Science in Your Watershed

Welcome to the U.S. Geological Survey's "Science in Your Watershed" Web site. The purpose of this site is to help you find scientific information organized on a watershed basis. This information, coupled with observations and measurements made by the watershed groups, provides a powerful foundation for characterizing, assessing, analyzing, and maintaining the status and health of a watershed.

Discussions with watershed groups across the country resulted in this web site. This web site provides access to:

  • Map Your Watershed - use the mapping interface to locate your watershed and link to additional information from your watershed.
  • Information Discovery - find projects, publications, and databases related to your watershed, and
  • Data Integration - learn more about how you can use scientific data to understand your watershed.
The web site provides rudiments of a decision-support process by making accessible recent case studies of projects that have occurred, publications produced, databases and information assembled, and providing access to free and nearly free software tools for manipulating spatial information.

The column on the left serves as your guide to this site.

Watershed Information Network

[Gateways to watershed information] The Watershed Information Network symbol on the right identifies 3 websites cooperating to provide watershed information:
  • Know Your Watershed is run by the Conservation Technology Information Center. It focuses on a registry of watershed partnerships working to meet local goals.
  • Surf Your Watershed is run by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It provides a service to help you locate, use, and share environmental information about your place.
  • Science in Your Watershed (this site) is run by the U.S. Geological Survey. It's focus is on bringing you scientific information such as streamflow organized by watershed.
Though each site is responsible for its own content, they are linked together through the unique Hydrologic Unit Code for each watershed. The Watershed Information Network symbol is an imagemap. Clicking on the Watershed Information Network symbol will move you to a corresponding page in the "Know," "Surf," or "Science" site.

The Watershed Information Network symbol is still being added to pages on the 3 sites. If you don't see it, please look for other watershed links.
