Sound Velocity Profiles, AML Minos X sound velocity profile data, collected during USGS field activity 2017-049-FA within Lake Powell, UT-AZ (PNG images, SVP text, and Esri point shapefile, GCS WGS 84).

High-resolution geophysical mapping of Lake Powell in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in Utah and Arizona was conducted between October 8 and November 15, 2017, as part of a collaborative effort between the U.S. Geological Survey and the Bureau of Reclamation to provide high-quality data needed to reassess the area-capacity tables for the Lake Powell reservoir. Seismic data collected during this survey can help to define the rates of deposition within the San Juan and Colorado Rivers, which are the ...

Photographs of vibracores from Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California

This portion of the data release presents linescan images (photographs) from vibracores collected from Searsville Lake, a reservoir in Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California in October 2018 (USGS Field Activity 2018-682-FA). Images were obtained from two vibracores (JRBP2018-VC01A and JRBP2018-VC01B) at 50-micron (200 pixel per cm) resolution. Color images in 16-bit TIFF format are provided for each core segment, along with proprietary metadata files containing image scaling information.

Sediment grain-size distributions from vibracores collected in Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California

This portion of the data release presents sediment grain-size data from vibracores collected from Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California in October 2018 (USGS Field Activity 2018-682-FA). In total, 36 samples were subsampled from two vibracores: JRBP2018-VC01A and JRBP2018-VC01B. The grain-size distributions of samples were determined using standard techniques developed by the USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center sediment lab. The grain-size data are provided in a ...

Core locations, segment depths, and estimated compaction from vibracores collected in Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California

This portion of the data release presents measurements and data from two vibracores (JRBP2018-VC01A and JRBP2018-VC01B) collected from Searsville Lake, a reservoir in the Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California, on October 29, 2018 (USGS Field Activity 2018-682-FA). Vibracoring introduced significant amounts of sediment compaction. The core depths in other datasets of this data release are not corrected for compaction. Translated depths are provided in this portion of the data release that ...

Hydrological and chemical records from the flooded Ox Bel Ha cave system in the Yucatan Peninsula, Quintana Roo, from August 2014 to January 2015

Natural cave passages penetrating coastal aquifers in the Yucatan Peninsula (Quintana Roo, Mexico) were accessed to investigate how regional meteorology and hydrology control dissolved organic carbon and methane dynamics in karst subterranean estuaries, the region of aquifers where fresh and saline waters mix. Three field trips were carried out in December 2013, August 2014, and January 2015 to obtain 1) physicochemical and 2) geochemical data from the water column and 3) temporal records of water chemistry ...
