Spatial distribution of layer-averaged velocity measured in the Calumet Harbor, Illinois (March 25, 2016)

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

Acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) data were collected along a prescribed navigated course throughout Calumet Harbor on March 25, 2016 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 temporally-averaged over a 30-second window to reduce noise. 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. R., Jackson, P. R., Czuba, J. A., Engel, F. L., Rhoads, B. L., Oberg, K. A., Best, J. L., Mueller, D. S., Johnson, K. K. and Riley, J. D.
