Summary

This dataset includes measured water-levels, water-level contours, aerial thermal infrared (TIR) imagery, and a stream centerline that were used to describe groundwater movement and interaction with surface water between the lower Platte and lower Elkhorn Rivers upstream of their confluence. The study design described herein focused on understanding seasonal characteristics of groundwater movement and interaction with surface water during periods of high groundwater demand (June through August) and low groundwater demand (all other months). Measured groundwater level and surface-water level data were collected during a low groundwater demand period in fall of 2016 and a high groundwater demand period in summer of 2017. Two sets [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this data set is to increase scientific understanding and provide support for any future streamflow augmentation projects by focusing on the understanding of seasonal characteristics of groundwater movement and interaction with surface water during periods of high groundwater demand (June through August) and low groundwater demand (all other months).
