highway construction funding. Flood-frequency and hydraulic characteristics at highway crossings are determined from historical flood-elevation data recovered by the USGS, cross-section data, and correlations with data from nearby gaging stations. Additional streamflow data...
A mission of the Science Applications program of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is to provide a partnership where the conservation community can guide more effective conservation actions in the face of resource threats amplified by a rapidly changing climate. To accomplish this mission, critical needs exist to 1) develop scientific information and tools for conservation prioritization and decision making and 2) facilitate delivery and adoption of these science products by partners operating at multiple spatial scales with varying approaches to conservation. Extending the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) Designing Sustainable Landscape (DSL) project (McGarigal et al. 2017) sponsored by Science Applications...

The Central Appalachian Mountains is a priority area for conserving golden-winged warbler, cerulean warbler and wood thrush. Funding will be targeted to the Appalachian Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office (AFWCO) to support projects implemented by the Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program (both AFWCO and WVFO) in West Virginia that support forest songbird conservation. Work will be conducted in partnership with the West Virginia Department of Natural Resources, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Appalachian Joint Venture, and others by providing non-NRCS cost share or by funding project that don’t qualify for Farm Bill funding.
The 2023 Diana fritillary West Virginia survey is a pilot study to determine presence and absence on or near a subset ofhistoric locations within the state of West Virginia. Included properties are restricted to West Virginia Department of Natural Resources and partnering forest landowners. Two modes of presence/absence searches will be tested. The first is an opportunisticmeandering search that will be implemented when suitable habitat is observed. The second type will besearches conducted within a randomized grid with structured habitat plots. In both cases, all observedbutterflies will be recorded as points. Data was collected using ESRI Field Maps.
This project is coordinated by the Science Application’s Rapid Response Team. Surveys were initially conducted in 2022 from New Jersey to Florida and west to Louisiana.
Harrison Lake National Fish Hatchery will use at-risk species funding to support the salary for two tribal youth interns for 52 weeks, to raise three at-risk species of mussels and diadromous fishes, to monitor growth and survival in the hatchery, and assist with tagging and stocking mussels into rivers that are a priority for the State of Virginia as well as Tribes. At-risk species being raised at HLNFH are the alewife, blueback herring, brook floater, the yellow lampmussel, and the tidewater mucket. The tribal intern will also learn how to conduct host-fish suitability tests for freshwater mussels. Funding may be used to support overnight travel that could occur conducting stocking and broodstock collection activities.
