Data and rloadest models for daily total nitrogen load for the School Branch Watershed, Hendricks County, Indiana - water years 2016-2018

July 16, 2021

Total Nitrogen (TN) rloadest models were developed to compute TN flux at School Branch at three USGS monitoring stations: School Branch at Maloney Road near Brownsburg, Indiana (03353415); School Branch at CR750N at Brownsburg, Indiana (03353420); and School Branch at Noble Drive at Brownsburg, Indiana (03353430). Frequently, TN models developed in rloadest regress discrete TN concentrations against concurrent daily mean streamflow values. However, due to the flashy nature of streamflows on School Branch, the developed TN models regressed discrete TN concentrations against the closest unit-value (15-minute) streamflows. Once TN flux models were calibrated, unit-value streamflows were used to estimate average TN fluxes for selected time periods, which in turn were used to compute loads. This data release contains calibration data sets and R code used to create regression models for estimating daily flux of total nitrogen and summary information for the models for each site.
