For 40 years, the Biological Survey of Canada (BSC) has encouraged and organised studies of the arthropod fauna of Canada, through the wide involvement of the scientific community and the leadership of an expert steering committee. The benefits of the BSC to science include the completion of major cooperative projects to acquire and synthesise knowledge (documenting faunas in the Yukon, Canadian grasslands, and other significant regions and habitats), the assembly and organisation of information and specimens, and improved communication among entomologists. Its efforts have led to valuable monographs, scientific briefs, newsletters, and other products summarised here, including documents that are also useful to...
This dataset contains two feature classes - contacts and map units - digitized from the Atlas of Mars 1:5,000,000 Geologic Series Map Amenthes Area (1979). Geologic structures have been omitted.
0.2-second spectral response acceleration (5% of critical damping) with a 1% probability of exceedance in 1 year for the Western United States
This data set represents the results of calculations of hazard curves for a grid of points with a spacing of 0.05 degrees in latitude and longitude. This particular data set is for horizontal spectral response acceleration for 0.2-second period with a 1 percent probability of exceedance in 1 year. The data are for the Western United States and are based on the long-term 2014 National Seismic Hazard Model.
The Gazli cluster is named for the town of Gazli in northwest Uzbekistan. The source region was nearly aseismic until April 8, 1976 when a large (Ms 7.0) earthquake initiated several years of very active seismicity, including another Ms 7.0 event in May 1976 and a third Ms 7.0 event in March 1984. Low-level activity continues currently. It is generally believed that the sequence represents an episode of induced seismicity related to large-scale gas extraction industry in the area. The cluster is formed mainly from events that have depth control from teleseismic relative depth phases, plus one event, on June 25, 1991, that was recorded by a temporary seismic network (operated by LGIT, Grenoble, France) and was well-enough...
Information on the nature and distribution of permafrost is critical to assessing the response of Arctic ecosystems to climate change, because thawing permafrost under a warming climate will cause thaw settlement and affect micro-topography, surface water redistribution and groundwater movement, soil carbon balance, trace gas emissions, vegetation changes, and habitat use. While a small-scale regional permafrost map is available, as well as information from numerous site-specific large-scale mapping projects, landscape-level mapping of permafrost characteristics is needed for regional modeling and climate impact assessments. The project addresses this need by: (1) compiling existing soil/permafrost data from available...
XYZ files of LiDAR and sonar data collected at Lake Superior at Minnesota Point, Duluth, MN, August 2019
This dataset is comprised of three files containing northing, easting, and elevation ("XYZ") information for light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data representing beach topography and sonar data representing near-shore bathymetry of Lake Superior at Minnesota Point, Duluth, Minnesota. The point data is the same as that in LAS (industry-standard binary format for storing large point clouds) files that were used to create a digital elevation model (DEM) of the approximately 5.9 square kilometer (2.3 square mile) surveyed area. LiDAR data were collected August 10, 2019 using a boat-mounted Optech ILRIS scanner and methodology similar to that described by Huizinga and Wagner (2019). Multi-beam sonar data were collected...
The US Geological Survey Chesapeake Bay Watershed Land Cover Data Series, 2011 edition, (CBLCD-e11) consists of Level I Land Cover data for the years 1984, 1992, 2001, 2006 and 2011. It consists of a series of five 8-bit unsigned integer raster data files of 30 meter spatial resolution in Albers Conic Equal Area projection, NAD83 datum. The 1984 – 2006 data layers were created by aggregating most Level II Anderson classes of the USGS CBLCD Land Cover Data Series released in 2010 (Irani and Claggett, 2010).
The Valparaiso cluster is named for the nearby city of Valparaiso, Chile. The cluster is based on a set of arrival time readings from a deployment of ocean bottom seismometers, hydrophones and a temporary land-based stations for several months in 2001 that were kindly provided by Frederik Tilmann (GeoForschungsZentrum). Most of the recorded events are fairly small, the largest having magnitude 4.8mb, but 34 events could be well located with free-depth solutions and linked to larger events in the region through readings at permanent seismograph stations. The remaining events in the cluster are ones for which depth control is available from at least one station close to the epicenter, i.e., within a distance of 1-1.5...
Proportion of Low and Black Sagebrush Land Cover (5-km scale) in the Wyoming Basins Ecoregional Assessment area
Proportion of low and black sagebrush land cover within a 5-km radius developed using a circular focal moving window analysis.
Location of mixed shrubland land cover obtained from the LANDFIRE Existing Vegetation Type dataset.
Development of oil and gas wells leads to the destruction and fragmentation of natural habitat. Oil and gas wells also increase noise levels which has been shown to be detrimental to some wildlife species. Therefore, the density of oil and gas wells in the western United States was modeled based on data obtained from the National Oil and Gas Assessment.

This dataset depicts 10 foot contours derived from the USGS 1/3 arc second (10m) digital elevation model.
This data layer represents a potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's 'Hardwood Forested Uplands' Priority Resource (PR). The potential CT shown here is the protected/managed area. These layers were created for an initial investigation of potential CT's suggested at brainstorming workshops. The initial investigation entails locating available datasets to address the suggested CT as closely as possible and performing minimal analyses to determine their usefulness. The final set of CT's and their associated datasets will be chosen after targets (e.g., endpoints) are established as a threshold for achieving a conservation success for that CT. The data layer available for evaluating the area under management and/or...
This data layer represents a tested potential Conservation Target (CT) for PFLCC's Priority Resource (PR): Coastal Uplands. The suggested potential CT was Species Richness. Species Richness is one component of biodiversity, an important aspect of landscape conservation. Biodiversity is important for maintaining the balance of natural communities and ecosystems upon which humans also depend. Florida has a high level of species diversity and endemism but the state is experiencing threats to its natural heritage from a variety of sources. The data used in this analysis in addition to the Priority Resource layer is the Species Richness layer from the CLIP 4.0 geodatabase. The core layer of the geodatabase is from the...
Characterization of seafloor photographs near the mouth of the Elwha River during the first two years of dam removal (2011-2013)
We characterized seafloor sediment conditions near the mouth of the Elwha River from underwater photographs taken every four hours from September 2011 to December 2013. A digital camera was affixed to a tripod that was deployed in approximately 10 meters of water (Tripod location from September 2011 to April 2013: 48.15333, -123.55931; tripod location from April 2013 to December 2013: 48.15407, -123.55444). Each photograph was qualitatively characterized as one of six categories: (1) base, or no sediment; (2) low sediment; (3) medium sediment; (4) high sediment; (5) turbid; or (6) kelp. For base conditions, no sediment was present on the seafloor. Low sediment conditions were characterized by a light dusting of...
