Mean daily discharge, stage height and water temperature data for Oksrukuyik Creek from June to September, 1999


Oksrukuyik Creek stage height and calculated discharge for the summer of 1999 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.

State height measurements were taken hourly with a Campbell CR-10 data logger, and continuously with the USGS Sevens chart recorder, at the USGS gauging station, 10 meters downstream of the Dalton Highway crossing. Discharge measurements were taken by Karie Slavik and Stephanie Parker 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 7 discharge measurements were used to calibrate the rating curves for this year. The rating curve equation used to calculate discharge is Discharge=a(x^b) where a=1e-11, b=5.3988, x=stage height in meters Temperature readings were taken every 10 minutes by a Campbell CR-10 data logger located 10 m downstream from the Oksrukuyik Creek crossing of the Dalton Highway.
