ABSTRACT:
Time series of tracer (Rhodamine WT) concentration data representing a "break-through curve" resulting from a single, multi-scale tracer test conducted along the length of Lookout Creek, from its 2nd-order headwaters through its 5th-order main stem. The longitudinal tracer test involved an in-stream injection of Rhodamine WT over 78 hrs, followed by monitoring at eight downstream locations for five months, starting in mid-June 2003 through the middle of November 2003. The injection site was located below the upper Old Growth Trail bridge. The monitoring sites include one downstream of the injection site, above and below the Cold Creek confluence, below the lower Old Growth Trail bridge, below Mack Creek confluence, above and below McRae Creek confluence, and at the HJA headquarters. Three additional inter-order tracer tests (IOTT) were carried out between each of the major stream confluences along Lookout Creek. The injection site for the McRae Creek IOTT was located below the McRae Cr. confluence and was monitored just downstream, at the end of the main floodplain, and at HJA headquarters. The injection site for the Mack Creek IOTT was located below the Mack Cr. confluence and was monitored just downstream, at an unnamed tributary midway between Mack Cr. and McRae Cr., and above the McRae Cr. confluence. The injection site for the Cold Creek IOTT was located below the Cold Cr. confluence and was monitored just downstream, at Longer Cr., and at the lower Old Growth Trail bridge. Concentration break through curves are available for all of the monitoring sites for the longitudinal and inter-order tracer tests. Flux break through curves are available for most of the monitoring sites. STAMMT-L model estimates for hyporheic exchange is listed for most of the monitoring sites.
