Mean daily discharge and water temperature data for Oksrukuyik Creek from June to September, 2006

Abstract: 

Oksrukuyik Creek stage height and calculated discharge for the summer of 2006 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: 

Discharge was measured using the velocity area method with a SonTek or Marsh-McBirney flow meter. Discharge was measured five times throughout the summer season. Flow was measured at 20 points along a transect. A Campbell Scientific CR-10 data logger recorded stage height and temperature every ten minutes. The observed stage height is used with the measured discharge to develop a rating curve (y=0.0688x-2.1286). The rating curve is used to calculate discharge from the recorded stage height values. A Campbell Scientific CR10 data logger was installed on 08Jun06 and removed on 15Aug06.
