Sedimentation survey data for Lago Guayabal, December 2017

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

This data release contains spatial data associated with the sedimentation survey of Lago Guayabal conducted during the period December 11- December 14, 2017 by the Puerto Rico office of the Caribbean-Florida Water Science Center (CFWSC) of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The goals of the survey were to determine reservoir infill sedimentation rates, generate a bathymetric map of the reservoir, and create a stage-volume relation. Field data collection involved measuring water depth along predetermined navigation lines. More than 270,000 water-depth points were surveyed along 60 navigation lines and All water-depth data were collected using a Teledyne-Odom Echotrac CVM depth sounder coupled to a Global Positioning System (GPS). Esri ArcGIS software, version 10.5 (Environmental Systems Research Institute, 2017), was used to edit the depth data and create a triangulated irregular network (TIN) model, from which bathymetric contours and a stage-volume relation were generated. This data release includes three spatial features used for the sedimentation analysis of Lago Guayabal in 2017 (water depth data points, reservoir shoreline and bathymetric contours).
