A digital representation of closed depression features overlying and adjacent to New York’s carbonate-bedrock aquifers. Includes closed depressions that are both natural and anthropogenic in origin. The features were derived from a digital contour database obtained from https://topotools.cr.usgs.gov/contour_data.php. The original contour dataset was generated from the National Elevation Dataset (NED) and the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) in a fully automated process. The process is described in U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2012–5167.

A digital representation of the study area boundary adopted for the GIS analyses. The boundary was created by intersecting an index of USGS 1:24,000-scale, 7.5-minute quadrangle maps with data containing selected bedrock geologic units from U.S. Geological Survey Data Series 1052. The final study area boundary covers more than 20,000 square miles, amounting to 38 percent of New York State and transecting 42 counties.

The New York State Departments of Environmental Conservation and Health are concerned about groundwater contamination in the carbonate-bedrock aquifers with the potential to host karst features throughout New York State, especially relating to the unintended introduction of chemical or agricultural contamination into these aquifers. USGS Scientific Investigations Report, SIR 2020-5030 (Kappel and others, 2020), provides local and State regulators and the public the information needed to determine the extent of carbonate bedrock in New York, the associated environmental impacts of karst, and the means to protect New York’s karst water resources. The four geodatabases presented in this data release were compiled...

A digital representation of closed depression features overlying and adjacent to New York’s carbonate-bedrock aquifers. Includes closed depressions that are both natural and anthropogenic in origin. The features were derived from Digital Raster Graphic (DRG) images of scanned U.S. Geological Survey 1:24,000-scale topographic maps. A DRG is a scanned image of a U.S. Geological Survey topographic map that can be added as a background layer in a GIS. The closed depressions inventoried using DRGs represent features that were not included in the Digital Contour Database. The features were inventoried as points.
