Opatz, C.C., Curran, C.A., Tecca A.E., and Grossman, E.E., 2019, Stage, water velocity and water quality data collected in the Lower Nisqually River, McAllister Creek and tidal channels of the Nisqually River Delta, Thurston County, Washington, February 11, 2016 to September 18, 2017: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


An upward-looking acoustic Doppler velocity meter (ADVM, SonTek SW, 3.0 MHz) located in a tidal channel of the Nisqually River Delta at site D1 (N 47° 05’ 37”/W 122° 43’ 17”) measured water level and current velocity at 15-minute intervals from October 14, 2016 to May 31, 2017 (175 days, excluding missing periods). This site is in a tidal channel at a levee breach where flow is tidally influenced. The water depth of the sensor ranged from 0.44 to 4.41 m. The elevation (NAVD88) of the ADVM sensor was survey by RTN-GPS. The offset to convert all water depth time-series data to water surface elevation (NAVD88) is -0.61 m. The water temperature ranged from -0.4 to 22.7 degrees C but may have been bias during periods of low tide due to [...]
