Response variables derived from predicted high-frequency chloride concentrations and specific conductance values

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

This data set contains 18 metrics used to describe patterns in specific conductance (SC) and chloride concentrations in 93 streams located across the eastern United States. These data were quantified for an analysis described in Moore and others (in review). All metrics were quantified for a water year and a median was taken across all years for which data were available to provide a single value for each site. High-frequency SC and chloride were measured or estimated at sub-daily time steps from 2-minute intervals to hourly intervals (e.g., high-frequency) depending on the site. Moore, J., R. Fanelli, and A. Sekellick. In review. High-frequency data reveal deicing salts drive elevated conductivity and chloride along with pervasive and frequent exceedances of the EPA aquatic life criteria for chloride in urban streams. Submitted to Environmental Science and Technology.
