This dataset contains a stage-discharge relationship developed for the Wasatch Environmental Observatory Red Butte Network aquatic site on Red Butte Creek near Cottam’s Grove Basic Aquatic (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. New versions of these files may be loaded when new flow measurements are taken. Calculated discharge for this site can be found here: https://www.hydroshare.org/resource/4659632bae8a440698b1c6b0f4d3558a/
