Abstract : Nine sites within the Walnut Creek watershed basin near Ames, Iowa, were investigated with the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station Site Characterization and Analysis Penetrometer System (SCAPS). The SCAPS performed soil classification and stratigraphy with the conventional cone penetrometer. Electrical resistivity measurements were made at two sites with the penetrometer-mounted resistivity. Soil stratigraphy verification with adjacent soil boring logs (provided by other government agencies) was also accomplished. The penetrometer data from each of the nine sites were collected to augment the research efforts within the Walnut Creek Management System Evaluation Area, being conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
