Velocity test data for assessing the effect of salinity tolerance on cyanobacteria associated with a harmful algal bloom in Lake Okeechobee, Florida, July 10 to 13, 2017

November 20, 2018

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release provides velocity test data for assessing the effect of salinity tolerance on cyanobacteria associated with a harmful algal bloom in Lake Okeechobee, Florida, July 10 to 13, 2017. All data are reported as raw measured values and are not rounded to USGS significant figures. Water and algal bloom material were collected from Lake Okeechobee, Florida on July 7, 2017. This dataset includes continuous water-quality measurements take in the laboratory July 10 to July 13, 2017 measuring water temperature, specific conductance, salinity, pH, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll, and phycocyanin at five-minute intervals at velocities of 0.946, 0.271, and 0 feet per second (ft/s).
