Summary

Water depth, turbidity, and current velocity time-series data were collected in Liberty Island Conservation Bank (WVA) in 2017. The turbidity sensors were not calibrated to suspended-sediment concentration at this location. Typically, each zip folder for a deployment period contains two data files from a velocimeter and one data file from a CTD, each of which include data from an optical backscatter sensor. --------- Data were collected from several sites in Little Holland Tract (LHT) and Liberty Island (LI), including the Liberty Island Conservation Bank (LICB), from 2015 to 2017. Table 1 (below) lists the deployment name (DLXXX) and dates for each sampling station location. Station names starting with ‘H’ are in LHT; station names [...]

Purpose

These data will be used to determine the range of turbidity and characterize tidal currents in the Wildlands section of the Liberty Island Conservation Bank, to compare physical attributes of the aquatic habitat in the constructed Wildlands marsh with those of flooded agricultural tracts such as Little Holland Tract and Liberty Island.
