Moody, J.A., 2017, Residence Times and Alluvial Architecture of a Sediment Superslug in Response to Unsteady-flow Conditions in Spring Creek (1996-2016): U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This data release consists of four Excel files (one for each cross section) containing worksheets corresponding to each channel cross-section survey (~25-31) between 1996 and 2014. These worksheets contain the basic survey data (dates, instruments, reference elevations, foresights, distances from reference pins, and elevations). An additional worksheet contains the measured unit-volume (m^3/m) of chronostratigraphic units deposited during the time interval between two sequential surveys and the unit-volumes of each chronostratigraphic unit eroded during the same time interval. A final worksheet contains the age and transit-time distributions for selected surveys.

These data were collected to gain insight into the unsteady geomorphic processes controlling sediment transport after a wildfire disturbance. They also will enable interested persons to examine the method of calculation residence times, and will provide the basic data for their own analysis. Or the data can be used to test and verify possible models of sediment storage and transport under unsteady conditions.
