This csv contains measurements of hydraulic conductivity from 20 boreholes made at Oak Ridge earthflow on the landslide body and the surrounding slopes. All measurements were made using a Model 2800K1 Guelph Permeameter, a constant head device available from Soilmoisture Equipment Corp. All boreholes were augered using the 3-in. diameter auger included in the Guelph permeameter kit and then roughened using the brush attachment to minimize the effects of any smear layers created during the process of augering.

borehole_ID: identifies which borehole the measurements correspond to (P1-P20)
depth_cm: the depth below the ground surface of the bottom of the borehole. Measured in centimeters
latitude: latitude measured with a hand-held GPS device
longitude: longitude measured with a hand-held GPS device
date: the date on which the measurement was taken
time: the time corresponding to the water level reading
water_level_cm: the water level within the permeameter reservoir, read by eye. Measured in centimeters
head_cm: the amount of head imposed on the permeameter at the start of the test. Measured in centimeters
reservoir: indicates whether the measurements in question were made with the inner water reservoir of the permeameter (inner) or the combined inner and outer reservoirs (combined).
lithology: indicates whether the measurement was made on the landslide body (melange) or on the surrounding slopes (sandstone)
