This USGS Data Release represents the data used to develop multiple linear regression models for estimating the loads of total nitrogen in small streams. Recursive partitioning and random forest regression were used to assess 85 geospatial, environmental, and watershed variables across 636 small (less than 585 square kilometers) watersheds to determine which variables are fundamentally important to the estimation of annual loads of total nitrogen. These data support the following publication: Kronholm, S.C., Capel, P.D., and Terziotti, Silvia, 2016, Statistically extracted fundamental watershed variables for estimating the loads of total nitrogen in small streams: Environmental Modeling and Assessment, 10 p., http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10666-016-9525-3.

A random forest regression (RFR) model was developed to predict groundwater fluoride concentrations in four western United Stated principal aquifers —California Coastal basin-fill aquifers, Central Valley aquifer system, Basin and Range basin-fill aquifers, and the Rio Grande aquifer system. The selected basin-fill aquifers are a vital resource for drinking-water supplies. The RFR model was developed with a dataset of over 12,000 wells sampled for fluoride between 2000 and 2018. This data release provides rasters of predicted fluoride concentrations at depth typical of domestic and public supply wells in the selected basin-fill aquifers and includes the final RFR model that documents the prediction modeling process...
