Start Date


Opatz, C.C., Curran, C.A., Tecca A.E., and Grossman, E.E., 2019, Stage, water velocity and water quality data collected in the Lower Nisqually River, McAllister Creek and tidal channels of the Nisqually River Delta, Thurston County, Washington, February 11, 2016 to September 18, 2017: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


A vented conductivity, temperature and depth sensor (CTD, InSitu Aqua Troll) was installed at site NR3 (N 47° 05’ 12”/W 122° 42’ 22”) and continuously measured water level, water temperature, specific conductance, and salinity at 15-minute intervals from February 12, 2016 to August 7, 2016 (177 days) and from October 7, 2016 to February 8, 2017 (124 days). This site is tidally influenced and located approximately 2.2 km upstream from the mouth of the Nisqually River. Elevation (NAVD88) of the deployment pipe was surveyed by RTN-GPS. Elevation of pipe plus distance to sensor is included in the offset. The offset needed to convert water depth to NAVD88 water surface elevation is -0.31 meters. . Water depth of the sensor ranged from 0.04 [...]
