The data release consists of a single NetCDF file with results from a suite of ice sheet model simulations. We ran with Community Ice Sheet Model (CISM2) with input from models used in the Palaeoclimate Modelling Intercomparison 3 (PMIP3). The NetCDF file contains output from model year 50,000 for a limited number of variables to keep the file size reasonably small. This subset of variables are the ones we focus our analysis and paper on.
The development of Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV) growth model within the Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere-Wave-Sediment Transport (COAWST) model leads to a change in SAV biomass. The SAV biomass is computed from temperature, nutrient loading and light predictions obtained from coupled hydrodynamics (temperature), bio-geochemistry (nutrients) and bio-optical (light) models. In exchange, the growth of SAV sequesters or contributes nutrients from the water column and sediment layers. The presence of SAV modulates current and wave attenuation and consequently affects modelled sediment transport. The model of West Falmouth Harbor in Massachusetts, USA was simulated to study the seagrass growth/dieback pattern in a hypothetical...

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Bureau of Land Management, used streamflow measurements at 11 partial-record sites and related them to nearby USGS or Idaho Power Company real-time streamgages (index sites) to provide daily mean streamflow values at ungaged (partial-record) sites within the Wild and Scenic River of the Owyhee Canyonlands Wilderness, Idaho. Daily mean streamflow was estimated by developing a regression relationship between streamflow at each partial-record site and the index site for the period of record of the index site. The regressions are then used to estimate annual and semimonthly 20-, 50-, and 80-percent exceedance probability streamflow statistics at each partial-record...

This data release contains extent shapefiles for 16 hypothetical slope failure scenarios for a landslide complex at Barry Arm, western Prince William Sound, Alaska. The landslide is likely active due to debuttressing from the retreat of Barry Glacier (Dai and others, 2020) and sits above Barry Arm, posing a tsunami risk in the event of slope failure (Barnhart and others, 2021). Since discovery of the landslide by a citizen scientist in 2020, kinematic structural elements have been mapped (Coe and others, 2020) and ground-based and satellite synthetic aperture radar (SAR) have been used to track ongoing movement at a high spatial resolution (Schaefer and others, 2020; Schaefer and others, 2022). These efforts have...
An idealized domain is setup to test the development of Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV) growth model within the Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere-Wave-Sediment Transport (COAWST) model. The change in SAV biomass is computed from temperature, nutrient loading and light predictions obtained from coupled hydrodynamics (temperature), bio-geochemistry (nutrients) and bio-optical (light) models. In exchange, the growth of SAV sequesters or contributes nutrients from the water column and sediment layers. The presence of SAV modulates current and wave attenuation and consequently affects modelled sediment transport. The idealized domain simulation shows that the newly developed framework can simulate a two-way coupled SAV-biogeochemistry-hydrodynamic...

Simulations of one-dimensional (1-D) diffusion and adsorption of trichloroethene (TCE) in a rock matrix are conducted using rock properties identified from a mudstone aquifer in the Newark Basin, near West Trenton, New Jersey. The simulations are conducted using a finite-difference algorithm that was prepared for this investigation to solve the equation for 1-D diffusion and linear equilibrium adsorption. The simulations are conducted for a hypothesized 1-D section of a rock matrix and the georeferencing is based on the locations of the rock core samples that were collected and analyzed as part of this investigation. The rock matrix is assumed to be adjacent to a fracture, where the TCE concentration in the fracture...

These GeoTIFF data were compiled to investigate how a new multivariate matching algorithm transfers simulated plant functional biomass of big sagebrush plant communities from 200 sites to a gridded product with 30-arcsec spatial resolution. Objectives of our study were to (1) describe how climate change will alter the biomass and composition of key plant functional types; (2) quantify the impacts of climate change on future functional type biomass and composition along climatic gradients; (3) identify if and which geographic locations will be relatively unaffected by climate change while others experience large effects; and (4) determine if there is consistency in climate change impacts on plant communities among...

The algorithms and input data included in this data release are used to interpret time-series data (water-table altitude, precipitation, snowmelt, and potential evapotranspiration) over an observation period to estimate model parameters of a State-Space Model (SSM) of vertical infiltration to the groundwater table. The SSM model is coupled with a Kalman Filter (KF) to estimate system states (water-table altitude and groundwater recharge) over the observation period. This SSM and KF model is formulated for one-dimensional vertical infiltration and includes preferential and diffuse flow through the unsaturated zone to the water table. The analysis was conducted to demonstrate the application of the SSM and KF model...

