Stream discharge, turbidity, and suspended sediment concentration in Faga'alu watershed, American Samoa from 2012-01-12 to 2016-11-15 (NCEI Accession 0191818)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

Data on water level (stage), turbidity (T), and suspended sediment concentration (SSC) were collected in the Faga'alu watershed in American Samoa from 2012-2016. Stage data were combined with a rating curve to calculate discharge (Q, m3/s). Monitoring sites included a forested site (F1: stage, T, SSC), a site downstream of a quarry (F2: T, SSC), and a site upstream of the discharge point to the ocean (F3: stage, T, SSC). Grab samples of water for SSC were collected at F1, F2, F3, and some supplemental sites. See Messina and Biggs (2016) and Holst-Rice et al (2016) for details.
