The USGS Water Mission Area is hiring Interdisciplinary Data Scientists and Physical Scientists
On October 13th 2022, we released a new water cycle diagram! This update re-envisions the water cycle, placing human activities at the forefront. We designed it to emphasize scientific accuracy, information design, and usability in educational settings. We hope that students of all ages better understand how humans affect where water is on Earth and how it moves, so that we can work towards using water more sustainably.
Was our launch successful? What’s next?
During the week of October 17th, many links to legacy real-time pages will be redirected to the NextGen monitoring location pages. Legacy pages will be decommissioned in July 2023.
From now until September 30th, 2022, current users of WaterAlert will be able to take 3 simple steps to transfer their alerts to the Next Generation system. Users will receive an email with a unique link to the transition page for their specific alerts. We anticipate this process taking 5 minutes or less for most users.
Have you ever heard of user-centered design? We put our users first in how we design, update, and implement our water data delivery products.
We surveyed current Water Science School users about their experience. Thanks for sharing your feedback with us! Your participation ensures we will continue to meet user needs.
In January, we released the first edition of our new quarterly newsletter to share with the nation all things water data.
Our Next Generation Monitoring Location Pages continue to receive updates based on our priorities and your feedback. Legacy real-time pages will redirect to NextGen pages in September 2022 and legacy pages will be decommissioned in July 2023.
In this webinar, learn how to transition your alerts to Next Generation WaterAlert.
