Summary

This metadata record documents two comma delimited tables that contain information on fallout radionuclides and urban sediments within Dead Run watershed in Catonsville, Baltimore County, Maryland. Measurements include radiological activity for rainwater and sediment samples, sediment particle size information, suspended sediment concentration measurements, elemental composition of sediments, and sediment yields of paved surfaces.

Purpose

The purpose of this data collection was to assess the radiological activity, elemental composition, and particle size of sediments available for transport during storm events within the Dead Run watershed in Catonsville, Baltimore County, Maryland. These data will be used as a factor in estimating sediment transport times for Dead Run watershed, as part of a larger ongoing effort to investigate sediment (and associated nutrient/pollutant) transport and sourcing within urban watersheds.
