Data for parameter code 63680 (turbidity) were collected using a probe with the following specifications: turbidity, water, monochrome near infra-red LED light, 780-900 nm, detection angle 90 +/-2.5 degrees, FNU (Formazin Nephelometric Units). Hydrologic event 9 indicates a routine sample while J designates a storm event sample. Laboratory chemical analyses are by RTI Laboratories, Livonia, MI. Laboratory sediment analyses are by the U.S. Geological Survey, Kentucky Sediment Research Laboratory. Field determinations of discharge, specific conductance, pH, water temperature, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, barometric pressure, microbiology, and air temperature are by the U.S. Geological Survey.
