These datasets contain modeling files and GIS data associated with a risk assessment study for the Cambrian-Ordovician sandstone aquifer system in Illinois from predevelopment (1863) to the year 2070. Modeling work was completed using the Illinois Groundwater Flow Model, a regional MODFLOW model developed for water supply planning in Illinois, as a base model. The model is run using the graphical user interface Groundwater Vistas 7.0. The development and technical details of the base Illinois Groundwater Flow Model, including hydraulic property zonation, boundary conditions, hydrostratigraphy, solver settings, and discretization, are described in Abrams et al. (2018). Modifications to this base model (the version presented here) are described in Mannix et al. (2018), Hadley et al. (2020) and Abrams and Cullen (2020). Modifications include removal of particular multi-aquifer wells to improve calibration, changing Sandwich Fault Zone properties to achieve calibration at production wells within and near the fault zone, and the incorporation of demand scenarios based on a participatory modeling project with the Southwest Water Planning Group. The zipped folder of model files contains MODFLOW input (package) files, Groundwater Vistas files, and a head file for the entire model run. The zipped folder of GIS data contains rasters of: simulated drawdown in the St. Peter sandstone from predevelopment to 2018, simulated drawdown in the Ironton-Galesville sandstone from predevelopment to 2018, simulated head difference between the St. Peter and Ironton-Galesville sandstone units in 2018, simulated head above the top of the St. Peter sandstone for the years 2029, 2050, and 2070, and simulated head above the top of the Ironton-Galesville sandstone for the years 2029, 2050, and 2070. Raster outputs were derived directly from the simulated heads in the Illinois Groundwater Flow Model. Rasters are clipped to the 8 county northeastern Illinois region (Cook, DuPage, Grundy, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and Will counties). Well names, historic and current head targets, and spatial offsets for the Illinois Groundwater Flow Model are available upon request via a data license agreement. Please contact authors to set this up if needed.

Total nitrogen leaching rates were calculated over the Mississippi Atchafalaya River Basin (MARB) using an integrated economic-biophysical modeling approach. Land allocation for corn production and total nitrogen application rates were calculated for crop reporting districts using the Biofuel and Environmental Policy Analysis Model (BEPAM) for 5 RFS2 policy scenarios. These were used as input in the Integrated BIosphere Simulator-Agricultural Version (Agro-IBIS) and the Terrestrial Hydrologic Model with Biogeochemistry (THMB) to calculate the nitrogen loss. Land allocation and total nitrogen application simulations were simulated for the period 2016-2030 for 303 crop reporting districts (https://www.nass.usda.gov/Data_and_Statistics/County_Data_Files/Frequently_Asked_Questions/county_list.txt). The final 2030 values are reported here. Both are stored in csv files. Units for land allocation are million ha and nitrogen application are million kg. The nitrogen leaching rates were modeled with a spatial resolution of 5' x 5' using the North American Datum of 1983 projection and stored in NetCDF files. The 30-year average is calculated over the last 30 years of the 45 years being simulated. Leaching rates are calculated in kg-N/ha.

This dataset is associated with a larger manuscript published in 2022 in the Illinois Natural History Survey Bulletin to summarize all known records for nonindigenous aquatic mollusks in Illinois, and full sources are referenced within the manuscript. We examined museum holdings, literature accounts, publicly available databases sponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) - Nonindigenous Aquatic Species program (http://nas.er.usgs.gov/.) and InvertEBase (invertebase.org). We also included sporadic field survey data of encounters of nonindigenous aquatic species from colleagues within the Illinois Natural History Survey, Illinois Department of Natural Resources, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, county forest preserve districts, and other natural resource agencies about their encounters with nonindigenous aquatic mollusk species. Lastly, we examined the role and utility of citizen-science data to document occurrences of nonindigenous aquatic mollusk species. We queried iNaturalist (www.inaturalist.org) for all available nonindigenous freshwater mollusk data for Illinois. Table heading descriptions (if not intuitive) are: “INHS verified” is whether an INHS staff member verified the record by observing vouchered specimen or photograph; “Source” is where a record was accessed or obtained; “individualCount” is number collected or observed in a record; “MuseumCode” is standard museum abbreviation or acronym; “Institution” is source that housed or reported a record, and this also includes the spelled-out museum code; “Collectors” typically indicates who collected the specimen or voucher; “Lat_Long determined by” denotes whether collection coordinates were stated by the collector or by a curator (using inference from data available); “fieldNumber” typically indicates a unique field number that a collector may have used in the field; “identifiedBy” typically explains who identified a specimen or verified a specimen identification.

This dataset is for the publication "Do Nearctic hover flies (Diptera: Syrphidae) engage in long-distance migration? An assessment of evidence and mechanisms." It consists of 11 Excel spreadsheets and 4 R scripts which correspond to the analyses which were conducted. Paper abstract: Long-distance insect migration is poorly understood despite its tremendous ecological and economic importance. As a group, Nearctic hover flies (Diptera: Syrphidae: Syrphinae), which are crucial pollinators as adults and biological control agents as larvae, are almost entirely unrecognized as migratory despite examples of highly migratory behavior among several Palearctic species. Here, we examined evidence and mechanisms of migration for four hover fly species (Allograpta obliqua, Eupeodes americanus, Syrphus rectus, and Syrphus ribesii) common throughout eastern North America using stable hydrogen isotope (δ2H) measurements of chitinous tissue, morphological assessments, abundance estimations, and cold-tolerance assays. While further studies are needed, non-local isotopic values obtained from hover fly specimens collected in central Illinois support the existence of long-distance fall migratory behavior in Eu. americanus, and to a lesser extent S. ribesii and S. rectus. Elevated abundance of Eu. americanus during the expected autumn migratory period further supports the existence of such behavior. Moreover, high phenotypic plasticity of morphology associated with dispersal coupled with significant differences between local and non-local specimens suggest that Eu. americanus exhibits a unique suite of morphological traits that decrease costs associated with long-distance flight. Finally, compared to the ostensibly non-migratory A. obliqua, Eu. americanus was less cold tolerant, a factor that may be associated with migratory behavior. Collectively, our findings imply that fall migration occurs in Nearctic hover flies, but we consider methodological limitations of our study in addition to potential ecological and economic consequences of these novel findings.
