Summary

This USGS data release represents the input data used to identify trends in New Jersey streams, water years 1971-2011 and the results of Weighted Regression on Time, Discharge, and Season (WRTDS) models and seasonal rank-sum tests. The data set consists of CSV tables and Excel workbooks of: • trends_InputData_NJ_1971_2011: Reviewed water-quality values and qualifiers at selected stream stations in New Jersey over water years 1971-2011 • trends_WRTDS_AnnualValues_NJ_1971_2011: Annual concentrations and fluxes for each water-quality characteristic at each station from WRTDS models • trends_WRTDS_Changes_NJ_1971_2011: Changes and trends in flow-normalized concentrations and fluxes determined from WRTDS models • trends_SeasonalRankSum_results_NJ_1971_2011: [...]

Purpose

The data set from which trends in water quality were identified is being archived so that the public can easily examine the data. Detailed results of each trend test are being archived to allow the public to identify the level of significance and amount of change associated with each trend. Results from WRTDS (Weighted Regressions on Time, Discharge, and Season) models include values of flow-normalized concentration and flow-normalized fluxes for each water year of the period of analysis.
