The USGS Water Mission Area’s Sediment Science Program provides leadership, training, and methods development in fluvial sediment science for the USGS and its external partners. Overarching objectives of the USGS Sediment Science Program (which includes the Federal Interagency Sedimentation Project) include: 1) developing and promoting innovative sediment monitoring techniques that result in cost effective, accurate, and high resolution fluvial sediment data for the Nation; 2) advancing sediment science through collaboration with external agencies to ensure USGS science and leadership directions are aligned with external agency and public needs; and 3) providing technical support to sediment data collectors and scientists, in an effort to improve quality assurance/quality control practices and efficiencies in field data collection and analysis.
