Summary

Files contain hydrodynamic and sediment transport data for the location and deployment indicated. Time-series data of water depth, velocity, turbidity, and temperature were collected in San Pablo Bay and China Camp Marsh as part of the San Francisco Bay Marsh Sediment Experiments. Several instruments were deployed in tidal creek, marsh, mudflat, and Bay locations, gathering data on water depth, velocity, salinity/temperature, and turbidity. Deployment data are grouped by region (Bay channel (main Bay), Bay shallows, tidal creek, or marsh/mudflat/upper tidal creek). Users are advised to check metadata and instrument information carefully for applicable time periods of specific data, as individual instrument deployment times vary. CHC16 [...]

Purpose

Data from these experiments will be used to investigate the spatial and temporal variation in suspended sediment transport at the marsh boundary in order to better inform predictions of marsh resilience, and offer more complete characterizations of sediment transport and conditions within this unique environment. From these data, coincident wave height/period can be calculated for use in sediment transport investigations. These data are intended for policy makers, resource managers, science researchers, students, and the general public.
