This metadata record describes two metrics that quantitatively measure the impact of reservoir storage on every flowline in the NHDPlus version 2 data suite (NHDPlusV2) for the conterminous United States. These metrics are computed for every 10 years from 1800 - 2015. The first metric (DamIndex_EROM.zip) estimates reservoir storage intensity in units of days based on reservoir storage in a contributing area normalized by the mean annual streamflow. This metric indicates the duration of storage impact upstream from each stream segment relative to the typical flow condition. In addition, this metric provides an assessment of the potential influence of a dam on average and low flows because the metric estimates the...

This tabular data set contains decadal information on dams compiled for two spatial components of the NHDPlus version 2 data suite (NHDPlusv2) for the conterminous United States; 1) individual reach catchments and 2) reach catchments accumulated upstream through the river network. This dataset can be linked to the NHDPlus version 2 data suite by the unique identifier COMID. The source data for dam information was produced by the United States Army Corps of Engineers. The information provided here contains the number of dams (both major and minor), dam storage (acre feet) and decade of construction compiled as described above. Reach catchment information characterizes data at the local scale. Reach catchments accumulated...

The main objective of this project was to develop a dataset of large, anthropogenic barriers that are spatially linked to the National Hydrography Dataset Plus Version 1 (NHDPlusV1) for the conterminous U.S. and the high resolution National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) for Alaska (1:63,000 scale) and Hawaii (1:24,000 scale) to facilitate GIS analyses based on the NHDPlusV1/NHD and NID datasets. To meet this objective, Michigan State University conducted a spatial linkage of the point dataset of the 2009 National Inventory of Dams (NID) created by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to the NHDPlusV1/NHD. The pool of dam data included were modified based on 1) dam removals that occurred after development of the...

A new and more complete version of this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5066/P9QQTKA0. This dataset contains information about waterfall location and characteristics. It also provides a linear reference to two National Hydrography Datasets. This dataset is based off the World Waterfall Database (WWD) and other source datasets. The coordinates and spatial attributes from the WWD were used to help verify locations in Google Earth. From there, the USGS HydroLink Tool was used to link data to both the NHDPlusV2.1 (1:100,000 scale) and NHD High Resolution Dataset (1:24,000 scale). This dataset currently includes waterfalls from the states of Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska, Illinois and Missouri....

This dataset describes attributes of surface-water impoundments derived from the National Inventory of Dams (NID), National Land Cover Data (NLCD) and the National Hydrography Dataset Plus (NHDPlus). Reservoir surface areas were determined using National Inventory of Dams Reservoir Surface area, NHDPlus Waterbody area, and National Land Cover Data (NLCD) open water body area as data sources. National Inventory of Dams were indexed on NHDPlus V2.1 using several sources and methods which are described in detail in the Process_Description section. The open-water classification in the NLCD was used to extract open water areas.
