Description

Timeseries of water level, tidal velocity, backscatter, suspended sediment concentration, and sediment flux derived from acoustic doppler current profilers. Sediment fluxes calculated according to Dyer decomposition equation and Yu et al. (2012) analytical model. Two deployments in 2013: February and September. Two locations in the estuary: Site 1 near the mouth of the river (48° 16.842’ N, 004° 16.009’ W), and Site 3 in the central estuary (48° 14.851’ N, 004° 10.140’ W).
