This dataset includes longitudinal measurements of water quality in four streams and rivers across the United States that were collected using the AquaBOT, an unmanned surface vehicle equipped with water quality sensors developed as part of a BETO-funded project ('Spatially resolved measurements of water quality indicators within a bioenergy landscape'). Measured water quality indicators include: nitrate concentration, temperature, specific conductivity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, chlorophyll, and pH. The data can be found in the Excel file and details on the sampling sites, measurement methods, and data are available in the data guide.

These data are associated with the following paper:
Griffiths, N.A., P.S. Levi, J.S. Riggs, C.R. DeRolph, A.M. Fortner, and J.K. Richards. A sensor-equipped unmanned surface vehicle for high-resolution mapping of water quality in streams. Environmental Science & Technology Water. doi: 10.1021/acsestwater.1c00342
