This data set is a point data layer representing well yield at 7,287 bedrock wells in the Nashoba Terrane in central and eastern Massachusetts. The data were compiled from databases of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and U.S. Geological Survey. The data are described and interpreted in U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2012-5155 by DeSimone and Barbaro (2012).

The U.S. Geological Survey Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (PRMS) was used to assess the effects of changing climate and land disturbance on seasonal streamflow in the Rio Grande Headwaters (RGHW) region. Three applications of PRMS in the RGHW were used to simulate 1) baseline effects of climate (see RGHW-PRMS_baseline_input.zip), 2) effects of bark-beetle induced tree mortality (see RGHW-PRMS_BB_input.zip), and 3) effects of wildfire (see RGHW-PRMS_fire_input.zip), on components of the hydrologic cycle by hydrologic response unit (HRU) and subsequent seasonal streamflow runoff from April through September for water years 1980 through 2017. PRMS input files (control, climate-by-hru, data, parameter, dynamic...

This data set contains two sets of measured water-level data collected in an area between the Platte and Elkhorn Rivers just above their confluence. Surface-water and groundwater-level data were collected during the fall of 2016 during synoptic water-level survey completed during a low-groundwater demand period and a summer 2017 synoptic water-level survey completed during a high-groundwater demand period. The elevations of surface-water features were surveyed with a rover receiver using a real-time network, where the rover receiver receives real-time position corrections from a central server through a mobile wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) hotspot linked to the rover receiver. Data collection procedures ensured that...

This data release contains well yield and ancillary data for 7,287 bedrock wells used in an analysis of bedrock well yield in the Nashoba Terrane and surrounding area in eastern and central Massachusetts. The data release also contains Geographic Information System (GIS) data layers of lineaments delineated from aerial photographs and digital elevation data for a part of the Nashoba Terrane study area. Ancillary data consist of well depth; bedrock geology, surficial geology, topographic setting, and wetlands at the well location; distance of the well to hydrologic and geologic features; and distance of the well to lineaments. The data were interpreted in U.S. Geological Survey Scientific-Investigations Report 2012-5155,...

This dataset presents water withdrawal estimates, consumption estimates, and associated information for 1,122 water-using, utility scale thermoelectric power plants in the United States for 2015. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) developed models to estimate thermoelectric water use based on linked heat-and-water budgets, including thermodynamically plausible ranges of minimum and maximum withdrawal and consumption, to provide a consistent method for water-use estimation across the fleet of U.S. thermoelectric plants. Historically, thermoelectric water withdrawal and consumption has been estimated by the Department of Energy's Energy Information Administration (EIA) based on surveys of plant operator-reported data...

This dataset includes measured water-levels, water-level contours, aerial thermal infrared (TIR) imagery, and a stream centerline that were used to describe groundwater movement and interaction with surface water between the lower Platte and lower Elkhorn Rivers upstream of their confluence. The study design described herein focused on understanding seasonal characteristics of groundwater movement and interaction with surface water during periods of high groundwater demand (June through August) and low groundwater demand (all other months). Measured groundwater level and surface-water level data were collected during a low groundwater demand period in fall of 2016 and a high groundwater demand period in summer...

Select PRMS output variables for each simulation are...

This dataset combines three Federal datasets of thermoelectric, non-industrial, power plant water withdrawals and associated plant information for the United States in 2010, excluding Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Historically, thermoelectric water withdrawal has been estimated by the Department of Energy's Energy Information Administration (EIA) through surveys of plant operator-reported data, and the Department of Interior's U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) 5-year water-use reports including data compiled from state water agencies, plant operators, and the EIA. Recently, the USGS developed models for estimating withdrawal at thermoelectric plants to provide independent estimates from plant operator-reported...

A table is presented listing: (1) monthly streamflows, (2) drought duration dates, (3) drought severity indices, (4) supporting statistics, and (5) identification tags, for analysis of hydrological droughts in the Conterminous United States (CONUS). Data were summarized from USGS streamflow daily values (DV), readily available from the U.S. Geological Survey National Water Information System (NWIS), for USGS gage stations used in SIR 2017-5099 Variability of Hydrological Droughts in the Conterminous United States, 1951 through 2014 by Samuel H. Austin, David M. Wolock, and David L. Nelms. https://doi. org/10.3133/sir20175099

A hydrogeologic framework was developed by USGS during 2016-19 to describe the groundwater system on the Virginia Eastern Shore. This USGS data release contains text files of (1) interpreted borehole hydrogeologic-unit top-surface altitudes, (2) summary values of previously documented estimates of aquifer hydraulic properties, and (3) groundwater-sample chloride concentrations and well summary statistics. In addition are shapefiles of altitude contours for 10 hydrogeologic-unit top surfaces, and for the groundwater 250 milligrams per liter chloride-concentration surface. This data release supports the following publication: McFarland, E.R., and Beach, T.A., 2019, Hydrogeologic framework of the Virginia Eastern...

This data release includes data containing projections of unimpaired hydrology, reservoir storage, and downstream managed flows in the Sacramento River/San Joaquin River watershed under scenarios of future climate change generated for the CASCaDE2 project (Computational Assessments of Scenarios of Change for the Delta Ecosystem, phase 2). Code used to produce the data is also included. The dataset is produced using a multiple-model approach. First, downscaled global climate model outputs are used to drive an existing Variable Infiltration Capacity/Variable Infiltration Capacity Routing (VIC/RVIC) model of Sacramento/San Joaquin hydrology, resulting in projections of daily, unimpaired flows throughout the watershed....

Understanding how changing climatic conditions affect streamflow volume and timing is critical for effective water management. In the Rio Grande Basin of the southwest U.S., decreasing snowpack, increasing minimum temperatures, and decreasing streamflow have been observed in recent decades, but the effects of hydroclimatic changes on baseflow, or groundwater discharge to streams, have not been investigated. The dataset created in this data release was used to help support a study to determine how trends in precipitation, snowpack accumulation, and snowmelt rate relate to streamflow, baseflow, and the hydrologic partitioning of baseflow and runoff at 12 sites in the Upper Rio Grande Basin (URGB) during 1980 to 2015....
