This is the root collection resource for management of all weather, hydrologic and related population health and drinking water baseline data collected before and after Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. This collection holds numerous Collections and composite resources comprising 1) Environmental data related to Hurricane Maria, including meteorological data, precipitation, stream sensor and chemistry data, soil sensor data, and cloud monitoring data (ceilometer and cloud camera data) – as available given that some sensors were damaged or destroyed during the hurricane; 2) Data Sharing Agreements for the use of private and confidential water resources and health data for conducting research in a HIPAA-compliant manner, 3) Drinking Water Sample Data including analytical results from water quality samples collected after Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico from public drinking water sources. Analytical results include laboratory analyses for waterborne pathogens and inorganics parameters. All derived data, including analytical results, metadata, and the methods employed to collect the data adhere to standard methods for water analysis and the standards outlined by the Genomic Standards Consortium and/or Standard Methods for Examination of Water and Wastewater; 4) Geospatial Data includes roads and road closure information, Safe Drinking Water Information System point locations of Community and Public Water Systems, locations of 69 hospitals in Puerto Rico, mudslide locations and landslide hazards obtained from the USGS, and storm deforestation rasters generated from satellite data. The data providers for this collection include the Luquillo Critical Zone Observatory, NOAA National Weather Service, NOAA National Water Center, FEMA, Department of Homeland Security, Kaiser Permanente, and many others. Help Sara! Does this make sense?

There are separate collections for Hurricanes Harvey (https://www.hydroshare.org/resource/544f1afd7c0e42a49b8e59737a660bfd/) and Irma (https://www.hydroshare.org/resource/f9635d1c216d4c63b303ab1c655986e8/). Resources from 2017 US Hurricanes may also be shared with The CUAHSI 2017 Hurricane Data Community group (https://www.hydroshare.org/group/41) to make them accessible to interested researchers, and anyone may join this group. Resources related to 2017 Hurricane Maria impacts and ongoing drinking water studies may be shared with the Puerto Rico Water Studies Group (https://www.hydroshare.org/group/43) to make them accessible to interested researchers, and anyone may join this group.

This collection has been produced by a Collaborative Research grant by the US National Science Foundation RAPID Award "Building Infrastructure to Prevent Disasters Like Hurricane Maria" (ID 1810647) in collaboration with the RAPID Award "Archiving and Enabling Community Access to Data from Recent US Hurricanes" (ID 1761673).
