This resource contains water quality data (suspended solids and phosphorus concentrations, turbidity, as well as other chemistry parameters and constituents) at 108 monitoring stations in Sweden between the years 2010 and 2012. The monitoring stations are included in national and regional monitoring programs, research projects and the "Coordinated recipient monitoring" program. Data is available from the website
The resource also contains data from the agricultural catchment U8 which served as a case study for the use of a turbidity sensor to estimate total phosphorus loads. The catchment is part of the national monitoring program for agricultural catchments. More information and the whole dataset regarding this program can be found in The current dataset for U8 contains flow data, turbidity sensor data, manual and flow proportional concentrations of suspended solids, total phosphorus, particulate phosphorus, dissolved phosphorus and other constituents concentrations such as nitrogen and TOC.
