This dataset contains the following data types from the Coos Bay Estuary, Oregon collected 2017-2019:

(1) water-column profiles of salinity, temperature, pressure, and turbidity collected using a conductivity/temperature/depth (CTD) sensor outfitted with a peripheral optical backscatter sensor (OBS) used to measure turbidity

(2) water-column velocity data collected using a vessel-mounted acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP)

(3) time-series measurements of water level, temperature, and turbidity collected using small instruments mounted in near-bed moorings and a piling (four files total)

(4) grain-size distributions of seabed grab samples and short push cores.


Data (1) were collected throughout the estuary from the research vessel Pluteus or research vessel Pugettia from the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology, using an RBR profiling CTD with OBS (two instruments were alternated), throughout the project period.

Data (2) were collected using an RDI 600 kHz ADCP during a January 2018 survey from the research vessel Pugettia. The ADCP was mounted on the rear of the vessel with integrated Hemisphere V104s GPS receiver.

Data (3) were collected using RBR CTDs with OBSs mounted on small moorings deployed on the seabed or affixed to a piling.

Data (4) were collected using a petite ponar sampler or grab sampler from the research vessel Pugettia or research vessel Pluteus, or using short push cores collected via personal watercraft. Data were analyzed by laser diffraction sizers at the WHOI, OSU, or IU labs.

Data are in NetCDF.
