Summary
Abstract: Surface water samples for total dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), total
alkalinity (TAlk), and pH were collected from the Altamaha River, Doboy Sound,
Sapelo River and the Duplin River (anchor station near Marsh Landing) during
March 19-21, 2001. DIC was measured using a custom automated DIC analyzer.
Total alkalinity was determined by Gran titration. pH of surface water at
stations was measured on board using a glass electrode. This study was part of
the GCE oceanographic monitoring program, and will be repeated periodically.
