National Water-Quality Assessment Program


Discrete and Continuous Water-Quality Data and Hydrologic Parameters from Seven Agricultural Watersheds in the United States, 2002–09


By Kathleen A. McCarthy, David C. Lampe, and Paul D. Capel


Abstract

Field and analytical methods; discrete organic and non-organic water-quality data and associated quality-control data; and continuous hydrologic and water-quality parameters are reported for sites in California, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Mississippi, Nebraska, and Washington. The sites were sampled as part of the U.S. Geological Survey National Water-Quality Assessment Program’s Agricultural Chemicals Team study to better understand how environmental processes and agricultural practices interact to determine the transport and fate of agricultural chemicals in the environment.
