Radionuclide and Pesticide data for sediment age and source analysis in the Midwest Stream-Quality Assessment Region (2013-2014)

Metadata Updated: July 9, 2019

A study examining the sources and ages of fine-grained bed material (<0.063 mm) was conducted for 99 sites in the USGS NAWQA Midwest Stream Quality Assessment (MSQA) during the summer of 2014, including 15 suspended sediment and 5 cropland top soil samples. Bed material samples were analyzed for radionuclides (7Be, 210Pbex, 137Cs) and pesticides (bifenthrin and DDE); suspended sediment for radionuclides (7Be, 210Pbex, 137Cs): and cropland top soil was analyzed for 210Pbex and 137Cs. Data set includes only those data specifically discussed in a Journal of Environmental Management entitled, Sources and ages of fine-grained sediment to streams using fallout radionuclides in the Midwestern United States, by Allen C. Gellis, Christopher C. Fuller, Peter C. Van Metre. Journal of Environmental Management. In Press.
