Summary
Abstract: During 1990 and 1991, a series of research flows were released from Glen Canyon
Dam. Data collected at the streamflow-gaging station on the Colorado River
above National Canyon near Supai from that period have been compiled and
entered into the U.S. Geological Survey database. The data consist of
measurements of suspended-sediment concentration and sand sizes in suspension,
sand sizes of streambed sediment, and velocity of the Colorado River above
National Canyon near Supai streamflow-gaging site. Velocity and sediment data
are available upon request from the Arizona Water Science Center and from the
U.S. Geological Survey water-quality database
(http://waterdata.usgs.gov/az/nwis/qw).
