This dataset contains discharge, temperature, and conductivity observations collected longitudinally along middle section of the Prove River. Data was collected at approximately 23 sites intermittently dispersed from the Charleston Aquatic Station to the USGS gaging station just below Jordanelle Dam, including tributaries. Periodic data collection began in June of 2014 and continued through August 2014. Measurements were made at each of the sites to capture pre/post snowmelt, summer (high ET) and fall (low ET) conditions. Discharge was measured using a SonTek Flow Tracker (velocity-area method). Temperature and conductivity were measured at each discharge site using the YSI 600 OMS. GPS coordinates for each discharge site were recorded using a Garmin® GPSMAP 64. The purpose for these measurements is to determine areas of significant groundwater-surface water interaction.
