Summary

This report describes the quality of nutrient data in stream and ground-water samples collected in 52 NAWQA study units during water years 1992-2001 based on an analysis of contamination bias and sampling variability. The results of this QC analysis are compared to characteristics of the environmental data and to national water-quality standards and criteria to assess the potential effects of bias and variability on interpretation of the environmental data. The NAWQA study units that provided the QC data represent a broad array of hydrologic conditions in the 48 contiguous States and Alaska and Hawaii. The data were aggregated into a national data set during the spring of 2002 and were extensively reviewed.
