Sediment Transport in the Tanana River near Fairbanks, Alaska, 1982

Description: From abstract: Suspended-sediment and bedload-transport rates for the Tanana River near Fairbanks can be related to water discharge and annual sediment loads can be computed using these relations. For a site at Fairbanks the annual loads in 1982 were 26.1 million tons of suspended sediment and 227,000 metric tons of bedload. Data collected at five other sites within a 40-kilometer reach of the river indicate very similar suspended-sediment-transport relations but bedload-transport relations varied from site to site. For all sites bedload is on the order of 1 percent of suspended-sediment load.

Suspended Sediment in Selected Streams of Southeastern Montana

Description: From purpose and scope: The purpose of this report is to summarize and evaluate fluvial-sediment data collected in the study area by the U.S. Geological Survey. The principal products of this report are sediment concentration and load statistics, sediment-transport curves, calculated mean annual sediment yields at selected stations, and an areal sediment-yield map. A secondary purpose is to describe sediment relationships between stations and basins and to identify environmental factors that are important in determining sediment yield.

Uranium Concentrations in Stream Waters and Sediments from Selected Sites in the Eastern Seward Peninsula, Koyukuk, and Charley River Areas, and Across South-Central Alaska

Description: During the summer of 1975, the Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys (DGGS) conducted a 6-week reconnaissance in widespread areas of Alaska as part of the National Uranium Resource Evaluation (NURE) program sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE). Water, stream sediment, and bedrock samples were taken from the eastern Seward Peninsula, from north of Koyukuk River, from the Charley River area, and from across south-central Alaska, to aid in determining the uranium potential of the state.

Hydrologic Effects of Storing Liquified Sewage Sludge on Strip-Mined Land, Fulton County, Illinois

Description: From introduction: In 1971, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) began a cooperative study to measure stream discharge, suspended-sediment load, and chemical quality of surface waters draining the project area. In 1976, the study was expanded to include measurement of ground-water levels and quality. The general hydrologic system in the vicinity has been described by Patterson, Fuentes, and Toler (1982).

Measurement and Prediction of Sediment Yields in Wisconsin Streams

Description: From introduction: This report presents practical and useful sediment-yield information for Wisconsin. Measured and estimated sediment yields are supplemented by information on suspended-sediment concentration and particle size of suspended and bed material for 84 sites in the State. To expand the usefulness of these data, an additional section in the report presents a method to estimate or predict sediment yields in ungaged streams.

The Effects of Highway Construction on Sediment Discharge into Blockhouse Creek and Steam Valley Run, Pennsylvania

Description: From abstract: This report presents data collected between October 1972 and September 1977 to find "the effects of highway construction in the thirty-eight square mile Blockhouse Creek basin" in Pennsylvania. It contains sketches, graphs, photographs, and tables.

The Shelf-Slope Transition-Canyon and Upper Slope Sedimentary Processes on the Southern Margin of Georges Bank

Description: A report about sedimentary processes on the southern margin of Georges Bank which is based on observations from research submersibles of bottom features, on size analyses of sediment samples, and on measurements of current strength and flow direction.

Weir Jetty Performance: Hydraulic and Sedimentary Considerations: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Description: Final report regarding studies of weir jetties as an alternative for jetty design at tidal inlets. "The hydraulic model investigation was performed to study important design parameters for a weir jetty system including weir length, elevation, orientation with respect to the shoreline and the conventional portion of the jetty structure, tidal currents over the weir section, flow patterns in the vicinity of the weir section, sediment movement over the weir and effects of the weir jetty on accretion, and erosion upcoast of the jetty system" (abstract, para. 2).

Data Package of Samples Collected for Hydrogeologic and Geochemical Characterization: 300 Area RI/FS Sediment Cores

Description: This is a data package for sediment samples received from the 300 FF 5 OU. This report was prepared for CHPRC. Between August 16, 2010 and April 25, 2011 sediment samples were received from 300-FF-5 for geochemical studies. The analyses for this project were performed at the 331 building located in the 300 Area of the Hanford Site. The analyses were performed according to Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) approved procedures and/or nationally recognized test procedures. The data sets include the sample identification numbers, analytical results, estimated quantification limits (EQL), and quality control data. The preparatory and analytical quality control requirements, calibration requirements, acceptance criteria, and failure actions are defined in the on-line QA plan 'Conducting Analytical Work in Support of Regulatory Programs' (CAW). This QA plan implements the Hanford Analytical Services Quality Assurance Requirements Documents (HASQARD) for PNNL.

Sediment Characteristics and Bioavailability of Sorbed Neutral Organic Compounds

Description: Several sediment characteristics were analyzed to determine their suitability for use as potential normalization factors for the bioavailability of neutral organic compounds sorbed to sediments. Percent organic carbon, cation exchange capacity and particle surface area were measured sediment characteristics that varied sufficiently to encompass the range in observed sediment toxicity. Laboratory sediment toxicity test data using fluoranthene suggest that there is no biologically significant correlation between sediment toxicity and sediment characteristics (organic carbon, cation exchange capacity, particle size distribution, particle surface area). Fluoranthene amended sediments with similar organic carbon contents do not yield similar toxicities due to sorbed fluoranthene and thus do not support the organic carbon normalization approach for evaluating sediment quality or for sediment criteria development.

Water Quality and Streamflow Characteristics, Raritan River Basin, New Jersey

Description: Abstract: The findings of a problem-oriented, river-system investigation of the water quality and streamflow characteristics of the Raritan River, N.J. are described. Information on streamflow duration, time-of-travel measurements, and analyses of chemical, biochemical and physical-water quality are summarized and used to define relations existing between water quality, streamflow, geology, and environmental development in the basin's hydrologic system. Stream quality, particularly in the lower urban areas of the basin, is shown to be deteriorating with time at most of the sampling sites reported. For example, average dissolved-oxygen concentration is reported to be undersaturated at all sampling sites and is decreasing with time at most sites. Biochemical-oxygen demand is increasing at most sites, as are the dissolved-solids content.

Nonpoint-Source Discharges in Pequea Creek Basin, Pennsylvania, 1977

Description: From abstract: The objective of this project was to assess the magnitudes and types of nonpoint discharges that affect the water quality of Pequea Creek. The project included the determination of (1) the total discharge of suspended sediment, nitrogen, and phosphorus from the basin; (2) intermittent storm and base-flow discharges from six subbasin sites of varying size, geology, and land use; (3) the difference in magnitudes of the discharges during base-flow periods and storms; and (4) which variables most affect the transport of these constituents.
