This map layer includes miscellaneous industrial minerals operations in the United States. The data represent commodities covered by the Minerals Information Team (MIT) of the U.S. Geological Survey. The mineral operations are plants and (or) mines surveyed by the MIT and considered currently active in 2003. This is a replacement for the July 2004 map layer.

This dataset represents salt marsh communities in the Northeast Atlantic coast. The classification was produced using a combination of Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) multispectral imagery. This dataset combined with "Tidal Marsh Vegetation Classification, no DEM, 3m, Northeast U.S." provides a contiguous classification of tidal marsh cover types from coastal Maine to Virginia. The eight distinct cover/community types identified are: High marsh: Area flooded during spring tides related to the lunar cycle and dominated by Spartina patens, Distichlis spicata, Juncus gerardii, and short form Spartina alterniflora. Other species include Juncus roemerianus, Scirpus pungens,...

This dataset represents salt marsh communities in the Northeast Atlantic coast. The classification was produced using National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) multispectral imagery for areas where no DEM was available to complete the full classification. This dataset combined with "Tidal Marsh Vegetation Classification, DEM, Northeast U.S." provides a contiguous classification of tidal marsh cover types from coastal Maine to Virginia. The six distinct cover/community types identified are: 1. High marsh: Area flooded during spring tides related to the lunar cycle and dominated by Spartina patens, Distichlis spicata, Juncus gerardii, and short form Spartina alterniflora. Other species include Juncus roemerianus,...
Bromus tectorum L. is a non-native, annual grass that has invaded western North America. In SE Utah, B. tectorum generally occurs in grasslands dominated by the native perennial grass, Hilaria jamesii (Torr.) Benth. and rarely where the natives Stipa hymenoides Roem. and Schult. and S. comata Trin. & Rupr. are dominant. This patchy invasion is likely due to differences in soil chemistry. Previous laboratory experiments investigated using soil amendments that would allow B. tectorum to germinate but would reduce B. tectorum emergence without affecting H. jamesii. For this study we selected the most successful treatments (CaCl2, MgCl2, NaCl and zeolite) from a previous laboratory study and applied them in the field...

The Eagle quadrangle covers an area that straddles the Eagle River and Interstate 70 (I-70) and it includes the town of Eagle, Colo., which is located in the southwestern part of the quadrangle, just south of I-70 and the Eagle River, about 37 km west of Vail, Colo. The map area is part of the I-70 urban corridor, which is experiencing rapid and escalating urban growth. Geologic mapping along this corridor is needed for ongoing land-use planning. A variety of rocks and deposits characterize the map area and areas nearby. Sedimentary rocks present in the map area range in age from Pennsylvanian rocks, which were deposited in the ancestral Eagle basin during the formation of the ancestral Rocky Mountains, to Late...

This data set includes mineral and metal operations in the United States. The data represent commodities monitored by the National Minerals Information Center of the USGS, and the operations included are those considered active in 2003 and surveyed by the MIT. Additional mineral and metal operations information can be obtained from the U.S. Geological Survey National Minerals Information Center web page at: <http://minerals.usgs.gov/minerals/>

Three types of data (one with an elevation model (DEM), one without a DEM, and one indicating the difference) are provided for the entire Northeast region and by analysis zone (n=8). Tidal Marsh Vegetation Classification, DEM, 3m, Northeast U.S. – contains a regional classification produced using a combination of Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP) multispectral imagery. All eight cover types are included in this classification. This dataset combined with “Tidal Marsh Vegetation Classification, DEM, 3m, Northeast U.S” provides a contiguous classification of tidal marsh cover types from coastal Maine to Virginia. The eight cover types include: High marsh: Area flooded during...

This data set consists of records for over 900 mineral facilities in Latin America and Canada. The mineral facilities include mines, plants, smelters, or refineries of aluminum, cement, coal, copper, diamond, gold, iron and steel, nickel, platinum-group metals, salt, and silver, among others. Records include attributes such as commodity, country, location, company name, facility type and capacity if applicable, and generalized coordinates. The data were compiled from multiple sources, including the 2003 and 2004 USGS Minerals Yearbooks (Latin America and Candada volume), data to be published in the 2005 Minerals Yearbook Latin America and Canada Volume, minerals statistics and information from the USGS minerals...

This dataset represents a combined file indicating where a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) was and was not used in the tidal marsh classifications "Tidal Marsh Vegetation Classification, DEM, 3m, Northeast U.S." and "Tidal Marsh Vegetation Classification, no DEM, 3m, Northeast U.S.". For more information about the development of the data please contact Mo Correll at Maureen.correll@maine.edu. "Tidal Marsh Vegetation Classification, DEM, 3m, Northeast U.S.", "Tidal Marsh Vegetation Classification, no DEM, 3m, Northeast U.S.", and "DEM Difference in Tidal Marsh Vegetation Classification, 3m, Northeast U.S." are products of the Saltmarsh Habitat and Avian Research Program (www.tidalmarshbirds.org).

The presence of salt water is an important determinant of ecoloical communities. This dataset modifies the Northeast Terrestrial Habitat Map (http://www.conservationgateway.org/ConservationByGeography/NorthAmerica/UnitedStates/edc/reportsdata/terrestrial/habitatmap/Pages/default.aspx) developed by The Nature Conservancy to denote the presence of salt water or brackish water as follows: -Wetlands and waters classified by the National Wetland Inventory (http://www.fws.gov/wetlands/) as "marine", plus additional ocean waters to a distance from the coast of 10 km, are considered salt water and assigned a value of "1" -Wetlands and waters classified by the National Wetland Inventory as "upper estuarine" are considered...
