Suspended sediment concentration and loads for the South Fork Nooksack River at Saxon Road, Washington, 2010-2016 water years

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

Suspended-sediment samples were collected by USGS and NIT at the USGS streamgage South Fork Nooksack River at Saxon Road (12210000) from July 2010 to February 2016 over a range of discharge and turbidity conditions. Regression equations were developed to estimate the suspended-sediment concentration (SSC) and the concentration of fine suspended-sediment (fSSC; <0.0625 mm) using turbidity as an explanatory variable. An hourly time series of SSC, fSSC, and the uncertainty of individual estimates (prediction intervals with 90 percent confidence) was computed and is provided. A daily time series of suspended-sediment load (SSL) and fine suspended-sediment load (fSSL) derived from hourly SSC and discharge data, was computed for the period of turbidity record. For periods when turbidity data were not available, daily SSL values were estimated by regression or interpolation.
