Thames catchment hydrometric and water quality data 2013-17

Urban water quality and hydrometric data for a range of urban developments in in the south of England. Water quality has been obtained from fortnightly-monthly sampling of river water using a Manta 2 sonde, and includes the parameters: ammonium, DO, pH, specific conductivity, temperature and turbidity. Rainfall was measured using a number of 2mm tipping bucket raingauges across the urban sites and through QC deriving a 15min time series of rainfall in millimetres for each site. Flow in cumecs was derived from in-situ stream channel measurements of velocity and depth using ultrasonic flow monitoring gauges.

Provenance & quality

Hydrological and water quality data from urban catchments. Data time-step ranges from sub-hourly to monthly. Period of record is from autumn 2013 to spring 2017 with the bulk of the dataset being 24 month duration from autumn 2013. Depth and velocity data for small streams are converted to discharge measurements using cross-sectional information.
