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 Measurements are taken every 30 minutes over a two to four week period from April 1 through the end of December of each year at three locations within the Tivoli Bays component of the Hudson River NERR. One datalogger monitors tributary water (Saw Kill Creek) entering one bay and two dataloggers monitor the Hudson River water flooding and ebbing to and from both bays (Tivoli ... View entire text
