Data were collected as part of an ongoing collaborative partnership between the U.S. Geological Survey, Yukon River Inter-Tribal Watershed Council, and Yukon River Basin communities to monitor the health of the Yukon River and create a long term baseline record of water-quality against which projected changes in hydrology due to climate change may be measured.
