Description

This dataset provides measurements of total suspended solids concentrations (TSS) of surface waters in the Atchafalaya River and Terrebonne Basins during the spring (2021-03-25 to 2021-04-22) and fall (2021-08-14 to 2021-09-24) field efforts by the Delta-X project. Field sampling was paused on August 25 and resumed on September 13, 2021, due to the landfall of Hurricane Ida on 2021-08-26 approximately 70 km east of the study site. Water quality changes caused by the hurricane were expected to be minimal. Samples were collected from ~0.5 m of surface in multiple channels of varying width (from a few meters to >100 m), near Delta-X intensive study sites, in open bays and lakes, and at few locations in the nearshore Gulf of Mexico. For each collection, the water sample volume was filtered, and the suspended particles retained on the filter were weighed after drying. The TSS concentration was calculated as the difference of the filter weight (before and after filtration) divided by the volume filtered.
