Description Hydrodynamic and sediment transport time-series data, including water depth, velocity, turbidity, conductivity, and temperature, were 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 in April 2017, and Middle River and the Mokelumne River in March 2018. Data files are grouped by location. At each of the three sites, data were collected at stations outside and within patches of vegetation, to determine how submerged invasive vegetation influences tidal currents and suspended-sediment concentration. The Table below shows the data types collected at each station, and classifies stations as Vegetated (V) or Unvegetated (U). These data were collected as part of a study of the effects of invasive aquatic vegetation on sediment transport in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. At times, vegetation caught on instrument frames (both within and outside patches) compromised data quality. Users are advised to check data quality carefully, and to check metadata and instrument information, as individual instrument deployment times vary. [More]
