Surveyed coordinates and elevations in a 2017 resurvey of previously established cross sections on the Little Snake and Yampa rivers in Lily and Deerlodge parks, Colorado

September 20, 2022

These data were compiled for the National Park Service and Upper Colorado River Endangered Fish Recovery Program. Objective(s) of our study were to resurvey previously established cross sections on the Yampa and Little Snake rivers in the Deerlodge Park area to document changes in channel width, depth, and cross-sectional area. A secondary purpose of this study was to document the location of the cross-section endpoints using modern Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements so that future researchers may easily replicate these surveys. These data represent the 2017 resurvey coordinates and elevations of previously established cross sections on the Little Snake and Yampa rivers. These data were collected in Lily and Deerlodge parks, Colorado on October 17 and 18, 2017. These data were collected by Ronald Griffiths and Joel Unema (U.S. Geological Survey), and Christina Leonard (Utah State University) using real-time kinematic (RTK) GPS positioning. These data can be used to locate previously surveyed cross sections compute channel changes.
