Yorkshire Derwent catchment sediment fingerprinting of instream sediment and catchment soils

Sediment and soil samples were collected during a six-month project in 2018 looking at the sources of sediment within the River Derwent Catchment, Yorkshire, UK. The data shows the mineralogical composition of each sample site, processed using X-ray powder diffraction (XRD). The data has been used to understand where instream sediment in the River Derwent is coming from. This information can be used to inform catchment management.

Provenance & quality

Sixty samples across the River Derwent Catchment, UK; the sample sites were chosen as case study sub-catchments in the catchment to ground truth erosion risk mapping work carried out. The sub-catchments show areas within the catchment that have a range of erosion risk and underlying geology. Samples were collected in the field. The sample was crushed and a sub-sample was processed in a laboratory using X-ray powder diffraction (XRD). The data is the raw output from the XRD (2 theta values and the count). This data is used to identify the different minerals present within the sample used for sediment fingerprinting.
