Accelerometer scour monitor data on the Sauk River, Washington, Water Year 2018

December 1, 2021

Accelerometer scour monitors were deployed on the Sauk River, Washington during Water Year 2018 as part of a study on the timing of streambed scour in salmon-spawning habitat. This data release contains data of the three-dimensional orientation recorded at 15-minute intervals for the accelerometer monitors. Each accelerometer scour monitor was comprised of one to two individual accelerometers that were deployed in a vertical profile within the streambed. Thirty-one accelerometer scour monitors were deployed, but 7 accelerometer accelerometer scour monitors were recovered. This data release contains the geospatial information about the 31 accelerometer scour monitors that were deployed and three-dimensional orientation for the 7 accelerometer scour monitors that were recovered.
