The temperature and surface geophysical data contained in this release have primarily been collected to support groundwater/surface water methods development, and to characterize the hydrogeological controls on native brook trout habitat. All data have been collected since 2010 along the Quashnet River corridor located on Cape Cod, MA, USA. Cape Cod is a peninsula in southeastern coastal Massachusetts, USA, composed primarily of highly permeable unconsolidated glacial moraine and outwash deposits. The largest of the Cape Cod sole-source aquifers occupies a western (landward) section of the peninsula, and is incised by several linear valleys that drain groundwater south to the Atlantic Ocean via baseflow-dominated...

Passive seismic data collection was done northwest of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Edwards Air Force Base using the horizontal-to-vertical spectral ratio (HVSR) technique. HVSR surveys were done at 43 locations between May and September 2018 to refine the understanding of the bedrock-alluvial aquifer transition zone downgradient from the AFRL. Specifically, the data were collected to help determine the depth to bedrock. The HVSR method is a passive seismic technique that uses a three-component seismometer to measure the vertical and horizontal components of ambient seismic noise. Seismic noise in the range of ~0.1 to 1 Hertz (Hz) is caused by ocean waves, large regional storms, and tectonic sources....

These data were compiled as part of a larger study to evaluate post-stocking survival of hatchery-reared Roundtail Chub. We conducted a two year study (Dec. 2015 – Mar. 2017) in the upper Verde River at the Burnt Ranch stocking location near Paulden, Arizona. Young of year Roundtail Chub were acquired from the Arizona Research and Conservation Center in Cornville, Arizona. Passive integrated transponder (PIT) tags (BioMark, 12.5 mm 134.2 kHz FDX) were implanted into Roundtail Chub each year (n = 333, Year 1; n = 2177, Year 2) prior to stocking. Each year, fish were measured (total length, TL, mm) before release (reflected in Pre-Stocking data table). We used two methods to recapture stocked fish, one passive and...

Common offset ground penetrating radar (GPR) data were collected to image near surface streambed structure. These data are to be used in conjunction with fiber-optic distributed temperature sensing (FO-DTS) and electromagnetic imaging (EMI) data. The combined dataset represents point in time mapping of preferential groundwater discharge points (FO-DTS) and the bed structure that controls where these points are located (GPR, EMI).

Time-domain electromagnetic (TEM) surveys were done northwest of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Edwards Air Force Base. TEM surveys were done at 33 locations between May and October 2018 to refine the understanding of the bedrock-alluvial aquifer transition zone downgradient from the AFRL. TEM surveys (also called transient electromagnetic surveys) provide 1D resistivity soundings of the subsurface, which can be related to lithology and hydrogeology. In the TEM method, electrical current is cycled through a transmitter loop (Tx) wire, which in turn produces a primary magnetic field. When the current is abruptly terminated, a secondary magnetic field is induced in the earth, and it moves downward and...

A suite of geophysical methods was used along the Cedar River in Cedar Rapids, Iowa to support the hydrogeologic characterization of the alluvial aquifer associated with the river and to assess the area for suitability for larger-scale airborne geophysics. The aquifer is comprised of sand and gravel, interbedded with finer sediments, and underlain by carbonate-dominated bedrock. The aquifer is the principal source of municipal drinking water for the City of Cedar Rapids. The raw data provided here includes waterborne continuous resistivity profiling (CRP) and continuous seismic profiling (CSP) data (collected at the same time), electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) profiles, and horizontal-to-vertical spectral...

As part of their Watershed Function Scientific Focus Area (SFA), Berkeley Lab and its collaborating institutions (e.g., USGS) have established a "Community Watershed" in the headwaters of the East River near Crested Butte, Colorado (USA), designed to quantify processes impacting the ability of mountainous systems to retain and release water, nutrients, carbon, and metals. The ongoing research spans a range of scales from hillslope to catchment to basin, with surface water and groundwater linking multiple geomorphic compartments. A major goal of this SFA research is to generate a transferable understanding of mountain hillslope to river dissolved nutrient, carbon, and metals transport, integrating extensive and novel...

