Groundwater levels and other covariates useful for statistical modeling for the Mississippi River Valley Alluvial aquifer, Mississippi Alluvial Plain, 1990–2019

January 14, 2022

Groundwater-level data, in conjunction with attendant metadata and covariates (predictor variables) data, for the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer (MRVA) are used to support statistical and process-based numerical modeling. This page represents a collection of groundwater-level data within the expanse of the Mississippi Alluvial Plain (MAP) (Painter and Westerman, 2018) and are derived from well-specific periods of record of discrete measurements and continuous water levels aggregated to daily statistics. The basic data structures are intended also to serve as interpretability standards for use by statistical software such as described by Asquith and Seanor (2019) and Asquith and others (2019).
