Summary

Bed sediments were collected by the USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center (PCMSC) in two submerged agricultural tracts, Liberty Island and Little Holland Tract, in the northern Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, California. Samples were analyzed for grain size distribution, bulk density, or both. Analyses were conducted using PCMSC sediment lab standard techniques (see “Process Step” in metadata). This effort was part of a large interdisciplinary study supported by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation to investigate how shallow water habitats in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta function and whether they provide good habitat for native fish species, including the Delta smelt. Bed sediment properties, including grain size and bulk density, [...]

Purpose

These data will be used to inform studies of sediment resuspension and transport in Liberty Island and Little Holland Tract and to evaluate the potential for flooded agricultural tracts to contribute to elevated turbidity in adjacent waters.
