Abstract

In 1978, data were collected for identification and quantification of benthic invertebrates, periphyton, and bottom material and their trace-metals concentrations from three sites in Salmon Creek basin, Wash. Metal analyses included arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, zinc, selenium, and mercury. Physical data collected included water temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, discharge, and size of cobbles and fine stream-bottom material. Additional chemical analyses included major constituents. Benthic invertebrate identifications were generally taken to the generic level, with a total of 49 taxons identified and quantified. A total of 36 periphyton taxons were quantified and identified, generally at the species level. (Woodard-USGS)
