Two month-long hydrographic and sedimentation field campaigns were conducted from July 15th, 2014 to August 13th, 2014 and from April 9th, 2015 to May 8th, 2015 within the Mercury Bay-Whitianga Inlet-northern Whitianga Estuary system to fulfill the field data needs of the Waikato Regional Council towards the goal of producing a hydrodynamic model of Mercury Bay. The purpose of this data report is to summarize the instrument deployment locations,durations, and settings that were used during the field campaign. This document also aims to aid the modeler (or other Waikato Regional personnel) in the locating of the desired instrument data files from the accompanying data discs. In all cases, the raw data files have been provided for each instrument. In the instance that a raw data file is in a data format that requires proprietary software from the instrument manufacture to process, an export of the data files to a universally-readable file format has been included (e.g., .txt, .dat, .csv, .etc.) or to a MATLAB file format when necessary. Clarification has been provided for instruments that export data files without headers.
