Fluorometric Procedures for Dye Tracing
Download Full Text
This manual describes the current fluorometric procedures used by the U.S. Geological Survey in dye tracer studies such as time of travel, disper- sion, reaeration, and dilution-type discharge measurements. The advantages of dye tracing are (1) the low detection and measurement limits, and (2) the simplicity and accuracy of measuring dye tracer concentrations using fluoro- metric techniques. The manual contains necessary background information about fluorescence, dyes, and fluorometers and a description of fluorometric operation and cali- bration procedures as a guide for laboratory and field use. The background information should be useful to anyone wishing to experiment with dyes, fluorometer components, or procedures different from those described. In addition, a brief section is included on aerial photography because of its possible use to supplement ground-level fluorometry.
