Index of streamflow and water quality records to September 30, 1978, Southwest Alaska

Open-File Report 80-551



This report, which is one of a series of reports for Alaska, lists stations in southwest Alaska (fig. 1) at which streamflow and water-quality data have been collected by the U.S. Geological Survey.

Most of the data referred to in this report have been published in reports of the Geological Survey. Water-quality data which were not included in those reports have been placed in the Survey's national computer storage system and are available through data-retrieval programs. Some of the older streamflow data have not been entered into the computer system. Geological Survey Water-Supply Paper (WSP) 1372 contains a summary of previously published records of monthly and annual discharges through September 1945, as well as records of daily and monthly discharges for the water years 1946-50 that had not yet been published. Water-Supply Paper 1372 also contains other stream chemical quality records collected between September 1948 and September 1950 and also some earlier records for the Yukon River at Anvik. Since 1950 data have been published in water-supply papers and a series of annual reports...

Data have been published in the annual series of reports, "Water Resources Data for Alaska," since 1961 for streamflow records and 1964 for water-quality records.

This index lists: continuous-record streamgaging stations, crest-stage gage and low-flow partial-record stations; daily chemical, sediment, and temperature stations; and stations where some chemical, sediment, and biological data have been collected on an intermittent basis.
