Nolin Lake AUV, profile, and discrete data
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers—Louisville District conducted a pilot study on the use of an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) for a survey of water conditions during August 2016 in a portion of Nolin River Lake, Kentucky. The AUV was equipped with sensors for the continuous collection of water-quality measurements for dissolved oxygen, pH, specific conductance, temperature, turbidity, total chlorophyll, and blue-green algae concentrations. In addition to the AUV survey, algae-related samples were collected at various points in the study area of the lake and along depth profiles. This digital dataset contains the phytoplankton community data.
