Salt transport in the lower South Platte River
This work demonstrates how river salinity may be characterized, in terms of both time and space variations. Fifteen years of daily and monthly salinity and flow data have been reduced to monthly, seasonal, and annual statistical characterizations for five river stations and three tributary stations for the lower South Platte River. From these characterizations distance profiles were plotted for flow, TDS, and salt mass flows. The distance profiles and measurements of diversion flows, tributary flows, and point source discharges were the basis for a reach by reach materials balance analysis for ...
