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 ...

Sediment Database and Geochemical Assessment of Lake Pontchartrain Basin

Detailed chemical, station (source and documentation, sample locations), and texture data are provided for bottom sediments of Lake Pontchartrain, Louisiana. The sediment data are provided as spreadsheet (Microsoft Excel), database (Microsoft Access), and tab-delimited files on CD-ROM and web site. The browser format is the same for both mediums. These data are in the form of appendixes at the end of the report, which provides extensive supporting data, interpretive diagrams, and discussion. The data were ...

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 ...