Hand-carried frequency domain electromagnetic imaging (EMI) data were collected along the Sanuit River to indicate changes in streambed water quality and/or near surface sediments. These data are to be used in conjunction with fiber-optic distributed temperature sensing (FO-DTS) and ground penetrating radar (GPR) data. The combined dataset represents point in time mapping of preferential groundwater discharge points (FO-DTS), and the bed structure that controls where these points are located (GPR, EMI).

In April 2015, approximately 19 miles of continuous resistivity profiling (CRP) surveys were collected on the Cedar River in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The CRP method was used to characterize the resistivity of the water column and subbottom materials. Five CRP profiles were collected concurrently with the continuous seismic methods. For this investigation, 11 electrodes spaced 10 m apart and mounted in a streamer were towed behind the boat and data were collected using the dipole-dipole array type. The first two electrodes, closest to the boat, were used to inject current into the water and subbottom materials, and eight electrical potential measurements were made using the remaining nine electrodes. With this system,...

Tracking changes in bulk electrical conductivity (EC) during tracer tests in saturated sediments allows for direct observation of both mobile and less-mobile pore space exchange dynamics. Electrode arrays made up of four stainless steel rods (insulated with the exception of exposed 0.5 cm tips) were installed vertically at depths of interest and apparent electrical resistivity data (the inverse of bulk EC) were collected using a Wenner configuration with an AGI SuperSting R8 meter. The Bulk EC data are described and listed within the files below. Controlled, downward flow experiments were conducted in Dual-domain porosity apparatus (DDPA). Downward flow rates ranged from 1.2 to 1.4 m/d in DDPA1 and at 1 m/d, 3 m/d,...
Wind erosion researchers need field equipment and techniques for ascertaining threshold wind velocities and the amount and vertical distribution of the eroded soil particles. To detect moving soil particles and field erosion, sensors and soil samplers to measure surface creep and airborne particles have been developed. A power expression will describe the variation in amounts of suspended material to a 2-m height. The quantity of material (f) and height of material (y) within the saltation zone can be explained by the expression f = f ~ ( l - ~ / o ) $ where "fo" is surface creep, o is height below which 50% of the total mass flow occurs in the saltation process, and is the slope of the line. With this equipment...

Heat is used as a tracer for a variety of physical hydrogeological process. For ongoing studies related to groundwater/surface water exchange, temperatures of streambed sediment along the bank, in drainage ditches, and in the river were measured using handheld thermal infrared (FLIR Systems, Inc) cameras and thermocouple (Digi-Sense, Inc) probes. Thermal surveys of the Quashnet river were completed from August 14 to August 25, 2017. Zones of spatially-preferential groundwater discharge were identified as cold anomalies in summer, reflecting the influence from groundwater temperatures of approximately 11 degrees Celsius.

The data set includes temperature data from the base of the water column along the sediment interface of the East River near Crested Butte Colorado, USA, in support of ongoing study regarding groundwater/surface water exchange. The data were collected from 08/09/2016 to 08/31/2016 using a fiber-optic distributed temperature sensing system that has 1.01 m spatial resolution along the linear fiber-optic cable. During data analysis, the original 10 min measurments were averaged (arithmetic mean) for the entire period to potentially indicate colder groundwater inflows. Additionally, the standard devation for the entire measurement period for each distance along the cable was calculated to indicate buffered zones (reduced...

Surface geophysical tools remotely sense hydrogeological properties that can control subsurface flow and water quality. There are numerous geophysical tools, for the Quashnet River work we have principally used ground penetrating radar (GPR) and electromagnetic imaging (EMI). The instruments are either hand carried or floated down the stream channel and other cross-sections of the river corridor. Data from various field deployments of GPR and EMI are described and presented here.

The Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife has been studying brook trout populations in Cape Cod groundwater-fed river systems for decades. Recently, a notable reduction in trout population in the Santuit River sparked the concern of several groups, including the Wampanoag Tribe. Brook trout population dynamics may be tied to water quality and temperature changes, which are both impacted by spatially preferential groundwater discharge to the river. The streambed interface temperature and near-surface geophysical data compiled in this data release were collected in summer 2018 as part of a larger effort to characterize the spatial distribution of groundwater discharge zones, and exchanges with surface water,...
