Methods: 

Stage height measurements taken at gauging station and discharge calculated from stage height by using a "stage/discharge relationship". Temperature readings were taken daily with a 12" blunt stem reotemp dial-head thermometer at a location between the two culverts on the upstream side of the road. Notes: Oksrukuyik Creek discharge data was acquired from the USGS in Fairbanks who use their gauging station on the creek to monitor the stage height. More detailed methods of their Hydrologic Unit, calibration measurements and regression curve were not available at the time of this file. Discharge values, as mean daily discharge, were given in ft^3/sec and were converted by LTER staff to m^3/sec. See Oksrukuyik Creek 1988 Discharge paper file for more details. Notes: There are several days for which no temperature data are available. There are also days on which more than one temperature reading was taken.
