Unema, J.A., and Topping, D., 2018, Geomorphic Change-Sediment Transport Data for Kanab Creek, Arizona, USA: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


These data were compiled to accompany flow modeling work on Kanab Creek near the mouth (USGS gage 09403850). The data include topographic data collected by a remote sensing detection light detection and ranging (LIDAR) system and surveying total station in June 2017, high water marks from six floods from 2011 to 2013, and control points and gage structures. Topographic data include ground topography collected by LIDAR and channel bathymetry collected by total station survey of a 600 meter reach of Kanab Creek, ending at the confluence with the Colorado River in Grand Canyon, Arizona. High water mark data include sets from six floods collected by USGS personnel using total station surveys.

The purpose of these data are for flow modeling efforts to better define the stage discharge relationship at the Kanab Creek abv Mouth (09403850) gaging station. They can also be used to better understand historic flood discharges and provide a baseline data set for future geomorphic change detection.
