This is the data repository for the journal article entitled "Variability of Subsurface Structure and Infiltration Hydrology among Surface Coal Mine Valley Fills" published in Science of the Total Environment in 2018 by Erich T. Hester, Kathryn L. Little, Joseph D. Buckwalter, Carl E. Zipper, and Thomas J. Burbey. The data themselves, as well as information about the data, for example geographic location and date, can be found in several locations:

1) Many data are in the journal article or the associated supplementary information, which are available at the journal website or can be requested by emailing Erich Hester at ehester@vt.edu
2) Many data are available in the files associated with this Hydroshare resource, which are described in the readme.txt file
3) Any questions that are not answered by the above methods can be directed to Erich Hester at ehester@vt.edu

Note that the data included in this Hydroshare resource are for the electrical resistivity imaging (ERI). The other data collected for the published article (e.g., bore logs) are solely within the article itself and the associated supplementary information published with the article at the journal website.
