Summary
Abstract: The four datasondes are deployed at mid-Great Bay, and the Lamprey,
Squamscott and Oyster Rivers. The weather station collects temperature,
barometric pressure, relative humidity, Photosynthetically Active Radiation
(PAR), and wind speed/direction.

Purpose: The Great Bay NERR monitors water quality at four continuous stations
during the ice free months, and weather year round, as part of the System Wide
Monitoring Program (SWMP). This monitoring is done under a cooperative
agreement with UNH Jackson Estuarine Laboratory. Five parameters including
temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, pH, and turbidity are measured every
half hour at each of four locations using YSI 6-series multi parameter
datasondes.
