Summary

This product consists of one tabular dataset and associated metadata of water quality information related to rivers, streams, and reservoirs in the Upper Mississippi River watershed between 2012 and 2016. This data release is a part of a national assessment of freshwater aquatic carbon fluxes. Data consist of organic and inorganic carbon related species, carbon dioxide and methane gas fluxes calculated from manual chamber measurements, nitrogen species, carbon isotopes, oxygen isotopes, cations, anions, trace metals, and various in situ measurements including: pH, water temperature, air temperature, barometric pressure, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, fluorescent dissolved organic matter, and specific conductance. Sampling frequency varied [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this dataset was to collect and analyze water quality data regarding carbon and solute flux from the Upper Mississippi River basin in order to assess current conditions and establish an ecological, chemical, and hydrologic baseline to which future measurements can be compared.
