This section of the data release includes core images in the format of photos (JPG) that have been compressed into a zipped file (2018LakePowellCoring_CorePhotos.zip). It is Part 4 (of four) in this data release and contains images of the cleaned archival half from split cores as they appeared immediately after splitting (late March and early April 2019). Each photo includes a ruler (in centimeters) and X-Rite ColorChecker Classic color correction card that may be used for corrections. Drillhole information, such as location and total recovery, are outlined in “Part 1 – Drillhole information from the 2018 coring project in Lake Powell, Utah” (2018LakePowellCoring_DrillholeInfo.csv) of this data release. Each drillhole...

These data were compiled for analyses of sediment transport within the Chippewa River, WI. Objective(s) of our study were to determine sand loads contributed by the Chippewa River to the Mississippi River. These data include physical suspended-sediment samples, acoustical suspended-sediment measurements, acoustical suspended-sediment loads, quasi-continuous measurements of bed-elevation, multibeam sonar survey data, and longitudinal profiles of the bed-elevation at certain locations. These data were collected in the Chippewa River in 2018 and 2019. Acoustical suspended-sediment data also include data from March and April 2020. These data were collected by the USGS Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center and...

This section of the data release includes drillhole information in the format of a comma-separated value (CSV) file (2018LakePowellCoring_DrillholeInfo.csv). It is Part 1 (of four) in this data release and represents the broadest hierarchical information on the dataset including the drillhole name, location, water depth, sediments top and bottom, drillhole depth, and recovery for each coring location. Each drillhole comprises multiple cores which are outlined in “Part 2 – Core and core section information from the 2018 coring project in Lake Powell, Utah” (2018LakePowellCoring_CoreSectionInfo.csv) of this data release. Core logs and spectrophotometry data are available in “Part 3 – Multi-Sensor Core Logger and spectrophotometry...

The Lake Powell Coring Project was a USGS research effort, in cooperation with the Utah Department of Environmental Quality, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and U.S. National Park Service. In the fall of 2018, hydraulic piston cores targeted sediment that had been deposited in Lake Powell. This large reservoir on the Colorado River in Utah and Arizona was created after the completion of Glen Canyon Dam in 1963. Retrieval and analysis of cores was undertaken in response to the Gold King mine release from the Bonita Peak Mining District in Colorado on August 5, 2015. This event resulted in the containment loss of three-million gallons of mine-impacted waters which flowed from the Animas River into the San Juan River,...

Hyperspectral image data from the Niobrara River, a dynamic, sand-bed channel in northern Nebraska, were acquired in November 2012 and again in August 2016 to support research on remote sensing of rivers, particularly retrieval of water depth and tracking of mobile bedforms. These data were collected by the Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (CASI) 1500H manufactured by ITRES Research Limited. The data were acquired from fixed wing aircraft and have spatial resolutions (pixel sizes) from 0.5 - 0.6 m. The data consist of a large number of spectral bands spanning the visible and near infrared wavelengths and have been radiometrically corrected. The image pixel values represent spectral radiance units of 1 uW cm-2...

During autumn 2009 and winter 2010, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), conducted a hydrographic survey using a multibeam echosounder system (MBES). The survey was from river mile (RM) 130 to 142 on the Snake River, and from RM 0 to 2 on the Clearwater River areas of Lower Granite Reservoir. The survey mapped the part of the river that was accessible to the boat and the echosounder equipment, but very shallow areas along the banks that were inaccessible or too shallow to be measured with echosounder equipment were not mapped. The survey was conducted in 1-mile segments, and the data were combined to provide a continuous digital elevation dataset of the...

This section of the data release includes core and core section information in the format of a comma-separated value (CSV) file (2018LakePowellCoring_CoreSectionInfo.csv). It is Part 2 (of four) in this data release and provides detailed core information. Complete recovery of a core resulted in approximately 3 m of sediment, which was sectioned into lengths not exceeding 1.5 m shipboard. Thus, all cores with >50% recovery contain multiple sections. This CSV includes drillhole, core, and core section identifiers, section lengths, section tops and bottoms, scaled section tops and bottoms, filenames for corresponding core images, and drilling comments. Drillhole information, such as location and total recovery, are...

This section of the data release includes core log and spectrophotometry data in the format of a comma-separated value (CSV) file (2018LakePowellCoring_CoreLogData.csv). It is Part 3 (of four) in this data release and provides geophysical core logs at 0.5-cm intervals from a Multi-Sensor Core Logger and Konica Minolta spectrophotometer. This CSV includes the depth in section and hole for each logged point, p-wave amplitude and velocity, gamma density, loop- and point-sensor magnetic susceptibility, electrical resistivity, colorspace data, and measured reflectance wavelengths. Drillhole information, such as location and total recovery, are outlined in “Part 1 – Drillhole information from the 2018 coring project in...

Seepage rate and direction measured with a seepage metre modified for use in flowing water were greatly variable along a 300-m reach of a shallow, gravel-bed river and depended primarily on the local-scale bed topography. The median value of seepage measured at 24 locations was 24 cm/day, but seepage measured at specific sites ranged from −340 to +237 cm/day. Seepage also varied substantially over periods of hours to days and occasionally reversed direction in response to evolution of the sediment bed. Vertical hydraulic conductivity was related to seepage direction and was larger during upward seepage than during downward seepage; with differences ranging from 4 to 40% in areas of active sediment transport to more...

Field measurements of water depth were collected from the Niobrara River, a dynamic, sand-bed channel in northern Nebraska, in November 2012 and again in August 2016 to support research on remote sensing of rivers, particularly retrieval of water depth and tracking of mobile bedforms. These data were obtained by conducting topographic surveys with Trimble R8 and R10 RTK GPS receivers with a local base station and also by measuring depths with a SonTek RiverSurveyor S5 acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP). The data are provided in a series of tables saved as *.csv files. All tables include, at a minimum, easting and northing spatial coordinates and depths; other attributes in some of the tables include descriptive...
