Title

Prieta stream - Discharge and water level at pool 0
Summary

Short name: 

LUQMetadata182

Data set ID: 

182

Abstract: 

This is a long-term monitoring of water discharge and water level at Prieta Stream. The monitoring point is located at Pool 0: which is the same location where we sample stream chemistry. Measurements are taken automatically with a pressure transducer: every 15 minutes. Measure are originally of pressure: which are translated to water level using the reference gauge. Using an equation provided by Dr. Fred Scatena: water level is converted into discharge. Equation: discharge (m3/sec) = 1.095 - 1.585 * stage + 0.578 * stage * stage

Methodology

Methods: 

We are using an Onset Computers Pressure Transducer located at the bottom of pool 0: inside the pipe that holds the stage gauge. A second transducer is located outside the water to correct data for atmospheric changes in pressure.

Instrumentation: 

pressure transducer

Additional information: 

Storage sites: Data are retrieved every month: place on a computer at El Verde Field Station and then moved to Plone for general access. From there: it is placed in data management.
