Willamette River Bathymetric Survey

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) collected bathymetric data from the main stem Willamette River in March of 2002. These cross-sectional and longitudinal profile data were important in filling a large data gap and were instrumental in the creation of a representative model grid for the Willamette River.
