Transient storage in Huey Creek, January 1992 - Field and Modeling data

Summary

Abstract: 

Abstract takes an excerpt from Runkel, R.L., McKnight, D.M. and Andrews, E.D., 1998, Analysis of transient storage subject to unsteady flow: Diel
flow variation in an Antarctic stream.
 
This dataset describes a modeling framework for the analysis of transient storage in stream systems with unsteady flows. The framework couples a kinematic wave routing model with a solute transport model that includes transient storage. The routing model provides time-varying flows and cross-sectional areas that are used as input to the solute transport model. The modeling framework was used to quantify stream/substream interaction in Huey Creek, an Antarctic stream fed exclusively by glacial meltwater.
 
These studies are based on tracer-dilution data obtained during periods of steady flow, data combines model and experiments
 
 

This aerial photo (Gooseff, Nov 2010) of Huey Creek was taken before the seasonal flow started shows the complexities of the streambed and branching.
