Hydrodynamic time-series data from Whale's Tail South marsh in Eden Landing Ecological Reserve in Alameda County, CA in 2021 and 2022

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

Hydrodynamic and sediment transport time-series data, including water depth, velocity, turbidity, conductivity, and temperature, were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center in South San Francisco Bay and in the Whale's Tail South marsh in Eden Landing Ecological Reserve in Alameda County, CA in 2021 and 2022. Data files are grouped by data type and season (summer and winter). At Bay sites, instruments were deployed on small quadpods. In the tidal creek, instruments were attached to grates mounted directly on the sediment bed. Marsh sites consisted of one transect of six stations perpendicular to the bay-marsh interface, and a second transect perpendicular to a tidal creek. Note that marsh stations were positioned fairly high in the tidal frame (close to the mean higher-high water elevation), so they were inundated less than 10 percent of the time. Instruments at the Bay stations were inundated most of the time but were subaerial at low tide. Data are only valid when the instruments were submerged. Users are advised to assess data quality carefully, and to check metadata for instrument information, as platform deployment times and data-processing methods varied.
