The use of Continuous Resistivity Profiling to Evaluate Geomorphologic Controls on Aquifer Recharge in the Mississippi Alluvial Plain from Money to Steiner, Mississippi, August 2016 to November 2016

August 1, 2018

In cooperation with more than 10 local, State, and Federal stakeholders, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) is studying the aquifer systems in and near the Mississippi River alluvial plain (https://www2.usgs.gov/water/lowermississippigulf/map/index.html). This data release consists of continuous resistivity profiling (CRP) data collected by the USGS to characterize the electrical properties of geomorphological features in the part of the Mississippi River alluvial plain from Money, Miss. to Steiner, Miss. A total of 68 kilometers of multiple CRP profiles were obtained. The CRP data were collected by using the Ohmmapper TR-5 system (Geometrics, Inc., 2016) to determine if different geomorphological features in the study could be identified. Drilling logs from nearby boreholes were used to confirm if apparent changes in lithology correlated positively with apparent changes in resistivity profiles.
