Summary

Geo-referenced two dimensional velocity profiles collected at discrete cross-sections over an approximately 2km stretch of the Sacramento River. These data were collected over a range of river conditions (stage and discharge) on eight separate dates in February and March of 2016 and May of 2017. Data are available as .csv files contained in the attached .zip file.

Purpose

These data were collected for several purposes: (1) To document the strength of secondary circulation in a river bend; (2) To document how the velocity structure changes as a function of stage and discharge; (3) To help in make fish entrainment estimates along the river over a range of stage and discharge conditions.
