The Northeast Archeological Resources Program (NARP) supports archeological resource planning, research, and baseline inventory and evaluation of archeological resources in the Interior Region 1 North Atlantic-Appalachian (formerly Northeast Region). NARP uses a suite of tools in their work with archeological resources including Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS), with an integrated program of remote sensing to contribute to the enhancement of arc

The Beaver Creek Petroglyph Site (48BH4293) is an undocumented rock art site containing some 26 panels of pictographs and petroglyphs that span from Early Hunting to En-Toto Pecked to Mountain Foothill Traditions.
Coastal erosion, exacerbated by sea-level rise, threatens natural, cultural, and recreation resources in the King Range National Conservation Area (NCA) on the northern California coast. Within this otherwise steep landscape, the flat coastal terrace provides a suitable location for recreation infrastructure, including two historic lighthouses and the popular Lost Coast Trail.
Using close-range photography to create finely detailed 3D models of culturally significant archeological sites facilitates both documentation and research. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Buffalo Field Office hosted its 14th Volunteer Archeology Project the week of June 26, 2022, utilizing the Passport in Time (PIT) program.
Twenty years ago, ecological studies were often limited by the number of times biologists could find (relocate) their study animals. With the advent and now widespread use of Global Positioning System (GPS)collars, tracking the animals is no longer a primary concern.
BOEM is required to analyze the air quality impacts from Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas activities as mandated by the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
Public lands across the West contain myriad Native American cultural sites that often include surficial stone features such as rings, alignments, and cairns.
As part of a broader trial of noninvasive methods to research wild wolves (Canis lupus) in the Superior National Forest (SNF), Minnesota, the USGS Wolf and Deer Project (Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center) explored whether wolves could be remotely monitored using a new, inexpensive (approximately $80 USD in 2019), remotely deployable, passive acoustic recording device.
The Delaware River Basin is an important water resource for Philadelphia and other cities in the region. It was chosen to demonstrate USGS’s model integration efforts to investigate the relationships among water use, land cover, and climate to assess and forecast the impact of changes in these parameters on the environment and water resources.
