Modeled sediment concentration in Barataria Bay, Louisiana from 2012-08-01 to 2012-09-30 (NCEI Accession 0281819)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Modeled sediment concentration in kg/m3 calculated using a ROMS sediment transport model of Barataria Bay, Louisiana. Provided are two netCDF files Kehui_Xu_Sediment.nc and Kehui_Xu_Grid.nc that contain the modeled sediment concentrations as the variable sand_01 as well as the parameters that describe the model grid from Ou et al. (2021). The gridded output is from 2012-08-01 to 2012-09-30 in 6 hourly time steps with 8 terrain following vertical layers (s-rho). Sediment parameters are based on the ones used in the studies of Xu et al.(2011) and Xu et al. (2016).
