Data release of capacity and area of Grand Lake O' the Cherokees, northeastern Oklahoma, 2009

The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Grand River Dam Authority, computed a 2009 capacity and area table of Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees. The capacity and area table defines the relation between the elevation of the water surface and the volume and area of water that is impounded. The capacity and area of Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees were computed from a Triangular
