The table contains oxide and cation compositions of olivine grains from drill core of the Duluth Complex, Minnesota. The oxides were determined by electron probe microanalysis (EPMA) and are reported in weight percent (wt%). The cations were calculated based on the oxide compositions and are reported in mole percent (mol%). Olivine is a magnesium iron orthosilicate mineral with the formula (Mg2+, Fe2+)2SiO4. Olivine forms a solid solution series with magnesium (Mg) at one end and iron (Fe) at the other. Forsterite (Mg2SiO4) is the magnesium endmember and fayalite (Fe2SiO4) is the iron endmember. Minor elements can substitute into the crystal structure, such as manganese (Mn) and nickel (Ni). To better understand...

Data include Rhodamine WT dye concentrations measured every 3 or 10 minutes by means of Turner Designs C-3 and C-6 fluorometers with internal dataloggers at three fixed locations on the Des Plaines River (DPR) (DP-1, DP-2, and DP-3); in three groundwater monitoring wells (ACL-1, WP10-85, and WP9-275); and at two fixed locations on the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal (CSSC) (SC-1 and SC-2) (see included Google Earth file AllDeployments_Locations.kmz). The detection limit for these fluorometers is reported to be 0.01 parts per billion (ppb). However, the fluorometer readings were affected by turbidity, and readings of less than about 1.0 part per billion (ppb) were considered to have been influenced by turbidity and...

The study at Lemont replicated and expanded upon seismic data collected at that location in 2011 as well as evaluated the pressure field created in the water by the water gun. The replicate data were collected with the water gun placements and input pressure identical to the 2011 study, but added static underwater pressure monitoring. Two 80-in³ water guns were suspended below a platform at depths of 4 and 14 feet. Pressure values were lower when only the gun suspended at 4 feet was fired as compared to firing the single gun at 14 feet and both guns simultaneously, with the latter two producing similar pressures. Data were collected to assess the pressure field produced by two 80-in³ water guns suspended at a depth...

These data files include georeferenced water-quality data with associated time stamps (Central Standard Time) for basic water-quality parameters as measured by a towed multiparameter sonde (YSI 6920 sonde) from a manned boat in the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal. Data were collected on February 25-27, 2010, and again on March 2-3, 2010. The data collected in February 2010 had the sonde on a fixed mount about 1 foot below the surface. The data collected in March 2010 had the sonde on a towed cable about 7-9 feet below the surface. All data have been edited and reviewed. Omitted data have been flagged with a data value of -9999 in the data files.
