This collection of more than 1,270 bibliographic references focuses on the numerous environmental factors that affect water quality in the South Platte River basin. This publication is the first product of the U.S. Geological Survey's National Water-Quality Assessment program in the South Platte River basin. To aid in conducting a water-quality assessment for the basin, sources of water-related studies were compiled from computerized literature searches of biologic, chemical, geologic, and hydrologic data bases. Categories of information include: aquatic biology, atmospheric deposition, climate, geology, land use, runoff, sedimentation, surface- and groundwater hydrology, urban runoff, water chemistry, water quality, and water use and management. References date from 1845 through October 1991. The bibliography includes, in some instances, abstracts of the subject reference. Coauthor and subject indices also are included.
