Summary
Abstract: Water quality monitoring is conducted at 26 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERR) at four locations within or adjacent to the reserve. The following parameters are collected at least every 30 minutes: water temperature, specific conductivity, salinity, percent saturation, dissolved oxygen concentration, water depth, pH and turbidity. All water quality data loggers will be deployed from a known depth from the bottom at each site.

Purpose: Research objectives Four long-term monitoring stations have been established along the estuarine gradient and in a range of runoff in order to collect quality baseline information and improve our understanding of tidal dynamics and watershed inputs. South Marsh (SM) is in a relatively unimpacted side channel of the slough, Azevedo Pond (AP) is in a pond that receives fertilizer and pesticide ... View entire text

Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: Anomalous/Suspect Data January: Azevedo Pond Salinity, conductivity, DO mg/L, turbidity, depth and pH data are suspect from Jan 01 00:00 through the end of the month due to errors in the temperature probe yet these data correlated with previous and later data when a new temperature probe was deployed. Low salinity and high turbidity data from January 01 10:00 though ... View entire text
