Water and Sediment Quality in the Yukon River Basin, Alaska, During Water Year 2003
Entry ID: USGS_OFR_2005_1397

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This report contains water-quality and sediment-quality data from samples
collected in the Yukon River basin from March through September during the 2003
water year (WY). Samples were collected throughout the year at five stations in
the basin (three on the main stem Yukon River, one each on the Tanana and
Porcupine Rivers). A broad range of physical, chemical, and biological analyses
are presented.
