Water-borne continuous resistivity profiling data from select streams of the Mississippi Alluvial Plain in northwestern Mississippi
This data release consists of two different datasets, waterborne resistivity profiling data and water quality data collected during profiling. In fresh water aquifers, the geoelectric resistivity of earth materials commonly has a positive correlation with hydraulic conductivity. In June 2016, continuous resistivity profiling data were collected, as a proxy for streambed hydraulic conductivity, along selected reaches of three rivers in the Delta region of Mississippi. A total of 180 kilometers (km) of continuous resistivity profiles were collected during a two-week span, with 50 km on the Quiver River, 70 km on the Sunflower River, and 60 km on the Tallahatchie River. These river reaches were selected due to groundwater...
