Spatial distribution of layer-averaged velocity measured along two prescribed lines in the Calumet Harbor, Illinois (May 12, 2015)

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

Acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) data were collected at multiple transects spaced in a regular grid throughout Calumet Harbor on May 12, 2015 to determine the spatial distribution of layer-averaged velocities. The data were layer-averaged in 2-foot increments of depth from the bed to the water surface, and spatially averaged over 269-foot intervals to reduce noise and correspond to nodes of an US Army Corps of Engineers existing hydraulic model. Data were processed using the Velocity Mapping Toolbox (Parsons and other, 2013). Any data assigned a value of "­9999" are invalid or missing and should not be used for analysis. Parsons, D.
