In spring and summer 2017, the U.S. Geological Survey’s Gas Hydrates Project conducted two cruises aboard the research vessel Hugh R. Sharp to explore the geology, chemistry, ecology, physics, and oceanography of sea-floor methane seeps and water column gas plumes on the northern U.S. Atlantic margin between the Baltimore and Keller Canyons. Split-beam and multibeam echo sounders and a chirp subbottom profiler were deployed during the cruises to map water column backscatter, sea-floor bathymetry and backscatter, and subsurface stratigraphy associated with known and undiscovered sea-floor methane seeps. The first cruise, known as the Interagency Mission for Methane Research on Seafloor Seeps and designated as field...

Public lands have a variety of visual values. It is necessary to systematically identify and evaluate these values to determine the appropriate level of management. Visual values are identified through the VRM inventory and are considered with other resource values in the Resource Management Planning (RMP) process. The inventory consists of a scenic quality evaluation, sensitivity level analysis, and a delineation of distance zones. Scenic quality is an assessment of the visual appeal of a tract of land where a rating of ‘A’ indicates high quality while a rating of ‘C’ indicates low quality based on appearance of landform, vegetation, water, color, adjacent scenery, scarcity and cultural modifications. Areas of...

Public lands have a variety of visual values. These different values warrant different levels of management. Because it is neither desirable nor practical to provide the same level of management for all visual resources, it is necessary to systematically identify and evaluate these values to determine the appropriate level of management. Visual values are identified through the VRM inventory (Manual Section 8410) and are considered with other resource values in the Resource Management Planning (RMP) process. BLM M-8400 (.07)(A). Visual resource inventory classes are assigned through the inventory process. Class I is assigned to those areas where a management decision has been made previously to maintain a natural...

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 main inflows to Lake Powell. These new data are intended to improve water budget management decisions that affect the natural and recreational resources of the reservoir. Multibeam echosounder bathymetry and...

In September 2018, the U.S. Geological Survey, in collaboration with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, conducted high-resolution geophysical mapping and sediment sampling to determine the distribution of historical mine tailings on the floor of Lake Superior. Large amounts of waste material from copper mining, locally known as “stamp sands,” were dumped into the lake in the early 20th century, with wide-reaching consequences that have continued into the present. Mapping was focused offshore of the town of Gay on the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan, where ongoing erosion and re-deposition of the stamp sands has buried miles of native, white-sand beaches. Stamp sands are also encroaching onto Buffalo Reef, a large...

Federal investments in ecosystem restoration projects protect Federal trusts, ensure public health and safety, and preserve and enhance essential ecosystem services. These investments also generate business activity and create jobs. The Economic Impacts of Ecosystem Restoration project aims to increase the availability of information on the costs and activities associated with ecosystem restoration, and to gauge the economic effects of these investments to local economies. This website provides case studies of Department of Interior (DOI) restoration projects associated with Natural Resource Damage Assessment and Restoration (NRDAR) cases, and Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and...

This Story Map Tour discusses BLM sites that are excellent places to view bats, which can be seen without lights in the evening at twilight, foraging over the water and along canyon walls and riverside (riparian) vegetation. Once darkness falls, a strong flashlight or headlamp can be used to track bats in flight, and a bat detector can pick up the bat’s echolocation calls well into the night. The reason these sites are so well-used is they provide many of bats most important needs in close proximity; cliff crevices and old trees for roosting, water for drinking, and water and riparian vegetation that produces and attracts large numbers of bats insect prey. All the sites listed will have the greatest amount of activity...
