USGS Sediment Data Portal

The USGS sediment data portal helps users identify, access, and interpret USGS suspended-sediment and related data. It allows users to view the location of sediment sites in the context of various geospatial data layers and has tools to let users select sites of interest. Daily and/or discrete suspended sediment, streamflow, and related data can then be downloaded for the entire country.
