Table 2. Brief description of the datasets collected and analyzed as part of the National Water Quality Assessment Nutrient Enrichment Effects Team Study.

[seston, water column; RTH, richest targeted habitat (for example, rock or wood); DTH, depositional targeted habitat (for example, fine grain substrate); GIS, geographic information system]

Dataset Brief description
