Summary
Abstract: The raw data files contain a point ID, date of collection, salinity values in ppt, and longitude and latitude. For some dates water temperature, time of data collection, and conductivity in millisiemens were recorded. Surface salinity values for Florida Bay are available beginning in November 1994 through November 2001 and bottom salinity values from November 1994 through December 1996. The data ...
