Water Survey of Canada—SEDEX file
The Water Survey of Canada has been collecting and publishing data regarding sediment transported by streams in Canada since 1961. The SEDEX file contains historical daily mean suspended sediment concentrations in milligrams per litre from gauging stations across Canada. Data were collected from 1961 to 1979. These datasets have been converted from their legacy file structures and encoding schemes so they can be used by contemporary computers that are based upon the ASCII character-encoding scheme. Each dataset will require specialized software such as a statistical tool, to interpret and analyze the content in each file. The attached codebook describes the file’s structure and defines the variables contained in each field. Each code book is a compilation of the summary description of the dataset as provided by the creating department. As such, it is available in English only.
