Summary

This data release documents 155 sets of dissolved noble gas analyses (neon, argon, krypton, xenon) and 153 modeled recharge temperatures for groundwater sampled from domestic water supply wells and springs throughout the northern Sierra Nevada foothills as part of the California State Water Resources Control Board’s Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment (GAMA) Program in 2015-2017. Data from two of the U.S. Geological Survey’s Priority Basin Project Shallow Aquifer Assessment study units are presented here: The Yuba and Bear Watersheds (YB) Shallow Aquifer Study Unit (sampled in 2015-2016) and the Mokelumne, Cosumnes, and American River Watersheds (MCAW) Shallow Aquifer Study Unit (sampled in 2016-2017). The YB and MCAW study [...]

Purpose

This data release reports dissolved noble gas concentrations (neon, argon, krypton, xenon) collected from domestic groundwater wells and springs in the northern Sierra Nevada foothills as part of the California State Water Resources Control Board’s Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment (GAMA) program. Dissolved gas concentrations were used to model groundwater recharge temperatures, which can be used in interpretive reports to characterize groundwater recharge processes.
