Data for parameter code 63680 (turbidity) were collected using a probe with the following specifications: turbidity, water, monochrome near infra-red LED light, 780-900nm, 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 the U.S. Geological Survey, National Water-Quality Laboratory, Denver, CO and RTI Laboratories, Livonia, MI. Laboratory sediment analyses are by the U.S. Geological Survey, Kentucky Sediment Laboratory. Field determinations of discharge, bacteria, specific conductance, pH, water temperature, turbidity, barometric pressure and dissolved oxygen are by the U.S. Geological Survey.
