# Sediment and stream discharge data for Fraser River at Hope

### Description

A dataset consisting of daily observations of suspended sediment concentration (SSC) (mg/L) and stream discharge (Q) (cu. m/s) for the years 1970-1979 at the Fraser River at Hope station in British Columbia, Canada (Water Survey of Canada station 08MF005). Samples are split into a seven year training period (1970-1976) and a three year testing period (1977-1979).

In terms of structure, `FraserSediment`

is a list with four elements:
`x.1970.1976`

, `y.1970.1976`

, `x.1977.1979`

,
and `y.1977.1979`

. `x.1970.1976`

and `x.1977.1979`

are
matrices with predictor variables: `logQ`

, log-transformed Q; and
`dQ5`

, `dQ30`

, and `dQ90`

, 5-, 30-, and 90-day moving averages
of daily changes in Q. `y.1970.1976`

and `y.1977.1979`

are matrices
with the predictand variable `SSC`

.
