Utilizing Indicator Kriging to Identify Suitable Zones for Manual Drilling in Weathered Crystalline Basement Aquifers
Contributors: Philip Deal
... Manual drilling offers a practical and affordable method of increasing access to groundwater supply in regions struggling with economic water scarcity. However, manual techniques are limited to specific hydrogeological contexts and must be sited appropriately. Indicator kriging is proposed as an interpolation method that builds upon previous efforts to identify suitable zones for manual drilling, particularly in weathered crystalline basement aquifers. This approach allows for heterogeneity within weathering profiles and provides probability mapping of success for regional planning. Modeling was conducted in the Upper East Region of Ghana using available borehole-log data, including: transmissivity, static water depth, laterite thickness, depth to hard rock, water quality parameters, and the degree of weathering. Indicator kriging interpolations predicted binary variables with over 90% accuracy. The model predicts that drilling into highly weathered layers will be common, and percussion techniques will be necessary to reach sufficient depths. The results suggest that suitable zones occur near Bolgatanga, Bawku, and Zebila, which coincide with historical drilling efforts in the central and eastern portions of the region. The original dataset was derived from the Hydrogeological Assessment of the Northern Regions of Ghana Project (HAP) implemented by SNC-Lavalin, Institut national de Recherche Scientifique (INRS) and the Water Resources Comission (WRC) of Ghana, and was supported by the Canadian International Development Agency. Hydrogeological data was collected and aggregated for the Voltaian Sedimentary Basin and Precambrian Basement complexes in Ghana from numerous sources. The data was compiled into a GIS databased for further study and analysis of the groundwater resources in Ghana. For this study, the dataset was obtained from the University of Ghana upon request with a focus on manual drilling feasibility. Borehole records were manipulated with various interpolation methods within the Upper East Region in ArcGIS, as described within the journal article.

... Resource Mapping data was collected from field survey and all points such as markets, atms, schools were located and appropriate tags were given. Data was uploaded on Google sheets and addons of Fusion Mas and point map were installed and addons were run to form virtual maps in their own particular webpages. Source link of those webpages are determined and were added in a iframe in src link. In web html design a table was made and all three iframe are added in table. The final html was added as html element in sites.google.com to create a custom website. The website link: www.sites.google.com/site/pranavrsmap Webpage and Sheets are the most important data here. Other data are optional and are uploaded for your Geospatial Location research

... Maps of clay, silt and sand contents (g kg-1) were predicted at 0-20 cm, 20-60 cm and 60-100 cm depths intervals by random forest regression in Google Earth Engine. Gridded soil information covers a part of the Midwest Brazil, from 12° S to 20° S and from 45° W to 54° W, and is available with 250m resolution. The maps were cross-validated and had Coefficient of Determination ranging from 0.64 to 0.85 at all depth intervals.

... In this paper, a new, alternative, multi-scale, multi-pollution source waste load allocation (WLA) system was developed, with a goal to produce optimal, fair quota allocations at multiple scales. The new WLA system integrates multi-constrained environmental Gini coefficients (EGCs) and Delphi-analytic hierarchy process (Delphi-AHP) optimization models to achieve the stated goal. This dataset consists of the raw data and the source code of models (The multi-constrained environmental Gini coefficients and Delphi-analytic hierarchy process optimization models). The source code of the multi-constrained EGCs and Delphi-AHP models was used to run the program in MATLAB environment to allocate waste load reduction quotas at both the regional scale and the site-specific scale with multiple pollution sources. The raw data mainly consists of the following two parts: (1) The shp files of various geographic information data, which was used to depicture the administrative divisions, pollution source distribution, geographical characteristics and patterns of Xian-jiang watershed; (2) The basic data includes the statistical yearbook data of villages and towns in Ningbo city, the various indicator data using to calculate the weights at criteria level and decision-making level, the contribution coefficients, and the EGC values of the three pollutants. On the basis of these data, a new, alternative, multi-scale, multi-sector optimal WLA framework was developed. The new scheme provides decision-makers critical information (i.e., the best compromise solutions of WLA) and practical guidance as they address the related water pollution control. The results, in comparison with existing practices by the local governments, suggested that the pollution discharge quota at regional scale is much fairer than the existing WLA and, even have some environmental economic benefits at pollutant source scale after optimal WLA. Some important conclusions had been found: 1) Reductions and proportions of pollutants at regional scale are significantly associated with the region’s actual socioeconomic development modes. 2）There are certain characteristics that high-reduced pollution sources tend to share (which are listed in the article). The sources with the above features should be the top priorities in the reduction of removals. 3）Most previous studies reported primarily on the WLA of removals among point sources pollution. Conversely, we found that the industrial pollution source should be the last option for reduction from an environmental-economic benefit perspective. Instead, the often overlooked types, such as agricultural non-point source and domestic sources, deserve more attention, especially in extensive rural areas.

... Version 1.0, September 9, 2019 Purpose: Created as part of a project funded by NASA’S Lunar Data Analysis Program (LDAP), the purpose of this dataset is to provide locations and diameters of boulders around small, young impact craters on the Moon. These boulder counts were conducted as part of a study aimed at determining regolith production rates and assessing landing site hazards, as discussed in the associated publications. Researchers are encouraged to read the publications and data description document to understand how the data was acquired and used. This database contains boulder distributions around small (< 1 km), young (< 200 Ma) lunar impact craters located near spacecraft landing sites. The most up-to-date database contains boulder diameters and coordinates for counts around Surveyor (Apollo 12), Cone (Apollo 14), North Ray (Apollo 16), South Ray (Apollo 16), Camelot (Apollo 17), and Zi Wei (Chang’e-3) craters. Boulders were manually identified and measured on Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) Narrow Angle Camera (NAC) images (Robinson et al., 2010) at scales of ~0.5-2 m/pixel. LROC NAC images allow for boulders ~1-2m in size and larger to be identified and measured. The tools for measuring boulders were CraterTools (Kneissl et al., 2011) and Crater Helper Tools (Nava, 2011), both developed for the ArcMap GIS platform. These boulder distributions are being used to understand boulder degradation rates on the lunar surface, and to assess landing site hazards for future surface missions to the Moon. This dataset is being archived in Mendeley Data and at the Planetary Data System (PDS) Cartography and Imaging Node for use in future boulder distribution and landing hazard studies. Future boulder counts and any refinements to existing measurements will be uploaded into subsequent versions of this dataset here and at the PDS IMG Annex: https://astrogeology.usgs.gov/search/map/Moon/Research/Regolith/lunar_boulder_data_bundle
