These data provide information regarding beryllium-7 radioisotope activity, bulk density, and percent organic matter for wetland soils in the immediate outfall region of an operational Mississippi River diversion. From them, information relating to short-term mineral sediment mass accumulation rates and sediment retention rates in the receiving basin can be inferred.
