The Ashtabula River Basin is located in northeast Ohio. The river enters Lake Erie at the city of Ashtabula, which is about 55 miles east of Cleveland, OH, and 40 miles west of Erie, PA. The purpose of the overall Ashtabula River monitoring program was to provide the necessary boundary condition, initial condition, and verification data for a comprehensive numerical simulation of Asbtabula River. This report provides a permanent record of the instrumentation and techniques employed during the field investigation and makes the data collected available for use. Representative results of the field investigation of the Ashtabula River system from June 1994 through November 1995 are presented. Measurements consist of current speed and direction at five ranges for one river discharge, suspended sediment samples at each of the ranges, bottom sediment samples at twelve locations, water-level monitoring at four locations, and suspended sediment measurements at three locations. Field investigation equipment and methods used to collect the data are described, representative results of the data reduction efforts are shown, and the results of these efforts are summarized.
