Geomorphic metrics across four catchments in Clarksburg, Maryland, 2002-19

July 13, 2022

This dataset contains geomorphic metrics across 32 cross-sections at four catchments within the Clarksburg Special Protection Area in Montgomery County, Maryland. These data were derived from raw cross-sectional data collected by the Montgomery County, Maryland Department of Environmental Protection. Geomorphic metrics include channel area, bed location, channel depth, channel width, and bank movement for each bank. The catchment types included in this assessment were a majority agricultural catchment which began to be developed in 2016, a forested "control" catchment, and two urbanizing catchments with a high density of stormwater best management practices, in which cross-sectional surveys were collected pre-, during, and post-construction.
