Mean daily discharge and water temperature data for Oksrukuyik Creek from June to September, 2008


Oksrukuyik Creek stage height and calculated discharge for the summer of 2008 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.

Discharge was measured using the velocity area method with a SonTek or Marsh-McBirney flow meter. Discharge was measured six times throughout the summer season. Flow was measured at 20 points along a transect. A Campbell Scientific CR-10 data logger recorded stage height every ten minutes. The observed stage height is used with the measured discharge to develop a rating curve (y=4e-13x6.7354). The rating curve is used to calculate discharge from the recorded stage height values. A Campbell Scientific CR10 data logger was installed on 24Jul08 and removed on 06Aug08. The data logger recorded temperature every 10 minutes. It was located about 10m downstream of the Dalton Highway crossing. Arctic LTER Streams Protocols
