Description

Chesapeake Bay Program long-term tidal monitoring stations

Usage

stationMasterList

Format

A data frame with 145 rows and 19 variables:

station

Water quality station code

state

State location

locationType

As identified in the state trend reports, whether this station is in the mainstem or tributary monitoring

waterbody

Location as identified in the CBP CIMS database

latitude

From the CBP CIMS database, and verified in a GIS map

longitude

From the CBP CIMS database, and verified in a GIS map

cbSeg92

Match to CB 92 Segmentation scheme (for 303d list)

usgsGageName

Manual match to a USGS fall-line monitoring station (See usgsGages$siteName)

usgsGageID

USGS station code (See usgsGages$siteNumber)

usgsGageMatch

Identifies how the USGS-to-TribStation match was made. Direct: If the station falls within a tributary with a USGS station, or in the mainstem. Indirect: If the station is in a small sub-tributary of one of the major tributaries. The USGS station may not be that representative, but it is better than matching to the Susquehanna. SusDefault: If there was no clear match, the tidal station was matched to the Susquehanna River.

hydroTerm

"flow" or "salinity" to indicate whether to model flow or salinity effects (if missing, "flow" assumed)

flwAvgWin

list of averaging windows if flow is selected in hydroTerm (options are: 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 90, 120, 150, 180, 210)

flwParms

list of parameters to model with flow (regardless of hydroTerm value), each parameter separated by a space

salParms

list of parameters to model with salinity (regardless of hydroTerm value), each parameter separated by a space

notes

Optional note to track updates
