Summary

Borehole erosion tests were performed to quantify sediment erosion rates as a function of depth below grade and flow speed at locations along the Sacramento and American Rivers in 2019. The dataset consists of: - borehole caliper files describing the initial geometry of the borehole, and its shape after each test flow event, - where available, a digital time series describing discharge into the hole - where available, a digital time series describing water level in the water supply tank - log sheets with details such as test location, date, and personnel The data have been interpreted to describe erosion rate as a function of location, depth, and flow speed.

Purpose

The data were collected to reveal potential erosion rates beside the American and Sacramento Rivers near Sacramento, California. Large flow events could erode surface sediments and dig into material that is currently buried. What is being released is the raw dataset that could be used to compute erosion rates. Interpretation of this dataset is being provided in a USGS Scientific Investigations Report authored by Paul Work and Daniel Livsey.
