Nontidal network mapper

A screenshot showing a portion of the nontidal mapper, which shares short-term (2009-2018) water-year water quality results.

Detailed Description

The nontidal network mapper is a story map that provides the primary findings for nitrogen, phosphorus and suspended-sediment trends, and gives the user tools to further examine the results for river basins and individual sites. Data used in the mapper, and the methods used to compute trends and loads, can also be accessed from the tool.

Data collected from the 123 NTN stations are analyzed by the USGS every two years and used to quantify the changes in nutrient (primarily nitrogen and phosphorus) and suspended-sediment loads. The results are used by the CBP partnership to help assess response in nontidal rivers and streams to nutrient and sediment reduction efforts.
