The Gap Analysis Project (GAP) is an element of the U.S. Geological Survey. GAP helps to implement the Department of the Interior’s goals of inventory, monitoring, research, and information transfer. GAP has three primary goals: Identify conservation gaps that help keep common species common; Provide conservation information to the public so that informed resource management decisions can be made; and Facilitate the application of GAP data and analysis to specific resource management activities. To implement these goals, GAP carries out the following objectives: Map the land cover of the United States Map predicted distributions of vertebrate species for the U.S. Map the location, ownership and stewardship of...
Earthquake-triggered ground-failure, such as landsliding and liquefaction, can contribute significantly to losses, but our current ability to accurately include them in earthquake hazard analyses is limited. The development of robust and transportable models requires access to numerous inventories of ground failure triggered by earthquakes that span a broad range of terrains, shaking characteristics, and climates. We present an openly accessible, centralized earthquake-triggered ground-failure inventory repository in the form of a ScienceBase Community to provide open access to these data, and help accelerate progress. The Community hosts digital inventories created by both USGS and non-USGS authors. We present...
The Aquatic Gap Program represents the portion of the USGS Gap Analysis Program that focuses on aquatic species found in coastal and inland waters. The goal of the National Aquatic GAP is to evaluate aquatic biological diversity and aquatic habitats using spatial analysis and habitat suitability models to identify gaps in species distribution and work toward more effective conservation prioritization. Our current efforts are focused on modeling the rangewide distribution of fish species which are wide ranging, non-habitat specialist, and of specific interest to our natural resource management agency and conservation partners.

This ScienceBase community represents ReSciColl (Registry of Scientific Collections), formerly the National Digital Catalog, of the National Geological and Geophysical Data Preservation Program (NGGDPP). ReSciColl includes metadata records describing geological, geophysical and biological collections and data managed by state geological surveys and USGS. These collections include rock samples, thin sections, field notebooks, photographs, maps, datasets, and others. Collections are described using metadata elements identified by the NGGDPP as important for discovering, understanding, accessing, and using physical collections. Contact and access information is provided for collections and individual samples to enable...

The Core Library and Data Center at Mercury, Nevada, was established as a repository for geologic, hydrologic, and geophysical data and materials collected in support of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) defense and environment programs at the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS), formerly Nevada Test Site (NTS). The Core Library is operated by the U.S. Geological Survey and has been used as a staging area for many scientific studies throughout the south western United States, in addition to NNSS. The Core Library houses drill-bit cuttings, drill core (both vertical and horizontal), geophysical logs, and other rock samples collected mostly from NNSS. Some samples are from other DOE facilities in New Mexico, Mississippi,...

The U.S. Geological Survey’s Wetland and Aquatic Research Center (WARC), formed in 2015, pulls together experts in biology and ecology from around the Southeastern United States and Caribbean. With primary locations in Lafayette, Louisiana, and Gainesville, Florida, WARC scientists pursue relevant and objective research and new approaches and technologies, to build scientific knowledge and provide understanding and tools for wise management and conservation of wetlands and aquatic ecosystems and their associated plant and animal communities throughout the nation and the world, with an emphasis on the Southeast United States, the Caribbean, and the Gulf of Mexico. Beyond the primary centers, research facilities...
Cataloging data and publications for projects associated Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center (UMESC).
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) GLRI effort is being coordinated and managed by the USGS Midwest Region in accordance with the USGS science strategy - one that is driven by cross-disciplinary integrative science and conducted in collaboration with partners to provide resource managers with the information and decision-making tools they need to help restore the Great Lakes.
This is a catalog of datasets available for processing with the Geo Data Portal.
The John Wesley Powell Center for Earth System Analysis and Synthesis supports proposal driven working groups to examine some of the most pressing questions and needs for scientific synthesis across the USGS Mission Areas. Working groups are funded to work with existing data as opposed to collecting new data, and the data synthesis results of all projects are published along with journal articles and other products. ScienceBase provides the data backbone for Powell Center working groups. It is used to catalog data and information resources used by the working groups and is the repository for products coming out of the working groups. Wherever possible, new data from working groups are made part of some larger data...
