Summary

This metadata record documents 8 comma delimitated files that support the USGS Scientific Investigations Report 2018-5020 on field studies in the Bucks Branch watershed and the Andover Branch watershed. Data were collected from two fields at two locations and include: groundwater, soil water, soils and plant tissue chemistry. Data also include sulfur hexafluoride and dissolved gas concentrations used in age dating of groundwater.

Purpose

Data were collected to characterize groundwater chemistry below two grain production farms within the Chesapeake Bay watershed on the Delmarva Peninsula. The ultimate aim of this work was to characterize nitrogen movement from land surface to groundwater under irrigated and non-irrigated (dryland) field conditions.
