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 four dataloggers are deployed at Mar Negro area, major component of Jobos Bay Estuarine Research Reserve, and are suspended from a pole at one foot from the bottom of the selected site. Measurements are taken at thirty (30) minute intervals for approximately two-week periods. The sites are identified as representative of areas within the reserve and comparable to the sites ...
