Water-table elevation contours and depth-to-water grid for the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, New Jersey, and vicinity, spring 2015

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This data release contains GIS layers and associated metadata in support of a hydrologic assessment of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, New Jersey. Water-table elevation contours and a depth-to-water grid are included. Water levels measured at groundwater and surface-water sites located in and near the refuge as part of a water-level synoptic study conducted primarily during May 2015 were used in the development of both layers, along with other spatial data. Included is one shapefile with associated metadata: ebf_wtelev_spring2015: continuous water-table elevation contours. Also included is one grid file with associated metadata: ebf_dtw_spring2015: depth-to-water grid. This data release supports the following publication: Wieben, C.M., and Chepiga, M.M., 2018, Hydrologic assessment of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, New Jersey: U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2017-5088, 38 p., https://doi.org/10.3133/sir20175088.
