Dataset description: Water-level, wind-wave, and suspended-sediment concentration (SSC) time-series data from Little Holland Tract (station HWA), Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, California, 2015

Water depth and turbidity time-series data were collected in Little Holland Tract (LHT) in 2015. Depth (from pressure) was measured in high-frequency (6 or 8 Hz) bursts. Burst means represent tidal stage, and burst data can be used to determine wave height and period. 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 one file from an optical backscatter sensor and two files of data from a bursting pressure sensor.
