Summary

This data release contains the calibration data set and R code used to create regression models for estimating daily loads of suspended sediment, total nitrogen, and total phosphorus at the Iroquois River near Foresman, Indiana streamgage (05524500). The USGS R software package, rloadest, was used to develop the regression models and estimate loads. The models were developed using discrete water-quality data and concurrent daily streamflow data measured/determined at the streamgage for the period April 2015 through July 2018. Also included in this data release is the input data set of daily streamflow data and the daily load output data sets that were produced by the regression models. Summary information for the model development [...]
