Total suspended solids (TSS) and Volatile Suspended Solids (VSS) from White Clay Creek near the Stroud Water Research Center, Avondale, PA, USA. The purpose is to quantify export of inorganic and organic particulate matter from the 725-hectare watershed. Samples consist of those taken at monthly intervals, normally the first Wednesday of each month regardless of weather or flow conditions and those taken after precipitation events. The monthly samples are manual grab samples collected in 5-L polyethylene “space saver” bottles from a few centimeters below the surface and without disturbance to the stream bed. The event samples were collected in response to precipitation of 20 mm or more using an ISCO automated sampler which collected 1-L samples s in polyethylene bottles at hourly intervals through an intake approximately 20 cm above the bed. Each of approximately four events per year are represented by approximately 10 samples selected from the hourly series to characterize the rise, peak, and falling limb of the hydrograph. Additional events are represented by the three samples nearest peak flow.
