Assessment of nutrients and water-quality constituents in the North Delta during Yolo Bypass flooding events in March 2017

September 10, 2021

The data release contains data for the spatial and temporal variability of nutrients and related water quality parameters at high spatial resolution in the North Delta in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta of California, USA. The data set includes nitrate, ammonium, phosphate, dissolved organic carbon, temperature, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, and chlorophyll. Data-collection cruises were conducted over two days in March 2017 during a high flow event when Sacramento Valley flood waters inundate the Yolo Bypass.
