Pebble counts were performed to assess the bed surface grain size distribution at different habitats within a reach of the Big River near Washington State Park, Missouri. These data were collected in support of research assessing the hydraulic conditions of freshwater mussel habitat in the Big River. One component of this investigation was to examine the theoretical stability and instability of sediment particle sizes that are present within mussel habitats as well as within nearby reference habitats. These pebble counts furnished grain size data used for reference sediment stability predictions. Pebble counts were performed at seven different habitats in a study reach on the Big River following the methods of Wolman...
Pebble counts were performed to assess the bed surface grain size distribution at five delineated mussel habitats in the Big River, Missouri. These data were collected in support of research assessing the mussel communities and characteristics of freshwater mussel habitats in the Big River (Albers and others, 2016; Roberts and others, 2016). Pebble counts were performed at the mussel habitats following the methods of Wolman (1954). Grain diameters of 99-100 particles were measured on the intermediate axis. The pebble count data are semi-continuous; grains smaller than 2 mm were classified as sand, and grains larger than 64 mm were classified as either cobble (65-256 mm) or boulder (greater than 256 mm) but measured...

This data release contains river bed surface grain size measurements, water-surface elevation measurements, and digital elevation models (DEMs) for select reaches of the Big River, Missouri. These data were collected in support of research assessing the hydraulic conditions of freshwater mussel habitat in the Big River. The individual metadata associated with each data type describe the process steps, data inputs and sources, and the locations where the data were collected.
Lead (Pb) and calcium (Ca) concentrations were measured in fillet samples of longear sunfish (Lepomis megalotis) and suckers (Catostomidae) collected in 2005‒12 from the Big River, which drains a historical mining area in southeastern Missouri, where a consumption advisory is in effect due to elevated Pb concentrations in fish. Regression analysis indicated that fillet Ca explained 75‒>99% of fillet Pb variation in mining-affected stream reaches. We used analysis-of-covariance to standardize Pb concentration to a common Ca concentration (415 ug/g wet weight), which reduced differences between taxa. Variation among sites and years also was reduced after Ca-normalization, as was the number of samples that exceeded...

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Data Release contains locations and concentrations of metals in various size fractions in floodplain-core, streambed-sediment samples, and sediment deposited on the flood plain from the December 2015 flood and underlying soils collected from along the Middle Big River and tributaries in the Southeast Missouri Barite District from 2012 to 2015. All samples were analyzed either by inductively-coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) or x-ray fluorescence (XRF). Concentrations of metals in quality-assurance samples are also presented to evaluate the effect of sample splitting and compare the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and USGS Missouri Water Science Center XRF units....
