Shallow soil characteristics were mapped near Shellmound, Mississippi, using the DualEM 421 electromagnetic sensor in October 2018. Data were acquired by towing the DualEM sensor on a wheeled cart behind an ATV, with the sensor at a height of 0.432 meters (m) above the ground surface. Approximately 175 line-kilometers of data were acquired over an area of nearly four square kilometers, with 25 m separation between survey lines. Data were manually edited for noise sources such as powerlines or other buried structures, and averaged to regular output soundings every 5 m along survey lines. This data release contains the processed data that have been averaged and culled to produce final resistivity models. Digital data...

This dataset is the raster, in feet, of the potentiometric-surface map, spring 2018, Mississippi River Valley alluvial (MRVA) aquifer. The raster cell size is 1,000 meters; the raster altitude data was referenced to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88). The raster was interpolated using (1) most of the available groundwater-altitude data from wells and surface-water-altitude data from streamgages, and (2) potentiometric-surface contours.
This file contains site identification information of streamgages and paired wells to the streamgages operated by the U.S. Geological Survey in the State of Mississippi and within the Mississippi Alluvial Plain to monitor shallow groundwater conditions and aid in understanding the interaction between groundwater and surface water. Useful background on pairing groundwater and surface-water monitoring is provided by Constantz and others (2012). Differing scientific purposes of modeling or statistical studies could benefit from the identification of these sites for isolation or removal from comprehensive groundwater-level data projects for the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer.

This dataset is a point shapefile of wells measured for the potentiometric surface maps of the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer (MRVA) in Spring 2016, 2018, and 2020. The data provided for each well considered in the applicable potentiometric surface map are the water-level date, altitude [relative to the North American vertical datum of 1988 (NAVD88)], a useYYYY code (which is positive if the water level was used in the potentiometric surface map for that year), a use comment (which is populated for water levels not used), and the water-level change values, for 2016-18, 2018-20, and 2016-20 for water levels with positive useYYYY codes for the applicable years. The data provided for each streamgage considered...

This dataset is a raster surface, in feet, of the depth to water, spring 2020, Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer (MRVA). The raster cell size is 1,000 meters (3,280.8 ft). The raster was interpolated using (1) depth-to-water (GW_D2W) data from wells and (2) an assumed value of zero for depth to water at streamgages (SW_D2W) because the precise depth to groundwater at the streamgage is not known..The streamgage data is used only when it appears the regional aquifer and surface water are hydrologically connected.

The Mississippi Alluvial Plain (MAP) has become one of the most important agricultural regions in the US, and it relies heavily on a groundwater system that is poorly understood and shows signs of substantial change. The heavy use of the available groundwater resources has resulted in significant groundwater-level declines and reductions in base flow in streams within the MAP. These impacts are limiting well production and threatening future water-availability for the region. This product will help not only scientists in our center, but also at a national level. This product will also be part of a larger study encompassing the Mississippi Alluvial Plain region. The Mississippi Alluvial Plain extent was delineated...

This dataset contains surface-water-altitude (SWA) data from streamgages that was used or considered to create a potentiometric-surface map for the Mississippi River Valley alluvial (MRVA) aquifer for spring 2018. The surface-water-altitude data was referenced to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88). The streamgages are measured continuously. The streamgage measurement that was used was from early April 2018 and is an estimate of the groundwater altitudes at the gage location. The resultant potentiometric-surface contours and raster represents the generalized central tendency for spring 2018, but it would not be useful for some purposes, such as for calibration of a groundwater-flow model for early...

Airborne electromagnetic (AEM), magnetic, and radiometric data were acquired November 2019 to March 2020 along 24,030 line-kilometers (line-km) over the Mississippi Alluvial Plain (MAP). Data were acquired by CGG Canada Services, Ltd. with three different airborne sensors: the CGG Canada Services, Ltd. TEMPEST time-domain AEM instrument that is used to map subsurface geologic structure at depths up to 300 meters (m), depending on the subsurface resistivity; a Scintrex CS-3 cesium vapor magnetometer that detects changes in deep (hundreds of meters to kilometers) geologic structure based on variations in the magnetic properties of different formations; and a Radiation Solutions RS-500 spectrometer that detects the...

This dataset contains the contours, in feet, of the potentiometric-surface, spring 2020, Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer (MRVA). The contours are referenced to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88). The contours were derived from most of the available groundwater-altitude (GWA) data from wells and surface-water-altitude (SWA) data from streamgages, measured in for spring 2020. The potentiometric contours ranged from 10 to 340 feet (3 to 104 meters) above NAVD 88. The regional direction of groundwater flow was generally towards the south-southwest, except in areas of groundwater-altitude depressions, where groundwater flows into the depressions, and near rivers, where groundwater flow generally...

During the spring and summer of 2020, the U.S. Geological Survey, Lower Mississippi – Gulf Water Science Center, conducted single well slug tests on selected wells within the Mississippi Alluvial Plain in Arkansas and Mississippi to estimate hydraulic conductivity (K) and transmissivity (T) values for the aquifers in which the wells are screened. A total of 324 tests were conducted on 48 wells. The computer software AQTESOLV version 4.50.002 (HydroSOLVE, Inc., 2007) was used to interpret the slug test data to estimate K and T values. Mean estimates of K for the 44 wells screened in the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer ranged from 3 to 401 feet per day (ft/day) and mean estimates of T ranged from 285 to...
