Summary

This data release includes turbidity, discharge, suspended-sediment concentration (SSC) and particle-size data that were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) between February 2013 and January 2017 at the Duwamish River, Washington, within the tidal influence at river kilometer 16.7 (USGS site 12113390; Duwamish River at Golf Course at Tukwila, WA). Additionally included in this release are the regression model archive summaries (MAS) that were developed between SSC and turbidity as well as SSC and discharge to estimate 15-minute SSC. Suspended-sediment loads were calculated from the computed SSC and time-series discharge data for every 15-minute interval during the study period.
