Abstract

These data were compiled to calibrate suspended sediment concentration (SSC) remote sensing algorithms. They were collected originally by several agencies at each of 430 suspended sediment sampling locations operated in the United States (USGS) [USGS, 2018], Canada (HYDAT) [HYDAT, 2018], South America (ANA) [ANA, 2018], and Taiwan (WRA) [WRA, 2018] between 1984–present. Landsat data are from Landsat missions 5 and 7. The Landsat LT1 Spectral Reflectance product data in this compilation were retrieved automatically using Google Earth Engine.
