Summary

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release provides phytoplankton data for samples collected from eleven large river sites throughout the United States, from June through September 2017. All data are reported as raw calculated values and are not rounded to USGS significant figures. The dataset includes all routine and quality assurance/quality control samples collected as part of a National Water Quality Assessment Project pilot study to describe the potential for cyanobacteria and cyanotoxin occurrence in the Nation's large rivers. Phytoplankton were identified to the lowest possible taxonomic level and abundances (density reported as natural units) are reported.

Purpose

These data were collected by the USGS 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 at eleven large river sites throughout the Nation 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.
