New Monitoring Station at Lake Abert
USGS has a new continuous water elevation monitoring station at Lake Abert near Valley Falls (1038200) Oregon. It currently measures Water Level, Water Temperature, and Air temperature. Data collected with cooperation from Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and Oregon Water Resource Department.
The water level is related to salinity in this hypersaline lake, and salinity concentrations affect food webs and food resources for migratory birds. The USGS Saline Lakes IWAAs project will be able to build on this dataset with discrete water-quality samples and, potentially, additional continuous water-quality monitoring.
