Otuk Creek Discharge Data (ASCII) [Sturm, M.]



This dataset contains snowmelt data from Otuk Creek. Flow was measured from a bridge over the creek in the following manner: A weight was suspended from a graduated line. This was dropped into the creek from the bridge at 1-m intervals. An observer positioned on the side of the creek read the depth. Chips were dropped into the creek and their transit time recorded over a 25-m course; from this the surface velocity was computed. Combining depth and velocity, the discharge was calculated and used to calibrate a continuous stage height record for discharge.

This dataset is available in both ASCII and EXCEL formats - For data browsing, we suggest ordering the EXCEL version and using EXCEL to plot the data. NOTE: This dataset contains the data in ASCII format.
