In 1999 the U.S. Geological Survey made 38 direct current (dc) electrical soundings at the Amargosa Desert Research Site (ADRS) near Beatty, Nevada (fig. 1.) using the Schlumberger array. An additional 16 Schlumberger soundings were made in 2000. The soundings were made to determine the subsurface resistivity distribution, and the location of faults. The purpose of this report is to present the data, its automatic interpretation, cross sections and resistivity depth maps. Figure 2 is a map of the sounding locations. The soundings are represented by circles. The 1999 data are numbered 1 through 38 and the 2000 data are numbered 101 through 116. Table 1 gives the sounding number, x coordinate, and y coordinate of the soundings in UTM zone 11 NAD27.
