The complete collection of the RUSS data from Lake Mead is available in a CSV (comma separated values) format that can be read directly by (or easily imported into) common database and spreadsheet programs. See our description page of the file contents.

The ".csv" file has been compressed into a ".zip" file -- common file decompression programs such as WinZip for Windows, or ZipIt for the Mac knows how to restore it. The file size is reduced over 80% by compression.

These data should be considered "provisional" until otherwise indicated.
