Effects of spates and drying on macroinvertebrate assemblages of an intermittent and a perennial prairie stream
The U.S. Geological Survey obtained measurements of channel geometry, flow velocity, and river discharge from five rivers in Alaska September 18–20, 2016, to support research on remote sensing of river discharge. The streamflow data were acquired from the Knik, Matanuska, Chena, and Salcha Rivers and Montana Creek using TeleDyne RD Instruments Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs), including the RioPro, StreamPro, and RiverRay models. The original *.mmt and *.pd0 format files are provided in this data release. This data release supports the following article: Legleiter, C.J., Kinzel, P.J., and Nelson, J.M., 2017, Remote measurement of river discharge using thermal particle image velocimetry (PIV) and various...
Physical Habitat Utilization of Fish in a Sonoran Desert Stream, Arizona, Southwestern United States
Field measurements of flow velocity and optical image sequences acquired from the Salcha and Tanana Rivers in Alaska in 2018 and 2019 and used for particle image velocimetry (PIV)
This data release includes field measurements of flow velocity and optical image sequences used to derive remotely sensed estimates of surface flow velocities via particle image velocimetry (PIV) from two rivers in Alaska. These data were acquired from the Salcha River on August 31, 2018, and the Tanana River on July 24, 2019. The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of inferring flow velocities from optical image sequences acquired from a helicopter hovering above each river by tracking water surface features via various PIV algorithms and to develop a modular workflow for performing this type of analysis. Remote sensing of flow velocity could provide a more efficient, cost-effective alternative...

Acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) measurements of flow depth and velocity from the Blue River, Colorado, October 18, 2018
Field measurements of flow depth and velocity and river discharge were collected from two cross-sections on the Blue River in Colorado using an acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP). These data were used to assess the accuracy of surface flow velocities inferred from thermal image time series, acquired from an unmanned aircraft system (UAS), via particle image velocimetry (PIV). These data sets were collected to support research focused on developing innovative methods for non-contact measurement of river discharge based on various forms of remotely sensed data. The ADCP data were collected with a SonTek RiverSurveyor S5 mounted on a hydroboard towed behind an inflatable kayak. Four passes were made across...

Evidence of prehistoric flooding and the potential for future extreme flooding at Coyote Wash, Yucca Mountain, Nye County, Nevada
Effect of water current on foraging behaviour of the rheophilic cyprinid Chondrostoma nasus (L.) during ontogeny: Evidence of a trade-off between energetic gain and swimming costs
Field measurements of flow velocity were acquired from a reach of the Salcha River in Alaska, August 31, 2018, to support research on estimating surface flow velocities from remotely sensed data via particle image velocimetry (PIV). The velocity measurements included in this data release were obtained using a TRDI RiverRay acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) deployed from a boat with an outboard motor. This data release provides depth-averaged flow velocities derived from the raw ADCP data using the TRDI WinRiver II processing software. The spatial location of each velocity measurement was obtained using a differential GPS included as part of the RiverRay instrument package. The map projection and datum...
