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. A difference
in how marshes can change water quality is being studied by comparing a marsh creek site to a
river channel site. Measurements are taken every 30 minutes over a 5-14 ... View entire text
