This data release includes a polygon shapefile of grid cells attributed with values representing the simulated base-flow, evapotranspiration, and groundwater-storage depletions as a percentage of hypothetical well pumpage for the 2011-2060 time period. Depletions were simulated by the Phase-Three Elkhorn-Loup Model (ELM), constructed using MODFLOW-NWT (Niswonger and others, 2011). Each polygon represents one model grid cell, with pumping specified from either layer one or layer two of the model. All values are estimates and approximations. The phase three ELM simulated the High Plains aquifer in north-central Nebraska from predevelopment (pre-1895) through 2060 (Flynn and Stanton, 2018). The simulation was calibrated...

Baseflow is the portion of streamflow derived from groundwater flow. It is an important component of the groundwater budget, and can be estimated using known total streamflow at given points through time. Daily streamflow data was collected from 25 streamflow gaging stations across the northern High Plains Groundwater Availability Study (NHPGAS) area from the National Water Information System (NWIS) and the Nebraska Department of...

A hydrogeologic framework of the Ozark Plateaus aquifer system was constructed as the base for a groundwater flow model developed as part of the U.S. Geological Survey Water Availability and Use Science Program to aid in the understanding of groundwater availability in select aquifer systems of the United States. The Ozark Plateaus aquifer system study area (hereinafter referred to as the “Ozark system”) is nearly 70,000 square miles and includes parts of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma. A hydrogeologic framework was constructed to represent the altitudes and thicknesses of nine hydrogeologic units within the Ozark Plateaus aquifer system - . the Western Interior Plains confining system, Springfield Plateau...

Groundwater recharge is an important part of water budget estimation and is a critical data component used in creating and calibrating groundwater flow models such as MODFLOW. Soil Water Balance Models (SWB) can be used to estimate potential groundwater recharge across spatial domains and through time. This metadata record describes an SWB archive for parts of the Coastal Plain of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, eastern United States. The model was run for various land cover build out scenarios and several downscaled climate models (SWB) The model’s pixel resolution is 609.9-meters (m) and it was run for the for the period 1979 - 2060. The SWB model executable code is detailed in the report SWB—A Modified...

A three-dimensional, steady-state groundwater-flow model representing 2003-13 mean hydrologic conditions was developed and calibrated to assess groundwater and lake-water exchanges and the effects of groundwater withdrawals and precipitation on water levels in lakes in the northeast Twin Cities Metropolitan Area, Minnesota. The USGS groundwater-flow model program MODFLOW-NWT version 1.0.8 was used to simulate groundwater flow in the approximately 1,000-square-mile area of the northeast Twin Cities Metropolitan Area and western Wisconsin. Water levels were below normal for several lakes in the northeast Twin Cities Metropolitan Area during 2003 through 2013. Previous periods of low lake-water levels generally correlate...
