Attenuation Factor model results for Upper Floridan aquifer vulnerability to Bromacil and Ethylene Dibromide

This dataset includes Attenuation Factor (AF; Rao and others, 1985) model results for Upper Floridan aquifer vulnerability to Bromacil and 1,2-Dibromoethane or Ethylene Dibromide (EDB). The AF value serves as an index for assessing the transport of pesticide mass from the vadose zone. The AF model setup requires the input of raster soil bulk density, soil organic carbon content, soil field capacity, soil air filled porosity, recharge to the aquifer, depth to groundwater, the pesticide sorption coefficient, ...

Experimental PCR Data on Soil DNA Extracts

Bacillus species and B. anthracis presence/absence data were determined in 4,770 soil samples collected across the contiguous United States, in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) data for Bacillus species and B. anthracis rpoB gene PCR amplicon detection were reported as non-detect (n), low (l), medium (m), and high (h). Results for both pag and lef genes of the pX01 plasmid were reported by the University of South Florida's Center for Biological ...

Digital Polymerase Chain Reaction (dPCR) Data from the Sediment-Bound Contaminant Resiliency and Response Strategy Pilot Study, Northeastern United States, 2015

Due to the recognized proliferation and spread of antibiotic resistance genes by anthropogenic use of antibiotics for human, agriculture and aquaculture purposes, antibiotic resistance genes have been defined as an emerging contaminant (Laxminarayan and others, 2013; Rodriguez-Rojas and others, 2013; Niu and others, 2016). The presence and spread of these genes in non-clinical and non-agricultural environments has created the need for background investigations to enhance our understanding of the magnitude ...

DRASTIC model results for Upper Floridan aquifer vulnerability to Bromacil and Ethylene Dibromide

This dataset includes DRASTIC (Aller and others, 1987) model results for Upper Floridan aquifer vulnerability to contamination. The DRASTIC value serves as an intrinsic vulnerability index for assessing the transport of contaminants from the surface. The DRASTIC model setup requires the input of raster data for depth to groundwater, aquifer recharge, aquifer media, soil media, topography, vadose zone media, and aquifer hydraulic conductivity. These variables were entered into the DRASTIC equation using the ...

Southeast Florida and Florida Keys Antibiotic Resistance Study

The prevalence of antibiotic resistance genes in microbial communities from sewage wastewater streams and from offshore marine sediments in the vicinity of sewage wastewater outfalls in Southeast Florida was investigated from June 2018 to March 2019. Sediment and wastewater samples were analyzed for 15 different antibiotic resistant gene targets via polymerase chain reaction (PCR) presence/absence assays in Southeast Florida coral reef environments. Data collected from five sites (Broward North Wastewater ...

Microbial Ecology of the Floridan Aquifer near Okeechobee, FL

This metadata record describes the microbial uptake of nutrients by native planktonic and biofilm-associated bacteria within the Upper Floridan Aquifer (approximately 1,000 feet below land surface) in the Okeechobee, Florida area. Groundwater samples were collected between 2018 and 2019 from a South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) monitoring well installed at the Kissimmee River Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) facility, which is located at the discharge point of the Kissimmee River into Lake ...

Collection, analysis, and age-dating of sediment cores from mangrove wetlands in San Juan Bay Estuary, Puerto Rico, 2016

The San Juan Bay Estuary, Puerto Rico, contains mangrove forests that store significant amounts of organic carbon in soils and biomass. There is a strong urbanization gradient across the estuary, from the highly urbanized and clogged Caño Martin Peña in the western part of the estuary, a series of lagoons in the center of the estuary, and a tropical forest reserve (Piñones) in the easternmost part with limited urbanization. We collected sediment cores to determine carbon burial rates and vertical ...
