Description

This dataset provides measurements of total suspended solids concentrations made on discrete water samples collected in surface waters (~0.5 m) on the southern coast of Louisiana, USA during the Delta-X 2021 Spring campaign. Samples were collected in the Atchafalaya River and Terrebonne Basins from 2021-03-25 to 2021-04-22. During the field campaign, samples were collected in multiple channels of varying width (from a few meters to >100m), near Delta-X intensive study sites, and in open bays and lakes and at locations in the nearshore Gulf of Mexico. For each in situ collection, the water sample volume was filtered, and the suspended particles retained on the filter were weighed after drying. The total suspended solids (TSS) concentration was calculated as the difference of the filter weight (before and after filtration) divided by the volume filtered, reported in units mg L-1.
