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: The purpose of the monitoring program at CBM NERR is to conform to the NERR SWMP monitoring
program looking at trends in water quality over both temporal and spatial scales. Observed
effects of water quality, habitats and living resources in the river channel site and the nearby
emergent tidal fresh marshes are being studied using various comparative ... View entire text
