Summary

A series of linear regression models were developed and calibrated for the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers. The linear regression models were calibrated using acoustic and suspended-sediment concentration data collected from March through November 2016 and 2017. The estimates of suspended-sediment concentrations from the linear regression were used to calculate loads. The calibrated models were used to improve understanding of sediment transport processes and increase accuracy of estimating sediment concentrations and loads for the Lower Minnesota River, the Mississippi River, and Lake Pepin, as part of the associated report, U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2018–5165 (https://doi.org/10.3133/sir20185165).

Purpose

These linear regression models were created to increase the accuracy of estimating suspended-sediment concentrations, loads, and help determine sources and sinks along the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers, Minnesota. The development of the models’ input and output files included in this data release are documented in U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2018–5165 (https://doi.org/10.3133/sir20185165).
