King, L.R., Foster, G.M., and Graham, J.L., 2016, Milford Lake, Kansas, spatial water-quality data, July 27 and August 31, 2015: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release provides spatial water-quality data collected from Milford Lake, Kansas, on July 27 and August 31, 2015. All data are reported as raw measured values and are not rounded to USGS significant figures. Continuous water-quality monitors were used to measure water temperature, specific conductance, turbidity, pH, chlorophyll, phycocyanin, dissolved oxygen, fluorescent dissolved organic matter (fDOM), and nitrate (only collected at 1.0-meter depth) at thirty-second intervals at depths of 0.5-, 1.0-, and 1.5-meters throughout the lake.
