Alvarez, N.L., Pahl, R.A. and Rosen, M.R., 2018, Supplemental data for groundwater contributions to excessive algal growth in the East Fork Carson River, Carson Valley, west-central Nevada, 2010 and 2012: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This data release contains two tabular data sets of water-quality data collected on the East Fork Carson River. EFCR_CQW.xlsx is a Microsoft Excel workbook containing continuous water-quality data collected by the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) at a site on the East Fork Carson River over two time periods in 2010 and 2012. Data were collected at U.S. Geological Survey site number 385755119473704, East Fork Carson River near Muller Lane downstream transect, also referred to as "SDT" in the larger work. Stream temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, and specific conductance were measured at 5 to 10 minute intervals from August 3-September 29, 2010 and from July 20-August 17, 2012. EFCR_StreamProfiles.xlsx is Microsoft [...]

These data were collected as part of a U.S. Geological Survey study, done in cooperation with the Carson Water Subconservancy District and Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, to gain an improved understanding of the contributions of nutrients to the East Fork Carson River from groundwater, characterize algal conditions and impacts on water quality, assess potential sources of nitrate in groundwater discharging to the stream, and evaluate nitrate reduction in groundwater from denitrification. The intended uses of this data set include, but are not limited to, natural resource modeling, mapping, and visualization applications.
