USGS Transboundary River Monitoring in Southeast Alaska

Science Center Objects

The quantity and quality of streamflow in transboundary watersheds of Southeast Alaska are important to many stakeholders. Development and operation of several mines in Canada have increased the interest in current and future conditions in these watersheds. The USGS Alaska Science Center operates streamflow information stations on the Alsek, Chilkat, Taku, Stikine, and Unuk Rivers. Real-time water level and discharge are available at all stations, continuous water temperature data are collected at the Alsek, Taku, and Unuk Rivers, and continuous water quality data are collected at the Unuk River.
