Lacy, J.R., Ferreira, J.C.T., Dailey, E.T., Dartnell, P., Drexler, J.Z., Allen, R.M., and Stevens, A., 2020, Sediment transport and aquatic vegetation data from three locations in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, California, 2017 to 2018: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


These data present suspended particle size distributions collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center at three locations in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Data were collected in Lindsey Slough on April 4 and April 18, 2017, and near the mouth of the Mokelumne River and in Middle River on March 14, 2018 by deploying a Sequoia Scientific Laser In-situ Scattering and Transmissometry instrument (LISST 100x) from a small vessel during the deployment of the hydrographic time series data instruments. At each site, data were collected 1 to 2 times, generally near the water surface, at mid depth, and near the sediment bed. These data were collected as part of a study on the effects of invasive [...]

These data were collected for the purpose of estimating particle settling velocity. The survey was conducted as part of a cooperative project, with the USGS California Water Science Center and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, to provide critical data about the impact of Invasive Aquatic Vegetation (IAV) on fish habitat and the health of marshes to agencies that manage and control IAV in the Delta. These data are intended for science researchers, students, policy makers, and the general public.
