Model archive summary for turbidity derived suspended-sediment concentration at USGS station 01349527 Mohawk River above State Highway 30A at Fonda, New York

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

This child item model archive summary documents a surrogate regression model to estimate suspended-sediment concentration (SSC) at the Mohawk River above State Highway 30A at Fonda, New York. (U.S. Geological Survey station number 01349527). The methods used follow USGS guidance in relevant Office of Surface Water/Office of Water Quality Technical Memoranda and USGS Techniques and Methods, book 3, chap. 4 (Rasmussen and others, 2009). Thirty-nine concurrent measurements of SSC and turbidity, collected from June 12, 2015, through May 28, 2020, were used in the model calibration dataset. Samples were collected across 94 percent of the range in observed discharge and 24 percent of the range in observed turbidity during the model calibration period. The greatest sampled discharges and turbidities during the model calibration period were exceeded less than 0.1 percent and 0.2 percent of the time, respectively. Suspended-sediment concentrations were estimated from an ordinary least squares regression between SSC and turbidity developed using the U.S. Geological Survey Surrogate Analysis and Index Developer (SAID) Tool (Domanski and others, 2015).
