Summary

Boat-mounted acoustic doppler current profilers (ADCPs) were used to collect velocity data on the Columbia River in a small area near Northport, WA. Velocity surveys were collected during two surveys at high-flow, high-stage conditions in May 2018. Bathymetric data were also collected during one of the surveys using a single-beam echo-sounder. The datasets here provide 1) raw ADCP and single-beam survey data, 2) processed summaries of the data, primarily in geospatial data formats, and 3) summary visualizations of transect-averaged velocity and depth characteristics of the surveyed reach.

Purpose

Data were collected to characterize high-discharge, near-bed velocities over a gravel bar downstream of the Northport Smelter (de-commissioned 1921) in order to inform potential restoration projects.
