Mean daily discharge, stage height and water temperature data for Oksrukuyik Creek from June to September, 1998


Oksrukuyik Creek stage height and calculated discharge for the summer of 1998 as well as Oksrukuyik Creek continuous temperature recorded by a Campbell CR10 data logger. 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 were taken every ten minutes with a Campbell CR-10 data logger, and continuously with the USGS Stevens chart recorder, at the USGS gauging station, 10 meters downstream of the Dalton Highway crossing. Discharge measurements were taken by Karie Slavik, Nia Pauliukonis and Stephanie Parker using a Marsh McBirney flow meter at a location 20 meters below the chart recorder. Flow was measured at least 20 points for each transect. A total of 8 discharge measurements were used to calibrate the rating curves for this year.

The rating curve used to calculate discharge is Discharge = a(x^b), where a=9.0e-19, b=8.8625, x=stage height in meters

Temperature readings were taken by a Campbell CR-10 data logger located 10 m downstream from the Oksrukuyik Creek crossing of the Dalton Highway.
