The U.S. Geological Survey deployed seven submersible pressure transducers on the bottom of the Salcha River in July 2018. An additional transducer was left out of the water to correct for barometric pressure fluctuations. At the time of deployment, the bank position near each transducer and the water-surface elevation were measured with Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) equipment. The transducers recorded a depth measurement every 15-min until the recovery of five of the seven in October. We adjusted the water elevation measured at deployment by the difference between the depth measured at deployment and each subsequent depth measurement to derive the water-surface elevation at 15-min intervals. The data...

Welcome to the Rocky Mountain Avian Data Center! Here you can find information resulting from a wide variety of surveys conducted by RMBO and its partners. Users can query out count data, occupancy results, density results, and generate maps of survey locations. You may want to read the Usage Tips for information and tips on running queries. If you’re a manager and wondering how you might be able to use this information please visit our Using Estimates page for more information. The Rocky Mountain Avian Data Center is designed to provide information for specific questions and therefore works best when users select multiple filters for a query.
This is a protocol that seeks to protect a federally recognized American Indian tribe’s intellectual property (IP) and traditional knowledge (TK) from unapproved usage, while securing a process through which research ed information can be effectively obtained and disseminated. While acknowledging that each American Indian community may vary regarding its own unique protocol practices, the following document covers four sets of principles and issues which are over-arching recommendations for developing positive communications and collaborative research relationships between a tribe(s) and researchers funded by federal and/or state agencies. Illustrative case examples will be provided throughout this document that...
Based upon the research developed in association with the Sqigwts NKN Climate Change project, this document provides recommendations on how to design inter - actable food producing “Gardens” (the term defined later in this document), with appropriate Indigenous content and pedagogical considerations relating to climate change. The Garden could be used by the Tribe at their discretion to identify, protect and perpetuate the use and locations of traditional, native plants used in the traditional seasonal round . It seeks to demonstrate that both indigenous and sc ientific knowledge can be successfully applied in this endeavor. It seeks to be an educational venue for students and their teachers, and to be a sustainable...

This USGS Data Release represents Soil-Water Balance (SWB) groundwater infiltration modeling results for the Lower Colorado River Basin (LCRB). The data release was produced in compliance with 'open data' requirements as a way to make the scientific data associated with USGS research efforts and publications available to the public. There are 3 separate datasets associated with this Data Release: SWB model results from simulations run using projected climate data, summarized by month from 1950 through 2099, for the LCRB within the United States SWB model results from simulations run using projected climate data, summarized by month from 1950 through 2099, for the Grand Canyon region SWB model results from simulations...

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Natural Resources Department of the Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Chippewa Tribe, conducted a study of the extent of flooding near the community of Odanah, Wisconsin, caused by the July 11, 2016 storm event in northern Wisconsin and the Bad River Reservation. Immediately after the flooding, the USGS and the Bad River Natural Resources Department documented 108 high-water marks (HWM) in the Odanah area. The HWMs were used to create flood-inundation maps to support the response and recovery operations. Three sets of flood-inundation polygon boundaries, flood-inundation extents, flood depths, and high-water marks were compiled for the Bad River, Beartrap...

Censored and uncensored generalized additive models (GAMs) are developed from 955 U.S. Geological Survey streamflow-gaging stations (streamgages) to predict decadal statistics of streamflow. The streamgages are located on streams draining to the Gulf of Mexico. Decadal statistics include no-flow fractions and selected L-moments of nonzero streamflow for six decades (1950s—2000s). These statistics represent metrics of decadal flow-duration curves (dFDCs) derived from about 10 million daily mean streamflows. The L-moments include the mean, coefficient of L-variation, and the third through fifth L-moment ratios. The models are fit using watershed properties such as basin area and slope, decadal precipitation and temperature...

Twenty one submersible pressure transducers were deployed along the Green River near Jensen Utah in late February 2018. At some locations two transducers were deployed at different elevations to capture the expected range of water level fluctuations, an "upper" and "lower" transducer. Two additional transducers were left out of the water to correct for barometric pressure fluctuations. At the time of deployment, the position of a reference point located on a t-post to which each transducer was mounted was measured with real-time kinematic GPS equipment. In addition, a tape down or the distance between the reference point to the water surface was recorded.The transducers collected a depth measurement every 15 minutes...

Improved Gulf Hypoxia Planning Tool: Landscape scale planning tools focus conservation priorities through a series of region-specific lenses. These tools include: CHAT; SECAS; Gulf Hypoxia Initiative - Precision Conservation Blueprint v1.5; and landscape designs developed by the Great Plains LCC and Gulf Coast Prairie LCC. Discussions with industry, agency and organizational leaders across the mid-continent suggest that the time is ripe for opening a dialogue about how to bridge the planning between the west and east to find the appropriate stakeholder-driven set of mid-continent connections for a network of lands and waters. The recipient will assist staff from multiple LCCs and other interested entities in setting...

The Northeast United States and Atlantic Canada share many of the same types of forests, wetlands, and natural communities, and from a wildlife perspective the region is one contiguous forest. However, resources are classified and mapped differently on each side of the border, which creates challenges for habitat evaluation, species modeling, and predicting the effects of climate change. To remedy this, ecologists from The Nature Conservancy collaborated with a committee of scientists from various Canadian institutions to produce the first international map of terrestrial habitats for northeastern North America. The project used extensive spatial data on geology, soils, landforms, wetlands, elevation and climate....

This product is a collection of digital data that document fault rupture and ground-deformation features produced by the Ridgecrest M6.4 and M7.1 earthquake sequence of July 4 and 5, 2019. These datasets are described and more fully discussed in Ponti and others (2020) (see External Resources Section below for the full reference). Included in this collection are: GIS Shapefile and KMZ file of field-verified fault rupture and ground deformation features from direct field mapping, or interpreted from ground observations, airborne and satellite optical imagery, digital surface models derived from lidar and structure-from-motion optical image analysis, sub-pixel correlation of multi-temporal optical imagery, and phase...
