Summary

This data release documents nine Microsoft Excel tables that contain data for understanding groundwater ages in the Glacial aquifer system. Results for the three sample networks (PAS, principal aquifer study; MSS, modeling support study; FPS, flow path study) are described by three tables each: dissolved gas modeling results, environmental tracer concentrations (tritium, tritiogenic helium-3, sulfur hexafluoride, carbon-14, and radiogenic helium-4), and results for the mean age and age distribution. Tables are labeled by network and data type (as described below) separated by an underscore (_). For example, dissolved gas modeling results from the PAS network is label ‘PAS_NGmodel’. Dissolved gas modeling results (NGmodel) contains [...]

Purpose

Dissolved gas and environmental tracer data were collected from drinking-water wells that withdraw water from the Glacial Alluvial aquifer system in 2014 and 2004 to understand the age and vulnerability of the aquifer to natural and anthropogenic contaminants.
