Geomorphic data for the Green River in Canyonlands, Utah, USA (ver. 1.0, June 2020)

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

These data consist of rectified aerial photographs, measurements of active channel width, measurements of river and floodplain bathymetry and topography, and ancillary data. These data are specific to the corridor of the Green River in Canyonlands National Park between Horseshoe Canyon and Deadhorse Canyon, Utah. The time period for these data are 1940 to 2018. The 'Channel Width' shapefile data are measurements of the active channel width of the Green River at 1-km intervals in and near Canyonlands National Park, Utah. The 'Mineral Bottom' csv data are river channel cross-sections for a 3-km study reach of the Green River upstream from Mineral Bottom, Utah. The study reach is near the mouth of Hell Roaring Canyon, 5 km upstream from the Mineral Bottom boat ramp, which is 85 km upstream from the confluence of the Green River with the Colorado River. Six cross-sections were originally established by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in June 1995. Additional cross-sections were added by Utah State University in August 1995. A subset of the cross-sections (where original monuments were found) were re-surveyed by the U.S. Geological Survey Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center in cooperation with Utah State University in June 2015. The raster data are aerial images and digital elevation models (DEMs) for segments of the Green River in and near Canyonlands National Park, Utah. The aerial images depict the river channel and adjacent floodplains for most of the corridor of the Green River in Canyonlands National Park. The images were acquired from public sources and orthorectified and mosaiced for this study. The DEMs cover the river channel and adjacent floodplain for the Fort Bottom segment of the Green River within Canyonlands National Park and include both bathymetric and topographic data. The bathymetric data were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center with funding provided by the National Park Service. The topographic data are airborne lidar data that were collected for the state of Utah by a contractor. The lidar data are available at https://doi.org/10.5069/G9RV0KSQ.
