Stream Study: Turkey Lakes Watershed Study
Water chemistry is measured at several stream stations in the Turkey Lakes Watershed (TLW) to quantify mass fluxes, cycling and budgets. Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) tends to focus on lake outflow stations and other stations situated on Norberg Creek (the major drainage channel in the basin) while Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) tends to focus on headwater streams draining forested hill slopes. Monitoring began in 1980 but not all stations have complete records through to the present. Stream flow is measured continuously while water chemistry is measured intermittently. The frequency of chemical sampling is variable with daily sampling during periods of high flow (usually at spring melt) and bi-weekly sampling during low flow periods.
The data associated to this page are separated into archival data from 1982-86 to 2006, and current data from 2007 to current.
