Electrical resistivity tomography method was used to monitor near-surface structures of a mud volcano in Piparo, Trinidad. This method utilizes the Wenner array electrode configuration, electrode spacing of 3 m, and 14 parallel lines spaced at 12 m apart. We acquired data at two different times. The first dataset were acquired in July 2018. On the 21st of August 2018, a magnitude 6.9 earthquake occurred near the northern coast of Venezuela, and greatly affected the study area, as well as the majority of Trinidad. The second dataset were acquired in January 2019. The data (electrical resistivity data.rar) contain: July 2018 2D and pseudo-3D data sets January 2019 2D and pseudo-3D data sets
