This dataset contains a stage-discharge relationship developed for the iUTAH GAMUT Network aquatic site on Red Butte Creek near Cottams Grove (RB_CG_BA). Discharge measurements were collected by a SonTek FlowTracker. Measured stage and discharge and the curve are contained in the Rating Curve file. Information on the site conditions and any issues with discharge measurements are documented in the README file. Files associated with each measurement (e.g., output by the FlowTracker instrument) are contained in the .zip directory. This rating curve was used to generate discharge data through 12/31/2015. New versions of these files may be loaded when new flow measurements are taken. Resulting discharge data is published in the iUTAH GAMUT operational databases and may be accessed via http://data.iutahepscor.org/tsa.
