Summary

Data set contains depth and velocity grids centerpoints generated from hydrodynamic model (SRH-2D) simulations run for a range of discharges. Date range corresponds to month(s) that bathymetric survey was performed. Three study reaches were considered in this analysis: the Fairview reach of the Yellowstone River, MT, the Miami and Lisbon-Jameson reaches of the Lower Missouri River. Data and application are described in detail in accompanying journal article (Erwin et al., 2017).

Purpose

Hydrodynamic models were run to evaluate physical habitat dynamics in Lower Missouri River. The models simulate hydraulics only; i.e. the simulations assume a static bed and there were no morphodynamic computations. Modeled conditions reflect the channel geometry at the time survey data were acquired; substantial changes in channel form may have occured since the time surveys were conducted, thus modeled conditions may not reflect present channel form or alignment. Modeled flow depths and velocities should not be couple with biotic data collected at a time other than the time of the bathymetric surveys.
