Eleven domestic water wells over the Marcellus Shale in New York were sampled monthly for 13 months. They were analyzed for dissolved hydrocarbons (methane, ethane, propane) and major ion concentrations (Ca, Mg, K, Na, NH4, SO4, Cl, F, Br, NO3). Biannual (Jun & Dec 2017) methane and water isotope measurements are included for wells with sufficient concentrations. The likely sources of salinity and probabilities for each well for each month are also listed.

Additional Metadata

Name Value
NOTES -5555 indicates value was below detection limit; -9999 indicates that a measurement was not made, usually due to insufficient amount; Original_ID is from Christian, et al. (2016); Low Salinity means the chloride concentration is below 20 mg/L and there is not enough to determine where it comes from
