This data release includes turbidity, discharge, suspended-sediment concentration (SSC) and particle-size data that were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) between February 2013 and January 2017 at the Duwamish River, Washington, within the tidal influence at river kilometer 16.7 (USGS site 12113390; Duwamish River at Golf Course at Tukwila, WA). Additionally included in this release are the regression model archive summaries (MAS) that were developed between SSC and turbidity as well as SSC and discharge to estimate 15-minute SSC. Suspended-sediment loads were calculated from the computed SSC and time-series discharge data for every 15-minute interval during the study period.
This data release includes time series data collected at the Bremerton Naval Complex, Bremerton WA. Groundwater levels and water quality parameters in two monitoring wells were recorded every 15 minutes during a 7-month deployment. Time series data were collected from June 29, 2018, to February 26, 2019. Field deployment details and quality assurance methods are included in the following paragraphs. Groundwater monitoring well MW-709 was monitored using two data loggers. The first data logger is a non-vented pressure transducer (In-Situ Rugged TROLL 100) that was deployed resting on the well bottom (BOT). The well measurement point (MP) elevation is 16.86 feet above NAVD88 with a total depth from MP of 30.00 feet...
This release includes all data collected in support of a juvenile Chinook salmon exposure study designed to understand the retention of microplastic clothing fibers (hereon refered to as "microfibers") after feeding. To understand the potential impacts of microfiber ingestion to fish, we ran a feeding experiment with juvenile Chinook salmon to determine if ingested fibers are retained and/or digestion rates altered over a full, experimentally determined, 10 day digestion period. Data includes: fish weights, microfiber counts, and quality assurance (QA) data for the experiment. QA steps are detailed in the process section of the metadata.
Data included in this release are from Pacific sand lance and water, sediment and suspended particulate matter collected at two sites in Puget Sound, Washington, which were evaluated for PCB concentration. PCB congener data are stored in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Environmental Contaminant Data Management System (ECDMS), accessible through the Wildlife & Environmental Contaminants Mapper ( The ECDMS is a searchable database, and records can be exported as Excel files. Data in this data release are included in two ECDMS Catalog Numbers: G08003 and G08004.
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact
