DeSimone, L.A., Degnan, J.R., and Clark, S.F., 2017, Bedrock well yield, ancillary data, and lineaments, in the Nashoba terrane, central and eastern Massachusetts: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This data release contains well yield and ancillary data for 7,287 bedrock wells used in an analysis of bedrock well yield in the Nashoba Terrane and surrounding area in eastern and central Massachusetts. The data release also contains Geographic Information System (GIS) data layers of lineaments delineated from aerial photographs and digital elevation data for a part of the Nashoba Terrane study area. Ancillary data consist of well depth; bedrock geology, surficial geology, topographic setting, and wetlands at the well location; distance of the well to hydrologic and geologic features; and distance of the well to lineaments. The data were interpreted in U.S. Geological Survey Scientific-Investigations Report 2012-5155, and a data [...]

These data were compiled to support an analysis of well yield for the fractured-rock aquifers of the Nashoba terrane and surrounding area in central and eastern Massachusetts. The analysis included a description of well-yield data, development and analysis of factors potentially affecting well yield, and geostatistical analysis.
