Topic Sediment: Storm Intensity and Lag Time in Sonoma Creek 2001-2002
Caption:  The Chart displays the lag time (the hours between peak rainfall and peak turbidity readings) compared with rainfall intensity at the Eldridge Station on Sonoma Creek in 2001 and 2002. This small data set shows an inverse relationship between rainfall intensity (red bars) and lag time (blue bars). Storms with greater intensity are likely to shorten the lag time as stream levels quickly rise. Data provided by the Sonoma Ecology Center. Click Info Links for more information.
