Description Water depth, turbidity, and current velocity time-series data were collected in Little Holland Tract in 2016. Depth (from pressure) and velocity were measured in high-frequency (8 Hz) bursts. Burst means represent tidal stage and currents, and burst data can be used to determine wave height, period, direction, and wave-orbital velocity. The turbidity sensors were calibrated to suspended-sediment concentration measured in water samples collected on site. The calibration and fit parameters for all of the turbidity sensors used in the study are tabulated and provided with the data. Data were sequentially added to this data release as they were collected and post-processed. Typically, each zip folder for a deployment period contains two files of data from a bursting pressure sensor and two data files from the velocimeter, which includes data from the optical backscatter sensor.
