Data Characteristics (Entity and Attribute Overview):

Data Characteristics:

The data set is organized in a spreadsheet that provides river chemistry composition, units and site location of 14 points along the Ji-Parana river basin. Data was acquired monthly from 1999 to 2001.

Data Application and Derivation:

River biogeochemical characterization and modeling

Quality Assessment (Data Quality Attribute Accuracy Report):

Quality Assessment:

All data sets were checked for inconsistencies.

Process Description:

Data Acquisition Materials and Methods:

We divided the Ji-Parana river basin into 14 drainage units, according to the river network morphology and degree of land-use impact. Four categories of land use impact were determined as a function of the percentage of pasture coverage : low (0 to 15%); medium (15 to 30%); high (30 to 50%) and very high (50 to 75%). Each sector corresponded to a sampling point where river bigeochemistry is being determinated by our group, as described in detail elsewhere (Victoria et al., 2000). Water samples were taken from the middle of the river channel with a Niskin bottle. Aliquots of sample were filtered, stored in polyethylene bottles and preserved with thymol. Each sample was analyze for ions (Ca2+, Mg2+, Na+, K+, Cl-) and PO43-, NO3, NO, NO2, DIN, TIN, DOC, DIC, TOC, TSS, CSS, UDOM, Electrical conductivity, pH, Dissolved Oxygen, 13C, 15N and 18O
