Summary
Abstract: Compilation of protocols for the sampling and analyses of aquatic systems in
Denali National Park and Preserve's long-term ecological monitoring (LTEM)
program. The aquatic systems monitoring program may be separated into three
components: Stream hydrology, Water Chemistry, and Aquatic Biology. Stream
hydrology includes physical measurements such as stream discharge, gauging
station operations, suspended sediment and turbidity measurements, channel
morphometry surveys, and bed material classification. The water chemistry
measurements include major ions, nutrients, pH, alkalinity, and conductivity.
The aquatic biological includes benthic invertebrate collection. Protocols for
benthic invertebrate collection are documented in a separate manual.

Quality
Several methods were used to ensure laboratory accuracy and precision
in processing water chemistry samples. The data validation and
verification procedures were taken from USDA (1993) and APHA (1985).
The correctness of analyses for the primary replicate samples are
checked using anion-cation balances.
