This Benthic Invertebrate Community Analysis dataset, a conceptual subgroup of the Lake Erie Ecological Investigations (LEEI) dataset, focuses on the benthic invertebrates sampled at Areas of Concern (AOCs) on Lake Erie. Per the Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP), the invertebrate samples were taken from sediments remaining from the sediment analysis. Identification of the invertebrates was completed by the same invertebrate taxonomist for both the 1998-2000 evaluation and 1986-87 historical evaluation (Smith et al. 1994) for increased consistency. Oligochaetes were identified to species if possible, chironomids were identified to genus, as adult specimens are needed for specific identification, and other taxa...

During the winter of 2016 and the summer of 2018, the U.S. Geological Survey, Lower Mississippi-Gulf Water Science Center collected sediment cores for grain-size analysis in Mississippi and Arkansas. In a farm field adjacent to the Tallahatchie River near Money, Mississippi, 13 continuous sections of approximately 5-cm (2-in) diameter by approximately 1.5-m (5-ft) long sediment cores were extracted to better understand the sediment within the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer. These data were used to support ongoing aquifer testing activities by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service. Lake Poinsett Dam is an earthen embankment dam located near Harrisburg, AR. In May of 2018, the...

Coastal communities are uniquely vulnerable to sea-level rise (SLR) and severe storms such as hurricanes. These events enhance the dispersion and concentration of natural and anthropogenic chemicals and pathogenic microorganisms that could adversely affect the health and resilience of coastal communities and ecosystems in coming years. The U.S. Geo­logical Survey has developed the Sediment-Bound Contaminant Resiliency and Response (SCoRR) strategy to define baseline and post-event sediment-bound environmental health (EH) stressors. These data document toxicity measured by reduction of the light emission of Aliivibrio (formerly Photobacterium) fischeri and the inhibition of polymerase chain reactions caused by environmental...
