The focus of the first study-unit survey of the Eastern Iowa Basins was an assessment of the water quality in the Silurian-Devonian and Upper Carbonate aquifers in the eastern part of the study unit (Savoca and others, ).

As part of the U.S. Geological Survey National Water Quality Assessment Program, water samples were collected (typically monthly) from six small and six large watersheds in eastern Iowa between.

2 Method for Estimating Pesticide Use for County Areas of the Conterminous United States assessment of pesticide use. NAWQA requires data on the full range of pesticide compounds used on major crops (such as corn, soybeans, wheat, and other grains) and specialty crops (such as vegetables, orchards, and vineyards) throughout all the states.

Water quality sensors deployed on boats, buoys, and fixed monitoring stations along rivers allow high frequency monitoring at dense spatial and temporal resolutions. Research characterizing nitrate (NO3–N) delivery along extended reaches of navigable rivers, however, is sparse.

Since land use and stream biogeochemistry can vary within agricultural watersheds, identifying. Eleven streams in the Wapsipinicon, Cedar, Iowa, and Skunk River basins in eastern Iowa were sampled monthly from March through September to assess the occurrence, distribution, and transport of nitrogen, phosphorus, and suspended sediment as part of the U.S.
