Mean daily discharge and water temperature data for Oksrukuyik Creek from June to September, 2001

Abstract: 

Oksrukuyik Creek stage height and calculated discharge for the summer of 2001 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.

Methods: 

Stage height measurements and temperature readings were taken every ten minutes with a Campbell CR-10 data logger, at the USGS gauging station, 10 meters downstream of the Dalton Highway crossing. Discharge measurements were taken by Karie Slavik and Jon O'Donnell 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 to calculate discharge is Discharge = a(x^b) where a=5e-10, b=4.7637, and x=stage height in meters.
