Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the California State Water Resources Control Board and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management compiled and analyzed data for mapping groundwater salinity and characterizing aquifer systems in and around selected oil and gas fields in California. Data were collected for the Poso Creek oil field area which includes well construction data, production and injection volumes, oil show data, digitized borehole geophysical data, geochemical analyses of produced water from oil and gas wells and water well samples, geological formation depths, core sample analyses, and geophysical data associated with estimating groundwater total dissolved solids (TDS) of formation water. All data reported here [...]
