Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Raw and processed data on aeolian sediment transport from the 6-week MegaPeX field campaign at the Sand Motor mega nourishment in The Netherlands. Data was obtained to validate the hypothesis that aeolian sediment transport is supply-limited in this area. Data is obtained using a setup with 8 mobile masts equipped with Wenglor fork laser sensors and Gill 2D WindSonc wind sensors. In addition topographic surveys with RTK-GPS and erosion pins were performed and sediment traps were installed. The dataset contains GPS locations, particle count rates, topographic surveys, small-scale topographic changes, wind speed and direction, precipitation and sediment transport volumes.
