High resolution water quality samples during storm events (2010-2014) [Wensum DTC]

Continuous measures of hydrochemical parameters of storm water from the Wensum Demonstration Test Catchment, in Norfolk, recorded between 2010 and 2014. Automatic ISCO samplers installed at 7 sites (aka monitoring kiosk A, B, C, D, E, F, M) in this catchment are triggered during storm events to capture hydrochemical parameters every hour during the length of the storm. Those parameters include: pH, electrical conductivity; major ions Ca, Mg, Na, K, SO4 Chlorine, bicarbonate, carbonate, nitrates all in milligrams per litre; total alkalinity (mg CaCO3 per litre); minor ions Si, B, Al, Fe, Mn, nitrogen dioxide, ammonium all in micrograms per litre; total nitrogen, total particulate nitrogen, total dissolved nitrogen, dissolved organic nitrogen all in milligrams per litre; total phosphorus, total particulate phosphorus, total dissolved phosphorus, total reactive phosphorus, phosphates all in micrograms per litre; total carbon, total organic carbon, non-purgeable organic carbon, total suspended solids all in milligrams per litre.
