USGS Measurements of Water Quality in San Francisco Bay (CA), beginning in 2016

The U.S. Geological Survey maintains a program of water-quality studies in San Francisco Bay (CA) that began in 1969. This USGS Data Release archives and makes available all measurements beginning in 2016. Each year, a data file containing the previous year’s data will be added. Water-quality constituent measurements from sensors include salinity, temperature, light attenuation

Gardner River near Mammoth, 5 km downstream from site number 06191000

Sample and Specific Conductance Monitoring Site Downstream from the USGS stream gage 06191000 (Latitude N 45°1'2.4", Longitude W 110°41'37.2", NAD83). Monitoring equipment installed approximately four kilometers downstream of USGS stream gage 06191000 on the left bank. The Gardner River is not well mixed at the USGS stream gage 06191000 because the gage is positioned jus
