Description

This dataset provides in situ measurements of beam attenuation coefficient at 670 nm, average suspended particle size, particle size distribution, and water temperature in surface waters (~0.5 m) of the Atchafalaya and Terrebonne Basins on the southern coast of Louisiana. The field studies were conducted in the Spring and Fall in support of the Delta-X mission and include measurements made in 2021 during March 25 - April 22 and August 14 - September 24. Measurements were made using the Sequoia Scientific Laser In-Situ Scattering and Transmissometer instrument (LISST-200X) 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 a few locations in the nearshore Gulf of Mexico. The data are provided in comma-separated (CSV) format.
