Direct-push sediment cores, resistivity profiles, and depth-averaged resistivity collected for Platte River Recovery and Implementation Program in Phelps County, Nebraska
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in collaboration with the Platte River Recovery and Implementation Program, collected capacitively coupled (CC) resistivity data and six direct push sediment cores to identify the coarsest alluvial deposits underlying the Morse properties in central Nebraska to supplement the subsurface geologic information, for the purposes of proper siting of intentional recharge structures, and to improve current understanding of groundwater movement. The subsurface geology is described in three different data sets in varied file formats. First, for the direct-push cores, data are given as detailed descriptions of core lithology and texture and are provided in Comma Separated Values (CSV) file format. Second, the inverted CC-resistivity profiles collected are displayed using standardized color ramps and vertically exaggerated scales. Direct-push sediment cores are displayed near each profile and the lithology is described using the Unified Soil Classification System. An index map showing the location of the indicated profile and direct-push sediment cores is provided. The data are provided in pdf file format. Third, the depth-averaged resistivity from the inverted CC-resistivity profiles is provided as an ESRI shapefile.
