USGS Super Gages Monitor Continuous Water-Quality at Streamflow Gages

Tim Lathrop, Hydrologist, USGS Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Water Science Center, trlathro@usgs.gov

WHEN:  January 30, 2019;  11:30 am – 1:00 pm

WHERE: Wilma H. Schiermeier Olentangy River Wetland Research Park, 352 Dodridge St, Columbus OH


The United States Geological Survey operates twelve Super Gage sites in Indiana, cooperating with a variety of organizations (https://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/2015/3041/pdf/fs2015-3041.pdf). Super Gages provide real-time estimates of concentrations and loads of suspended sediment, total nitrogen, and/or total phosphorus within watersheds where they are deployed (https://nrtwq.usgs.gov/in/).  Tasks performed at each site often include quantification of streamflow, operation of continuous water-quality monitors, discrete sampling, and modeling of constituents not easily measured in real-time. Continuous, and publicly available data: 1) highlight 15-minute, daily, and event-driven fluctuations (https://waterdata.usgs.gov/in/nwis/current/?type=quality); 2) provide richer data sets for understanding relations between water quality, hydrology, geology, and land use; and 3) promote more effective resource management.

Insights into the composition of the 2018 CyanoHAB on Lake Erie based on spectral decomposition of visible remote sensing images

Dr. Joseph Ortiz, Department of Geology, Kent State University, jortiz@kent.edu

WHEN:  October 17, 2018;  11:30 am – 1:00 pm

WHERE: Wilma H. Schiermeier Olentangy River Wetland Research Park, 352 Dodridge St, Columbus OH


Lake Erie has recently been listed as an impaired water body due to the perennial cyanobacterial and harmful algal bloom (CyanoHAB) that develops from spring until fall in its Western Basin. Research developed at Kent State in conjunction with NASA Glenn provides an effective means of identifying the optically-active constituents present in water bodies, and differentiates the composition of complex CyanoHABs. The spectral decomposition method partitions cyanobacterial constituents from algal, pigment degradation products and identifies suspended sediment as minerals and oxides.
