Lacy, J.R., Allen, R.M., Foster-Martinez, M.R., Ferreira, J.C., and O'Neill, A.C., 2017, Hydrodynamic and sediment transport data from San Pablo Bay and China Camp marsh (northern San Francisco Bay), 2013-2016: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


As part of the hydrodynamic and sediment transport investigations in San Pablo Bay and China Camp Marsh, California, particle size distributions of bed sediments were measured at most instrumented stations and are presented in a comma-delimited values spreadsheet. This portion of the data release presents San Pablo Bay and China Camp Marsh sediment particle size distributions from samples collected during multiple instrument deployments. Users are advised to check the data carefully for sampling time, location, and reference information.

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.
