DescriptionProducing and protecting high-quality streamwater requires background or baseline data from which one can evaluate the impacts of natural and human disturbances. A database was created for chemical analyses of streamwater samples collected during the past several decades from 446 locations on the White Mountain National Forest (304,000 ha in New Hampshire and Maine). The database is described and examples illustrating how the data can be used to examine ranges, trends, and relationships are included.
