Summary

In cooperation with more than 10 local, State, and Federal stakeholders, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) is studying the aquifer systems in and near the Mississippi River alluvial plain (https://www2.usgs.gov/water/lowermississippigulf/map/index.html). This data release consists of continuous resistivity profiling (CRP) data collected by the USGS to characterize the electrical properties of geomorphological features in the part of the Mississippi River alluvial plain from Money, Miss. to Steiner, Miss. A total of 68 kilometers of multiple CRP profiles were obtained. The CRP data were collected by using the Ohmmapper TR-5 system (Geometrics, Inc., 2016) to determine if different geomorphological features in the study could [...]

Purpose

This data release documents 68 kilometers of multiple CRP profile data collected by the USGS to characterize the electrical properties of geomorphological features in the part of the Mississippi River alluvial plain from Money, Miss. to Steiner, Miss. The information obtained from the CRP profiles are intended to augment the information available from existing geologic maps. Although geologic maps of surficial expressions of geomorphological features in the study area exist, little is known about the spatial variability within a particular feature; therefore, local-scale variations in recharge in the study area may not be adequately represented by the large-scale surficial expressions of geomorphological features available in existing geologic maps. Any use of trade, product, or firm names is for descriptive purposes only and does not imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.
