Summary

Water velocities were measured in the Calumet Harbor for 5 dates in 2015 and 2016 using Teledyne Rio Grande 600 kHz acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP). The data were georeferenced with differential Dlobal Positioning System (GPS) receivers with submeter accuracy. These velocity data were collected in cooperation with the US Army Corps of Engineers, Chicago District. ADCP data were collected on the following dates and for the following purposes: May 12, 2015: Water velocities in the Calumet Harbor and Calumet River. Unsteady discharges in the Calumet River mouth. September 9, 2015: Water velocities in the Calumet Harbor and Calumet River mouth. October 5, 2015: Water velocities in the Calumet Harbor and Calumet River mouth. [...]
