Chloride Concentrations, Conductivity, and Water Temperature Data from Upper Yahara River Watershed Tributaries in Dane County, WI: December 2019 – April 2021
Mendota and Lake Monona in Dane County, WI. HOBO Conductivity loggers continuously
measured absolute conductivity and water temperature every 30 minutes. Breaks in
data collection were due to a calibration period or if the loggers were out of the
water. Grab samples for chloride concentration occurred weekly or biweekly.
Conductivity and water temperature were measured with a field meter at each sampling
excursion. This data was needed for a master’s research thesis with the goal of
characterizing the spatial distribution and loading of chloride in the Upper Yahara
