Summary

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release provides discretely measured cyanotoxin, chlorophyll-a, and cyanobacterial toxin genetic data for samples collected from eleven large river sites throughout the United States, from June through September 2017. Discrete water-quality samples were analyzed for cyanotoxins (anatoxin, cylindrospermopsin, microcystin, and saxitoxin), chlorophyll-a, and cyanobacterial toxin genetics as part of a National Water-Quality Assessment Project pilot study to describe potential cyanotoxin occurrence in the Nation's large rivers.

Purpose

These data were collected by the National Water-Quality Assessment Project as part of a pilot study to describe the potential for cyanotoxin occurrence in the Nation's large rivers. This data release was produced in support of the Inland Waters journal article by Graham and others (2020) (https://doi.org/10.1080/20442041.2019.1700749) describing cyanotoxin occurrence during June through September 2017 and in compliance with the federal open-data requirements as a way to make scientific products associated with USGS research efforts and publications available to the public.
