Summary
Abstract: LTER/VCR007:
Water quality monitoring at 10 permanent stations from the mainland
salt marshes to Quinby Inlet was started in July 1988. These stations
are sampled monthly for bacterial abundance, microbial activity
(respiration and incorporation of acetate), dissolved organic carbon
(DOC), particulate organic carbon (POC), pH, salinity, oxygen
concentration, turbidity, temperature, and sediment characteristics.
