EDoM measurement campaign: settling velocity and grain size

dataset

In 2018 and 2019 field surveys were conducted to better understand water and sediment exchamge mechanisms between the lower Ems River and the outer Ems estuary. In order to capture the contrasting conditions resulting from river discharge variability, two measurement campaigns were defined: one in August 2018 (local summer with relatively low river discharge) and one in January 2019 (beginning of the wet winter conditions). The collected dataset comprises (per campaign) of 10 observation locations measuring for at least one spring-neap tidal cycle (2 RWS frames RS, 5 bottom mounts BM, and 3 mooring chains MC) 8 simultaneous 13-hrs observations (including fixed stations SB, cross-channel transects CS, and one longitudinal transect). This dataset provides data on settling velocity and grain size collected with a floc camera in 2018 and 2019 (station EMD) and a LISST in 2018 (station KNO).
