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 The East Bay station collects water quality data associated with runoff from the Tates Hell
Swamp area. This area was ditched, diked, and altered back in the late 1960's and early 1970's
by timber companies. It shortened the drainage period and allowed increased runoff with a
concommittant increase in pH which had a drastic affect ... View entire text
