Abstract:
The Neuse River Estuary in North Carolina is a broad, V-shaped water body located on the southwestern end of Pamlico Sound. This estuary suffers from severe eutrophication for which several water quality models have recently been developed to aid in the management of nutrient loading to the estuary. In an effort to help constrain model estimates of the fraction of nutrients delivered by direct ground-water discharge, continuous resistivity profile (CRP) measurements were made during the spring of 2004 and 2005. CRP is used to measure electrical resistivity of sediments, a property that is sensitive to difference in salinity of submarine ground water. The 2004 and 2005 surveys used floating resistivity streamers of 100 m and 50 m respectively. The depth penetration of the streamers is approximately 20% of the streamer length which translates to approximately 20-25 m with the 100 m streamer and 12-14 m with the 50 m streamer. These data were processed using AGI's EarthImager 2D software. CRP data enables the mapping of the extent and depth of the fresher ground water within the estuary.
Purpose:
To provide the linearized raw resistivity data collected by the AGI SuperSting system in the RES2DINV format.

These data were acquired with an AGI SuperSting Marine system that is described at the website: www.agiusa.com/marinesystem.shtml. The particular system used for this acquisition was an 11 stainless steel electrode array with electrodes spaced 10 meters apart. A dipole-dipole configuration was used for the data collection in which two fixed current electrodes are assigned with the measurement of voltage potentials between electrode pairs in the remaining electrodes. Each line of data acquisition records several files. The two files necessary for processing are the *.stg and *.gps file. The STG file contains the resistivity data, while the GPS file contains the navigation information.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The data were transferred from the logging computer via AGISSAdmin software. The data file available for this day is 42304001.*.
Process_Date: Unknown
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The data were merged with navigation and linearized using AGI's Marine Log Manager software.
Process_Date: Unknown
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The straightest portion of the file was then exported to a new STG file, and accompanying DEP file. The DEP file contains the distance along line and bathymetry values.
Process_Date: Unknown
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The STG and DEP file (with an average water resistivity value) were converted to a format suitable for the RES2DINV processing software. The conversion was accomplished by a Visual Basic 6 program written at the USGS office in Woods Hole.

Process_Description:
Edits to the metadata were made to fix any errors that MP v 2.9.34 flagged. This is necessary to enable the metadata to be successfully harvested for various data catalogs. In some cases, this meant adding text "Information unavailable" or "Information unavailable from original metadata" for those required fields that were left blank. Other minor edits were probably performed (title, publisher, publication place, etc.). The source information was incomplete and had to be modified to meet the standard. The process steps without process dates had the date set to unknown. The distributor information needed to be added, along with the distribution format and network resource. The metadata date (but not the metadata creator) was edited to reflect the date of these changes. The metadata available from a harvester may supersede metadata bundled within a download file. Compare the metadata dates to determine which metadata file is most recent.
