These data were released prior to the October 1, 2016 effective date for the USGS’s policy dictating the review, approval, and release of scientific data as referenced in USGS Survey Manual Chapter 502.8 Fundamental Science Practices: Review and Approval of Scientific Data for Release. The elevation contour data was created based on bathymetry obtained in the meander reach collected in about a one month period extending from 6/3/2010 - 6/19/2010. This subset data extends from river kilometer designator 228 upstream to 237. Similar methods used to collect and process the bathymetry are described in Fosness (2013). The contours were created from a surface raster (also referred to as digital elevation model) of the...

In 2009, the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho released and implemented the Kootenai River Habitat Restoration Master Plan. This plan aimed to restore, enhance, and maintain the Kootenai River habitat and landscape to support and sustain habitat conditions for aquatic species and animal populations. In support of these restoration efforts, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho, conducted high-resolution...

These data were released prior to the October 1, 2016 effective date for the USGS’s policy dictating the review, approval, and release of scientific data as referenced in USGS Survey Manual Chapter 502.8 Fundamental Science Practices: Review and Approval of Scientific Data for Release. The surficial bed-sediment facies, herein after referred to as the sediment facies, quantitatively describes the dominant sediment substrate on the surface of the river bed. Sediment facies categories were based on the grain size distribution of Wentworth (1922) which included the following ranges or combination of ranges: gravel (2-64mm), sand (0.063-2mm) and silt/clay (less than 0.063mm). An underwater video monitoring system UVMS...

The substrate enhancement pilot project (SEPP) extent GIS layer represents an area where an artificial substrate will be placed. The artificial substrate, consisting of a mixed size class of gravel, is aimed at providing a more suitable substrate for sturgeon eggs and early-life rearing habitat. The location of the SEPP extent was created by analyzing the egg-mat network, bathymetric features, surficial sediment facies, and streamflow...

The major clay step features are defined as having a vertical face that is greater than 1.5 meters. The clay step features were qualitately identified using an underwater video monitoring sysyem. The extent and magnitude of the clay steps were mapped using a muliteam bathymetric echosounder system.

An Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) was used to survey streamflow characteristics including total streamflow, velocity magnitude and secondary flow structure, and backscatter intensity at 29 cross-sections at the Myrtle Creek Bend on the Kootenai River on June 1, 2012. Each of the 29 cross-sections consisted of 4 transects or bank-to-bank coverage to obtain a representative velocity pattern. The mean daily streamflow was...

These data were compiled for the use of training natural feature machine learning (GeoAI) detection and delineation. The natural feature classes include the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) feature types Basins, Bays, Bends, Craters, Gaps, Guts, Islands, Lakes, Ridges and Valleys, and are an areal representation of those GNIS point features. Features were produced using heads-up digitizing from 2018 to 2019 by Dr. Sam Arundel's team at the U.S. Geological Survey, Center of Excellence for Geospatial Information Science, Rolla, Missouri, USA, and Dr. Wenwen Li's team in the School of Geographical Sciences at Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona, USA. Figure 1 shows the areal boundary (cyan) of Bachelor...

The minor clay step features are defined as having a vertical face that is less than or equal to 1.5 meters. The clay step features were qualitately identified using an underwater video monitoring sysyem. The extent and magnitude of the clay steps were mapped using a muliteam bathymetric echosounder system.

The egg-mat data describe a sub-set of the egg-mat network operated by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. The sub-set inlcudes two sites, 1. near an area commonly known as Shorty's Island, and 2. near the Kootenai River confluence with Myrtle Creek at an area commonly known as Myrtle Bend. The egg-mats consist of artificial substrate mats that are deployed and retrieved every 24-48 hours by IDFG personnel. The egg-mat material...

A new 30-m spatial resolution global shoreline vector (GSV) was developed from annual composites of 2014 Landsat satellite imagery. The semi-automated classification of the imagery was accomplished by manual selection of training points representing water and non-water classes along the entire global coastline. Polygon topology was applied to the GSV, and the resulting polygons were mapped into four size classes of islands: Continental Mainlands, Big Islands (greater than 1 km2), Small Islands (less than or equal to 1 km2 and greater than or equal to 0.0036 km2), and Very Small Islands (less than 0.0036 km2).

We investigated whether foraging habitat, sex, or fidelity to a foraging area effected blood mercury concentrations in western gulls (Larus occidentalis) from three colonies on the west coast of the United States. Dataset includes total mercury concentrations in western gulls from three colony locations and associated foraging habitat of individual gulls. These data support the following publication: Clatterbuck, C.A., Lewison, R.L., Orben, R.A., Ackerman, J.T., Torres, L.G., Suryan, R.M., Warzybok, P., Jahncke, J. and Shaffer, S.A., 2021. Foraging in marine habitats increases mercury concentrations in a generalist seabird. Chemosphere, p.130470.
