Pebble count data for two gravel bars on the Rio Grande above Elephant Butte Reservoir, New Mexico, USA (September 2022)


Wolman pebble counts were conducted on point bars along the Rio Grande channel upstream of Elephant Butte Reservoir in September 2022 to characterize the typical grain sizes of gravels that are commonly found on point bars, mid-channel bars, and on the Rio Grande channel bed (Wolman, 1954).
