Title:
Aquatic Macroinvertebrates in Inyo, Mono and Alpine Counties, California
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: Database
Description:
Abstract:
This dataset contains long-term monitoring data for acquatic macroinvertebrates in Inyo, Mono, and Alpine Counties (California). There are approximately 100 sites and 1000 total samples. Sites are described using UTM coordinates derived via GPS. The data is available in a spreadsheet organized species by site.
Purpose:
This data can be used for bio-assessment, to measure the relative effects of non point-source pollutants, and Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) values. This dataset can be loaded into a GIS using the lat/long coordinates associated with each sample site.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
Each sample site contains physical habitat characteristics and measurements of abundance for each species of macroinvetebrate found. Most samples include measurements of coarse and fine organic particulate matter and density of Chlorophyll A. Sample sites are described using UTM coordinates derived from GPS.
