Oksrukuyik Creek stage height and calculated discharge for the summer of 1997 as well as Oksrukuyik Creek continuous temperature recorded by a Campbell CR10 datalogger. Measurements were taken about 10 meters downstream of the road (2.6k below the original N and P dripper). In Summer 2009, this location moved upstream of the road, do to the construction of a culvert.

Stage height measurements and temperature were taken half hourly with a Campbell CR-10 datalogger, and continuously with the USGS Stevens chart recorder, at the USGS gauging station, 10 meters downstream of the Dalton Highway crossing of the Oksrukuyik River. Discharge measurements were taken by Kaire Slavik and Nat Weston using a Marsh-McBirney flow meter at a location 20 meters below the chart recorder. Flow was measured at 20 points for each transect. A total of 8 discharge measurements were used to calibrate the rating curve for this year.
IMPORTANT: Logger data is 1 day (exactly 24 hours) behind the real date listed.
The rating curve equation used to calculate discharge was Discharge = a(x^b), where a=2e-10, b=4.9026 and x=stage height in meters
