Rodriguez, B.D., and Brown, P.J., 2018, Audiomagnetotelluric sounding data, station 9, Taos Plateau Volcanic Field, New Mexico, 2009: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This dataset includes the audio-magnetotelluric (AMT) sounding data collected in 2009 in and near the San Luis Basin, New Mexico. The U.S. Geological Survey conducted a series of multidisciplinary studies, including AMT surveys, in the San Luis Basin to improve understanding of the hydrogeology of the Santa Fe Group and the nature of the sedimentary deposits comprising the principal groundwater aquifers of the Rio Grande rift. The shallow unconfined and the deeper confined Santa Fe Group aquifers in the San Luis Basin are the main sources of municipal water for the region. The population of the San Luis Basin region is growing rapidly and water shortfalls could have serious consequences. Future growth and land management in the region [...]

The purpose of this data release is to provide audio-magnetotelluric (AMT) station locations and data to the public. Detailed geologic mapping, high-resolution airborne magnetic surveys, gravity surveys, an electromagnetic survey, called magnetotellurics (MT), and hydrologic and lithologic data have been used to improve understanding of the aquifer systems. The primary goal of the AMT survey is to map changes in electrical resistivity with depth that are related to differences in rock type. Aquifer properties can be characterized by these variations in rock types.
