Oksrukuyik Creek 2012 summer temperature and discharge calculated from stage height.


Oksrukuyik Creek stage height and calculated discharge for the summer of 2012 as well as Oksrukuyik Creek continuous temperature recorded by a Campbell CR10 datalogger and HOBO pressure transducer. Measurements were taken at a new location, about 100 meters upstream of the road, starting in 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 flowmeter. Discharge was measured six times throughout the summer season. A HOBO pressure transducer was used to measure stage height. HOBO was installed on 16 June 2011 and removed on 18 August 2011. Each instrument recorded stage height and temperature every 10 minutes. The observed stage height is used with the measured discharge to develop a rating curve. The rating curve is used to calculate discharge from the recorded stage height values. The equation for the HOBO rating curve is Q=4.4296x^3.1567where x is stage height in meters. The location of the instruments and discharge measurement was moved in 2009 to the current location due to potential road construction on the culvert at the Dalton Highway crossing.
