These pages provide access to water-resources data collected at approximately 1.5 million sites in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Online access to this data is organized around the categories listed to the left.
The USGS investigates the occurrence, quantity, quality, distribution, and movement of surface and underground waters and disseminates the data to the public,...

Fire Research And Management Exchange System (FRAMES) provides a method of exchanging information and transferring technology among wildland fire researchers, managers, and other stakeholders in an online environment. The FRAMES portal provides essential searchable information, a platform for data sharing and storage, development of new tools, and support to federal wildland fire management agencies in the United States throughout the various stages of wildland fire, including planning,...
National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) has 12 regional offices across the country, each of which is responsible for the statistical work in several states. NASS conducts hundreds of surveys every year and prepares reports covering virtually every aspect of U.S. agriculture. Production and supplies of food and fiber, prices paid and received by farmers, farm labor and wages, farm finances, chemical use, and changes in the demographics of U.S. producers are only a few examples.
Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes (CW3E) mission is to provide 21st Century water cycle science, technology and outreach to support effective policies and practices that address the impacts of extreme weather and water events on the environment, people and the economy of Western North America.
CW3E observation and forecast datasets include integrated water transport, integrated water vapor, precipitation, snow, temperature, winds and height, isotherm, meteograms, and...
The Climate Prediction Center has developed monthly and seasonal tools are based on the Constructed Analog on Soil Moisture (CAS). Note that both of these are only forecast tools. They may be used in making the official outlooks that go out to the public, but are not official forecasts in their own right.

United State Drought Monitor mapviewer – visualize drought and climate information through interactive mapping of information from the National Intergrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) and their partners
The NLDAS experimental drought monitor is derived from near real-time soil moisture output from both the NASA MOSAIC and NCEP Noah land surface models. The anomalies and percentiles are based on a 28 year climatology (1980 - 2007). Two separate climatology files are used; one for the calculation of anomalies, and one for the calculation of percentiles. The anomaly climatology file contains 1 soil moisture value per day (daily average over 28 years) for each gridbox. The percentile...