The algorithms and input data included in this data release are used to interpret time-series data (water- table altitude, precipitation, and potential evapotranspiration) over an observation period to estimate model parameters of a State-Space (SS) model of vertical infiltration to a fractured-rock aquifer. The SS model is coupled with a Kalman Filter (KF) to estimate system states (water-table altitude and groundwater recharge) over the observation period and forecast beyond the end of the observation period. This SS/KF model is formulated for one-dimensional vertical infiltration and includes preferential and diffuse flow through the unsaturated zone to the water table. The analysis was conducted to demonstrate...

The algorithms in this data release implement a State-Space Model (SSM) of vertical infiltration through the unsaturated zone and recharge to the water table. These algorithms build on previous investigations available at https://doi.org/10.1029/2020WR029110 and https://doi.org/10.1111/gwat.13206. The SSM is defined by observed states (i.e., the water-table altitude) and unobserved states (i.e., fluxes through the unsaturated zone and recharge to the water table)and interprets time-series data for observations of water-table altitude and meteorological inputs (i.e., the liquid precipitation rate and the Potential Evapotranspiration (PET) rate). The algorithms first perform the estimation of the SSM parameters from...

Simulations of radial diffusion, adsorption, and reactions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) - trichloroethene (TCE), cis-1,2-dichloroethene (cDCE), vinyl chloride (VC), trichlorofluoroethene (TCFE) - and bromide (Br) in a porous media are conducted using rock properties identified from a mudstone aquifer in the Newark Basin, near West Trenton, New Jersey. The simulations are conducted using a finite-difference algorithm that was prepared for this investigation to solve the equation for radial diffusion, linear equilibrium adsorption, and zero- and first-order biodegradation. The simulations are conducted for a section of a rock matrix and the georeferencing is based on the locations of the well from which concentration...

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho, used streamflow measurements at 14 partial-record sites and related them to nearby USGS real-time streamgages (index sites) to provide daily mean streamflow values at ungaged (partial-record) sites. Daily mean streamflow was estimated by developing a regression relationship between streamflow at each partial-record site and the index site for the period of record of the index site. The daily mean streamflow at partial-record sites will support the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho effort to understand fish and wildlife habitat in the watershed and provide streamflow estimates for Kootenai River tributaries for use in hydraulic modeling that...

Greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) has been identified as a potential umbrella species with the assumption that conservation of their habitats in sagebrush ecosystems may benefit multiple other wildlife species, but co-occurrence with an umbrella species does not necessarily guarantee species will respond positively to management for sage-grouse. This may be particularly true for ecotones, such as at the eastern edge of the sage-grouse range where sagebrush steppe and Great Plains grasslands intersect. We used a novel application of neutral landscape models (Etherington et al., 2015) to evaluate observed and expected overlap between greater sage-grouse habitat (1994-2010; Fedy et al., 2014) and distribution...

In 2011-12, the U.S. Geological Survey conducted a study of the and hydrogeomorphic history and hydrodynamic characteristics of the lower 5 kilometers of the Sheboygan River, a tributary to Lake Michigan in eastern Wisconsin. The hydrogeomorphic history and stability of an ecologically important island complex in the Sheboygan River, the Wildwood Islands, was studied to determine the potential effects of inundation of island surfaces on riparian vegetation and potential areas of erosion and deposition. A two-dimensional (2D) channel hydraulics model was developed for simulating the interaction of riverine flows with varying lake levels and seiche effects. This dataset contains model input and output associated with...

To provide daily mean streamflow values at ungaged (partial-record) sites within the Yankee Fork Salmon River watershed, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, used discharge measurements at three partial-record sites and related those measurements to a nearby USGS real-time streamgage (index site). Daily mean streamflow was estimated by developing a regression relationship between each partial-record site and the index site for water years 2012-2019. These data are intended to provide daily mean streamflow estimates at partial-record sites as part of a larger study (Clark and others, 2021) to estimate sediment loading for each site.
