These data were collected to measure the physical forces that control sediment flocculation, specifically waves, tidal currents, and turbulence, as well as suspended-sediment concentration in the water column. They were collected as part of a San Francisco Estuary Initute (SFEI)-funded study performed collaboratively with the USGS California Water Science Center. These data are intended for science researchers, students, policy makers, and the general public.
