Abstract: 

This is a long-term monitoring of water discharge and water level at Prieta Stream. The monitoring point is located at Pool 0: which is the same location where we sample stream chemistry. Measurements are taken automatically with a pressure transducer: every 15 minutes. Measure are originally of pressure: which are translated to water level using the reference gauge. Using an equation provided by Dr. Fred Scatena: water level is converted into discharge.

Stage height to discharge equation created by Fred N Scatena used from 2006 to 3-26-2013 10 AM: discharge (m3/sec) = 1.095 - 1.585 * stage + 0.578 * stage * stage

Stage height to discharge equation created by William H McDowell and Jody Potter used from 3-26-2013 10:15 to present: discharge (m3/sec) = 0.0005*((stage)^8.8846)*35.314666

Methodology

Methods: 

We are using an Onset Computers Pressure Transducer located at the bottom of pool 0: inside the pipe that holds the stage gauge. A second transducer is located outside the water to correct data for atmospheric changes in pressure.
