Dataset
Hampshire Avon: Daily discharge, stage and water chemistry data from four tributaries (Sem, Nadder, West Avon, Ebble)

This resource is made available under the terms of the Open Government Licence

This dataset contains discharge and surface water chemistry for the six river reaches of contrasting geology (clay, sand, chalk) in the Hampshire Avon. Manual measurements of discharge by the velocity-area method enabled construction of a stage-discharge relationship for each site. Stream stage was measured using pressure transducers from Summer 2013 to Summer 2015. River water samples were collected at 48-hr intervals from Summer 2013 to Summer 2014 and samples were analysed for selected solutes and suspended sediment.

Quality

Lineage
All data were generated by the authors with help from field and laboratory technicians. Stream stage data generated by the pressure transducers were checked fortnightly (when possible) against manual measurements. As chemical data were generated, checks were made to ensure accuracy (certified reference materials) and precision (repeat measurements) were within accepted tolerance limits. We ensured measured values fell within the calibration range and re-analysed samples where necessary.
