Summary

Water depth, turbidity, and current velocity time-series data were collected in Little Holland Tract in 2016. Depth (from pressure) and velocity were measured in high-frequency (8 Hz) bursts. Burst means represent tidal stage and currents, and burst data can be used to determine wave height, period, and direction, and wave-orbital velocity. 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 [...]

Purpose

These data will be used to determine the range of turbidity and suspended-sediment concentration (SSC) in Little Holland Tract and the extent to which wind waves contribute to turbidity, to investigate physical attributes of flooded habitats that promote enhanced turbidity, and to evaluate the potential for flooded agricultural tracts to contribute to elevated turbidity in adjacent waters.
