Description

This dataset provides river discharge measurements collected at selected locations in the Atchafalaya and Terrebonne Basins within the Mississippi River Delta (MRD) floodplain in coastal Louisiana, USA. The measurements were made during the Delta-X 2021 field efforts from 2021-03-25 to 2021-04-11 (spring) and 2021-08-16 to 2021-09-25 (fall). Channel surveys were conducted with a Teledyne RiverPro acoustic doppler current profiler (ADCP) or a Sontek M9 RiverSurveyor ADCP on selected wide channels (>100 m wide) and a few selected narrow channels (approximately 10 m wide) near the Delta-X intensive study sites. River discharge was measured on cross-channel transects. Reported data include bathymetry, discharge (m3 s-1), and flow velocity.
