Bear Lake is a tectonic lake that has existed for at least several hundred thousand years. The lake basin is a relatively simple half graben, a spoon-shaped depression tilted toward the main fault on the east side of the lake. The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with researchers from several universities, has been studying the sediments of Bear Lake since 1996. The general purpose of this effort is to reconstruct past limnological conditions and regional climate on a range of timescales, from hundreds of years to hundreds of thousands of years. This research relates to a variety of human concerns, including water usage in the Bear River basin. Past work has included several coring operations, a seismic-reflection...

This data set contains the sea floor topographic contours,sun-illuminated topographic imagery, and backscatterintensity generated from a multibeam sonar survey of theStellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary region off Boston,Massachusetts, an area of approximately 1100 square nauticalmiles. The Stellwagen Bank NMS Mapping Project is designed toprovide detailed maps of the Stellwagen Bank region'senvironments and habitats and the first complete multibeamtopographic and sea floor characterization maps of asignificant region of the shallow EEZ.Data were collected on four cruises over atwo year period from the fall of 1994 to the fall of 1996.The surveys were conducted aboard the Candian HydrographicService vessel...

The accompanying dataset was produced as part of a project funded under NASA’s Terrestrial Ecology Program and titled “The National Biomass and Carbon Dataset 2000 (NBCD 2000): A High Spatial Resolution Baseline to Reduce Uncertainty in Carbon Accounting and Flux Modeling.” The main objective of the project was to generate a high-resolution (30 m), year-2000 baseline estimate of basal area-weighted canopy height, aboveground live dry biomass, and standing carbon stock for the conterminou The accompanying dataset was produced as part of a project funded under NASA’s Terrestrial Ecology Program and titled “The National Biomass and Carbon Dataset 2000 (NBCD 2000): A High Spatial Resolution Baseline to Reduce...

This data set includes topography and backscatter intensity of the sea floor of the Hudson Shelf Valley, located offshore of New York and New Jersey. The data were collected with a multibeam sea floor mapping system on surveys conducted November 23 - December 3, 1996, October 26 - November 11, 1998, and April 6 - 30, 2000. The surveys were conducted using a Simrad EM 1000 multibeam echo sounder mounted aboard the Canadian Hydrographic Service vessel Frederick G. Creed. This multibeam system utilizes 60 electronically aimed receive beams spaced at intervals of 2.5 degrees that insonify a strip of sea floor up to 7.5 times the water depth (swath width of 100 to 200 m within the survey area). Maps derived from the...
