Science in Your Watershed

Provided by the US Geological Survey, this Web site is intended to help users "find scientific information organized on a watershed basis" for use in "characterizing, assessing, analyzing, and maintaining the status and health of a watershed." More specifically, Science in Your Watershed "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." Surf Your Watershed is a search tool that allows users to locate a particular watershed by name, general location name, or with maps. Additionally, the site includes dozens of links to related educational information, basic instructions for using GIS-based programs, a Water Glossary, and more. Planners and science researchers alike should find this Web site exceedingly useful.
