FLUOROMETRIC PROCEDURES FOR DYE TRACING
1. Purpose and objectives
To provide background information on instruments and procedures used
in dye tracer studies.
The manual (Wilson and others, 1986) describes fluorometric procedures used in dye tracer studies such as time of travel, dispersion, reaeration,
and dilution-type discharge measurements. It includes information on fluorescence, dyes, and fluorometers and a description of fluorometer
operation and calibration procedures as a guide for laboratory and field
5. Operational requirements and restrictions
6. Form of presentation
Manual, written in English, is available (Wilson and others, 1986).
7. Operational experience
Extensive use within the United States.
8. Originator and technical support
U.S. Geological Survey, Office of Surface Water, Reston, Virginia, USA.
10. Conditions on use
Manual is available free of charge.
