This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release provides vertical profiles of water-quality data collected from two sites in Milford Lake, Kansas, August 24-25, 2017. Data are rounded to USGS significant figures. A multiparameter water-quality sonde was used to measure water temperature, specific conductance, dissolved oxygen, pH, turbidity, chlorophyll fluorescence, phycocyanin fluorescence, and dissolved organic matter fluorescence. Photosynthetically active radiation was measured using a spherical underwater quantum sensor during each sample collection with daylight present. Vertical profiles were collected approximately 75 minutes apart and alternated between the two sites. This data release was produced in compliance with the federal open-data requirements as a way to make scientific products associated with USGS research efforts and publications available to the public. The dataset includes all vertical profile data collected at two USGS sample locations in Milford Lake.
