Bunch, A.R., 2019, Data and rloadest models for suspended sediment, total nitrogen, and total phosphorus for Kankakee River at Shelby, Indiana, January 5, 2016 to May 31, 2018: U.S. Geological Survey data release, https://doi.org/10.5066/P9PE9PTD.

Summary

This data release contains data sets and R code used to create regression models for estimating daily flux of suspended sediment, total nitrogen, and total phosphorus at the Kankakee River at Shelby, IN (05518000) streamgage. The models were developed using discrete water-quality data and concurrent daily streamflow data measured/determined at the streamgage for the period January 2016 through May 2018. Also, included is a daily streamflow input data set and daily flux output data sets that were developed by application of the regression models. The USGS rloadest package was used to develop the regression models and flux estimates. Summary information for the models for each constituent are included in this data release.
