Abstract

This inventory contains a list of published and unpublished chemical analyses obtained through September 30, 1961, by agencies associated with the Subcommittee on Hydrology. Bulletin 6 of Subcommittee on Hydrology includes references to all surface-water analyses for states east of the Mississippi River known to exist in the files of Federal agencies through September 30, 1951. Records of analyses of surface waters for states west of the Mississippi River are included in Bulletins 2 and 9 of the Subcommittee. Bulletin 2 includes the period of record prior to October 1, 1947, and Bulletin 9 includes the period from October 1, 1947, to September 30, 1955. Therefore, the earliest date for which references to data are included in this volume varies from October 1951 for states east of the Mississippi River (including Minnesota) to October 1, 1955, for states west of the Mississippi River. Analyses of water from Alaska and Puerto Rico were not reported in earlier inventories. An attempt was made to include available analyses obtained in Alaska since October 1951, but additional chemical determinations of water in Alaska that are not inventoried in this report were undoubtedly made in years prior to 1951. Requests concerning specific records not reported herein should be directed to offices having responsibility in the area.

This publication is patterned after preceding bulletins as far as practicable. The contents include a list of sampling stations and locations, drainage area above each station, period of record, number and frequency of samples collected, number of analytical values reported in each group arranged according to general types or purposes, and a list of references to the sources of basic data.
