Description:
Abstract:

nawqa_strm is a line coverage of the streams and rivers in the Cook Inlet
Basin National Water-Quality Asessment (NAWQA) study unit. The coverage
was created using 1:2,000,000 digital line graphs (DLG).

Purpose:

The purpose of this coverage is (1) to present a general overview of the number of streams and rivers located in the Cook Inlet watershed and (2)to serve as a guide for selecting water-quality sampling sites.

Supplemental_Information:

Procedures_Used:

The coverage was created by USGS and Alaska Department of Natural Resources (ADNR) personnel using USGS 1:2,000,000 digital line graphs (DLG). Procedures followed were those outlined by Domaratz and others (1982).

Revisions:

No revisions are planned for this dataset. If stream and river data do become available at smaller scales, the dataset would probably be updated.

Reviews_Applied_to_Data:

Coverage was reviewed by Roy Glass. An editorial review of the documentation was done by Liska Snyder.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:

In this coverage, standard items are used in the arc attribute table. Two additional items were added: MAJOR1 and MINOR1. MAJOR1 indicates if the river is one of the major rivers of Alaska - Copper, Susitna, Kuskokwim, Yukon, Koyukuk, Kobuk, Noatak, or Colville. MINOR1 indicates that the river is not one of the major rivers of Alaska. The Susitna River is the only river classified as MAJOR = 1 within this coverage.
