Summary

Water velocities were measured in the Des Plaines River from approximately river mile 286 to river mile 284 on October 19–21, 2015 using Teledyne Rio Grande 1200 kHz acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP). The data were georeferenced with differential GPS receivers with submeter accuracy. These velocity data were collected in support of the US Army Corps of Engineers Great Lakes and Mississippi River Interbasin Study (GLMRIS), and were concurrent with a dye-tracing study. ADCP data were collected in the approach channel of the Brandon Road Lock and downstream in the main channel of the Des Plaines River to determine the spatial distribution of depth-averaged velocity in the river on October 19–21, 2015. The data have been depth­-averaged [...]
