Summary

Data are included from three parts of the research in the Delaware River focusing on three sites known to support populations of Alasmidonta heterodon (dwarf wedgemussel). Site Rating Curve Data was data used to create unique river stage to river discharge models for each of three sites used to model how site conditions varied compared to USGS River Gage conditions. Site Bathymetry and Water Depth data were used to create river bottom topography and water depth maps for the three sites. A compilation of 6pm river temperature data were used to create temperature prediction models for each of the three sites.

Purpose

Data were obtained in order to develop bathymetric maps, rating curve relationships between site stage and river flow conditions, and water temperature to better understand the habitat needs of the dwarf wedgemussel, Alasmidonta heterodon, to inform conservation of the species and management of the river.
