Abstract

Selected hydrologic data were collected between May 1979 and October 1981 at 59 sites on the Truckee River, 10 sites on selected tributaries and smaller diversions, and 9 sites on the Truckee Canal. The data were collected in support of the water-quality and hydrologic investigation components of the Truckee-Carson River-Quality Assessment by the U.S. Geological Survey. This report contains data from: (1) diel and antecedent measurements made in conjunction with four synoptic water-quality studies, (2) analyses of phytoplankton samples to supplement other biological data collected during the synoptic studies, (3) an investigation of surface and intragravel water quality to determine the suitability of the river as a spawning habitat for Lahontan cutthroat trout, (4) 10 water-temperature recorders, (5) 11 dye-tracer studies, (6) 5 gas-tracer reaeration studies, (7) summaries of dye-tracer travel times derived from the dye and reaeration studies, and (8) discharge measurements with associated channel-geometry descriptions at 46 miscellaneous sites on the river, selected tributaries, and the canal.
