This is the USGS California Water Science Center's Catalog and Repository space. This space primarily supports CAWSC science projects by providing a place to organize and publicly release data which cannot fit within the USGS's National Water Information System. The CAWSC mission is to collect, analyze and disseminate impartial hydrologic data and information needed to wisely manage water resources for the people of the United States and the State of California. CAWSC Web site:
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact
