Hydrologic data from Naval Oil Shale Reserves, Parachute Creek basin, northwestern Colorado, water years 1982-83

January 1, 1994

Data for water years 1982 and 1983, collected by the U.S. Department of Energy, Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves in the Parachute Creek drainage basin of western Colorado are summarized. These data are supplemental to data reported by Patt and others (1982) and Galyean and others (1983). Data from five streamflow-gaging stations, automatic sediment samplers, and two water quality monitors are presented. The sediment samplers and monitors are located at two of the streamflow-gaging stations. Climate data including mean, maximum, and minimum air temperature and relative humidity, daily solar radiation, mean wind velocity, and mean wind direction are reported for one site. Daily precipitation data are reported for three sites and snow-source data are reported for one site. (USGS)
