Oxygen dynamics and evaluation of the single-station diel oxygen model across contrasting geologies

Simon J. Parker

Data sets

Hampshire Avon: Dissolved oxygen data collected at one minute intervals from five river reaches C. M. Heppell and S. J. Parker

Short summary
Dissolved oxygen (DO) models typically assume constant ecosystem respiration over the course of a single day. Using a data-driven approach, this research examines this assumption in four streams across two (hydro-)geological types (Chalk and Greensand). Despite hydrogeological equivalence in terms of baseflow index for each hydrogeological pairing, model suitability differed within, rather than across, geology types. This corresponded with associated differences in timings of DO minima.
