365149109492300 - Laguna Creek below Dennehotso near Kayenta, AZ - 2020/06/02 Terrestrial Lidar Data
This is a terrestrial LiDAR laser scanner dataset of an intermittent waterway named Laguna Creek near the community of Dennehotso, AZ collected on June 2, 2020. The reach scanned for this study is located at the bridge where State Route 160 crosses the waterway. The river channel on the upstream side of the bridge has experienced bank erosion over recent years. A bank stabilization project was implemented by the Arizona Department of Transportation in 2018. This scan is intended to capture the condition of the bank in 2020 and be used to measure any changes to the bank protection that has occurred since the installation.. A Leica MS-60 Multistation was used for the laser scanner data collection. Multiple scans were...
Nutrient Mobilization and Processing in Sonoran Desert Riparian Soils Following Artificial Re-Wetting
Research in river-floodplain systems has emphasized the importance of nutrient delivery by floodwaters, but the mechanisms by which floods make nutrients available are rarely evaluated. Using a laboratory re-wetting experiment, we evaluated the alternative hypotheses that increased nutrient concentrations in riparian groundwater during flash floods are due to (HI) elevated nutrient concentrations in surface floodwaters entering the riparian zone or (H2) re-mobilization of nutrients from riparian soils. We sampled soils from the riparian zone of a 400 m reach of Sycamore Creek, AZ. Two sub-samples from each soil were re-wetted with a solution that mimicked the chemistry of floodwaters, with one subsample simultaneously...
Simulation of summer storms of differing recurrence intervals in a semiarid environment using a kinematic routing scheme
A kinematic flood routing procedure has been devised for a small dendritic headwater gully network on the Western slope of Colorado. the program is spatially-distributed, incorporating lateral inflows from 103 field sites on the network for which channel geometry variables are known. This model, in which a lateral inflow algorithm for the sideslopes between each channel site is convoluted into a Freeze-type (1978) numerical scheme, is fully developed in this paper. Although the field basis of the lateral inflow algorithm has been tested elsewhere (Faulkner, 1990), sensitivity tests were needed for the roughness and hillslope velocity estimates used in the routing procedure. After these successful tests, a suitably...
This is a terrestrial LiDAR laser scanner dataset collected on October 14, 2020, in response to a flow event that occurred on September 8, 2020, at the USGS streamgage 09471580 - San Pedro River at St David, AZ. The reach scanned for this study is located at the bridge where State Route 80 crosses the waterway. A Leica MS-60 Multistation was used for the laser scanner data collection. Multiple scans were combined by setting up the scanner using resection techniques coupled with Leica RTK - GPS equipment. All scan data are corrected using measurements of a reference mark with a known location.
