Spatial distribution of layer-averaged velocity (0-4 m above the bed) measured in the ACL slip on the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal near Lemont, IL (December 7, 2010)

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

These data were collected using a 1200 kHz TRDI Rio Grande acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) in mode 12 with 25 centimeter bins from a moving boat. The data were georeferenced with a Hemisphere Crescent A100 differential Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver with submeter accuracy. The data have been layer-averaged over the lower portion of the water column (0 to 4 meters above the bed). These data were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) concurrently with environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling in this reach of the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). Data were processed using the Velocity Mapping Toolbox (Parsons and others, 2013). NOTE: Any data assigned a value of "-9999" are bad or missing data and should not be used for analysis. Parsons, D.
