This portion of the USGS data release presents sediment grain-size data from samples on the Elwha River delta, Washington, in February 2016 (USGS Field Activity Number 2016-608-FA). Surface sediment was collected at a total of 83 locations using a small ponar, or 'grab', sampler from the R/V Frontier in water depths between 1 and 17 m around the delta. An additional 18 samples were collected by hand at low tide. A handheld global satellite navigation system (GNSS) receiver was used to determine the locations of sediment samples. Grab samples that yielded less than 50 g of sediment were omitted from analysis and are classified as "no sample". The grain-size distributions of samples that yielded more than 50 g of...
