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...

Compressional- (P-) wave seismic refraction data were acquired in December 2018 and July 2019 along fourteen profiles within the spillway of Success Dam in Porterville, California. A new concrete ogee weir is planned for construction within the existing spillway, and the P-wave seismic velocity models will be used to inform further geotechnical investigations, including siting new geologic borings, and the advanced engineering design phases in terms of rock rippability and relative rock hardness/competency. Data acquisition, processing, and modeling were conducted collaboratively between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Sacramento District. Data were acquired with Geometrics...

Electrical resistivity results from two regional airborne electromagnetic (AEM) surveys (Minsley et al. 2021 and Burton et al. 2021) over the Mississippi Alluvial Plain (MAP) were combined by the U.S. Geological Survey to produce three-dimensional (3D) gridded models and derivative hydrogeologic products. Grids were discretized in the horizontal dimension to align with the 1 kilometer (km) x 1 km National Hydrogeologic Grid (NHG; Clark et al. 2018), and vertically discretized into both 5 meter (m) depth slices and 5 m elevation slices. Ten “facies classes” were defined to categorize materials expected to have similar hydrologic and geologic properties based on their electrical resistivity (i.e. low classes correspond...

Towed transient electromagnetic (tTEM) data were acquired along levees at select area near Vicksburg, Mississippi during March 2018. During the survey, 13.7 line-kilometers were collected in the focus area. Data were collected by members of the U.S. Geological Survey, Technology Development and Transfer Team, and the Aarhus University Hydrogeophysics Group. tTEM data acquired along the approximately 14 line-kilometers atop and along the toe of a levee near the banks of the Mississippi River in Warren County, Mississippi. Data were collected to characterize the subsurface resistivity structure of levees in support of a technical demonstration for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. tTEM data were collected using an...

Eleven ERT profiles were acquired along the right (west) abutment, and immediately downstream, of the concrete, fixed-crest spillway located west of the lock to map geologic structure at depths up to 50 meters (m) using the Advanced Geosciences, Inc. SuperSting R8 resistivity meter. This data release includes the raw and processed resistivity data as well as inverted resistivity models. All are provided as digital data, and...

Electrical resistivity results from two regional airborne electromagnetic (AEM) surveys (Minsley et al. 2021, and Burton et al. 2021) over the Mississippi Alluvial Plain (MAP) were combined by the U.S. Geological Survey to produce three-dimensional (3D) gridded models and derivative hydrogeologic products. The 3D elevation grid was used to quantify across the MAP region 1) the occurrence and thickness of surficial (< 15 meter (m) depth) confining material, 2) the top and bottom elevation corresponding to the surficial confining material, and 3) a metric representing the degree of surface confinement or connectivity that ranges from fully confining conditions to high potential hydrologic connectivity. These products...
