Summary

The acoustic Doppler current meter (ADCP) used in this study outputs binary data files containing measurement scheme, location, time, velocity, backscatter, boat heading, depth, and other parameters. These data are provided here in the manufacturer's "classic ASCII" format, as described in READMEforADCP.txt file associated with this data release. We also collected water samples for suspended-sediment concentration, with co-located ADCP backscatter data. These data are provided in a separate file indicating date, time, and location of these observations. Data were collected at three locations in Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta in California: Lindsey Slough; Mokelumne River; and Old River.

Purpose

This project is focused on understanding the sediment trapping properties of invasive aquatic vegetation in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta in California. The working hypothesis is that the vegetation is preferentially trapping suspended sediment, and the data were collected to investigate this hypothesis.
