Confluence Retirement

Due to the feedback from stakeholders and our commitment to not adversely impact USGS science activities that Confluence supports, we are extending the migration deadline to January 2023.

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is targeted for retirement. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Definition

A Study Reach is a length of stream selected for sampling purposes; it is the principal sampling unit for collecting (and analyzing) physical, chemical, and biological data.

Typically the reach is selected to be representative of the stream's condition and the length sampled is usually proportional to the channel dimensions (i.e. channel width); however, for a particular sampling program the reach length may have a minimum or maximum value (domain range) or be a fixed length within a certain range of values
