Title: Daily Water Sample Suspended Sediment Data for the North Inlet Salt Marsh: Former Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER)/NIN005
Description:
Abstract:
LTER - Long-Term Ecological Research Program/North Inlet Salt Marsh, South Carolina (NIN) LTER/NIN005 [Summary adapted from the LTER Core Dataset Catalog] Suspended sediment data were collected as part of the Daily Water Sample (see LTER/NIN003). Sampling sites are at Oyster Landing, Clambank and Town Creek. Samples are collected daily at 1000 hours EST. Three hundred ml of sample is filtered through a preweighed glass-fiber filter, dried at 100 C and weighed to determine the total suspended sediment concentration. The filter is then ashed at 400 C for 24 hours and reweighed. The weight of the remaining sediment is taken as an estimate of the inorganic suspended sediment (ISS) while the weight loss due to ashing is taken as an estimate of the organic suspended sediment (OSS). Daily TSS, ISS and OSS concentrations concentrations are available for 12 February 1981 until 31 December 1992. The North Inlet site is a former site in the LTER Program. Data were collected from 1980 until 1992. These databases are the result of long-term monitoring begun in the late 1970s and early 1980s in the North Inlet Estuary, Georgetown County, South Carolina. The National Science Foundation funded the Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program in the North Inlet Estuary from 1981 to June, 1993.
