Multi dimensional observation data set of single watershed in Maqu County, Qinghai Tibet Plateau (2018-2019)

Multi dimensional observation data set of single watershed in Maqu County, Qinghai Tibet Plateau (2018-2019)

The dataset includs borehole core lithology, altitude survey, soil thickness and slop measurement, hydrogeological survey, and hydrogeophysical survey in the Maqu catchment of the Yellow River source region in the Tibetan Plateau. The borehole lithology data is from the 2017 drilled borehole ITC_ Maqu_ 1; altitude survey was carried out using RTK in 2019; Soil thickness and slope data were collected by auger and inclinometer in 2018 and 2019; hydrogeological survey includes groundwater table depth measurements in 2018 and 2019, and aquifer test data obtained in 2019; hydrogeological survey includes Magnetic Resonance Sounding (MRS) , Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT) , Transient Electromagnetic (TEM) , and magnetic susceptibility measurements. MRS and ERT surveys were conducted in 2018. TEM and magnetic susceptibility measurements were carried out in 2019.

File naming and required software

MRS, ERT and TEM data can be open and visualize by software Samovar, Res2dinv, and TEM-RES, respectively.
Other data are stored in Excel.
