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 Measurements are taken every 30 minutes over a two to four week period from April 1 through the end of November of each year at two locations within the Tivoli Bays component of the Hudson River NERR. One datalogger monitors tributary water (Saw Kill, SK) entering the bay and the other monitors the Hudson River water flooding and ebbing to and from the bay (TS). The objective ... View entire text

Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: Anomalous/Suspect Data April TS: No anomalies to report, instrument not yet deployed (see next section for explanation). SK: Dissolved oxygen and percent saturation data were too high. Post deployment calibration check indicated the dissolved oxygen sensor was bad or needed cleaning (high charge error indicated during next calibration attempt). All oxygen data collected ...
