Description:
Abstract:
This portion of the data release presents sediment grain-size data from samples collected from Anahola Valley, Kaua`i, Hawai`i in November, 2015 (USGS Field Activity 2015-671-FA). 63 sand and mud samples were taken from sediment cores that were collected using a ‘Russian’ corer (a hand-held, side-filling peat auger) from two site locations. Site locations were determined using a hand-held global navigation satellite system (GNSS). The grain-size distributions of samples were determined using standard techniques developed by the USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center sediment lab. The grain-size data are provided in a comma-delimited spreadsheet (.csv). Core ANA15-RC1 BR contained two carbonate sand layers (Sand A1from 24.5-29 cm depth and Sand A2 from 32-35 cm depth). Core ANA15-RC6 BR contained a deeper carbonate sand layer (Sand A3 96-114 cm depth).
Purpose:
Data were obtained to analyze vertical grain size trends, and to compare modern and paleo tsunami deposits. These data are intended for science researchers, students, policy makers, and the general public.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report: No formal attribute accuracy tests were conducted
Logical_Consistency_Report: No formal logical accuracy tests were conducted
Completeness_Report:
Samples from the upper 0.5 cm of Sand A1, the bottom 1.0 cm of Sand A2, and the muds in between these sands, from 28-33 cm depth, did not contain enough sediment to perform settling tube analyses. The grain-size distributions for these layers were not measured in the settling tube, but the percents of gravel, sand, and mud were determined from sieving and are included in the data. The remaining dataset is considered complete for the information presented, as described in the abstract. Users are advised to read the rest of the metadata record carefully for additional details.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Cores were collected between November 07, 2015 and November 21, 2015. A handheld global satellite navigation system (GNSS) receiver was used to determine the locations of sediment samples. Sediments were subsampled from cores by hand in the laboratory at 0.2, 0.5, and 1.0 cm vertical intervals.
Process_Date: 20151121
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The grain-size distributions of samples were determined in the USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center sediment lab. Approximately 20 g of sediment was sub-sampled and 10 mL of 35 percent hydrogen peroxide was added to remove organic material in the sample. The sample was heated at 250 degrees C to remove any remaining hydrogen peroxide and was placed in an ultrasonic bath to liberate the fine fraction. Subsequently, the sample was centrifuged for 1.5 hours to remove soluble salts. Samples were funneled through 2 mm and 63 um sieves to separate the gravel (greater than 2 mm), sand (63 um to 2 mm), and mud (less than 63 um). The sand and gravel fractions were dried in an 80-degree C oven and weighed. Five mL of sodium hexametaphosphate was added to the mud fraction and a 20 mL aliquot was taken from a 1 L graduated cylinder to determine the weight of the mud. The sand fraction was run through a 2m settling tube. Measured settling velocities were converted to sizes of equivalent quartz spheres in quarter-phi size intervals. The particle-size distribution of the mud fraction was analyzed separately using a Beckman Coulter LS 13 320, and the gravel, sand, and mud results were integrated into a single grain-size distribution for each sample.
