Summary
Abstract: The data for each of the collection sites are available for fiscal years 2002-2005. The files are available in several formats. Salinity and temperature were collected for all stations. Stage, discharge, and wind speed and direction were also collected at some of the stations.

Estero Bay is a shallow estuary, across which salinity gradients from freshwater to saltwater occur over ... View entire text
