Sediment Concentration and Velocity Data to Assess Trapping by Submerged Vegetation

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

The acoustic Doppler current meter (ADCP) used in this study outputs binary data files containing measurement scheme, location, time, velocity, backscatter, boat heading, depth, and other parameters. These data are provided here in the manufacturer's "classic ASCII" format, as described in READMEforADCP.txt file associated with this data release. We also collected water samples for suspended-sediment concentration, with co-located ADCP backscatter data. These data are provided in a separate file indicating date, time, and location of these observations. Data were collected at three locations in Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta in California: Lindsey Slough; Mokelumne River; and Old River.
