Brief descriptionPhysico-chemical parameters of the surface water from two
permanent sampling sites on the Samford Creek, southeast
Queensland, Australia, are determined. The parameters include
temperature, pH, turbidity, dissolved oxygen and conductivity.
In addition, a velocity Doppler measures flow rate and creek
height at these two locations. This data is collected
continuously and averaged over 10-minute intervals to
investigate the effects of land use change, in particular
urbanisation, on the aquatic system in a peri-urban environment.
hown here are daily averages of the 10-minute data. Further, the
data will be used to validate a catchment hydrological model of
the area using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT), which
will simulate the effects of different land use scenarios on the
catchment water balance and nutrient fluxes.
Data time period: 2012-09-01 to 2012-10-30
