Eight U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) field crews are traveling around the Jacksonville, Tampa and Fort Myers, Fla., areas looking for evidence that will tell scientists how high the flood waters and storm surge from Hurricane Irma reached.
About two-thirds of beaches from North Carolina to Maryland have a high probability of eroding as Hurricane Maria moves up the coast, according to the latest U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) coastal change forecast. Approximately 15 percent of that same shoreline has a high probability of experiencing overwash, where surge and waves overtop dunes.
MODFLOW 6, the newest version of the world’s most widely used groundwater modeling software, is now available for download from the U.S. Geological Survey.
Digital borehole geophysical logs and related data files are now easily accessible through GeoLog Locator, a new web-based, map view and retrieval tool developed by the U.S. Geological Survey.
Large and powerful Hurricane Irma is likely to cause significant erosion along U.S. East Coast beaches from Florida through South Carolina, according to a new projection from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
Five U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) crews installed around 20 storm-tide sensors along the Texas coastline within the areas between San Luis Pass and Corpus Christi. The equipment will be installed on bridges, piers and other structures that have a good chance of surviving a storm surge during a hurricane.
New projections from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) indicate Hurricane Harvey is likely to cause significant beach erosion along the Texas coastline, with water overtopping dunes and in some cases inundating areas.
As part of an ongoing effort to improve the suite of hydrography web-based map services, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) will separate the services for the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) and Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD).
