Abstract:
Four hydrographic surveys were performed on September 26, 2003, along an east-to-west transect up the Altamaha River in Georgia (Altamaha River Transect, GCE-AL). Vertical CTD profiles were collected at 2km intervals from the -4km to 26km upriver along the transect during various tidal regimes. Conductivity, temperature, pressure, optical back scatter, photosynthetically-available radiation, oxygen and chlorophyll a fluorescence were measured, and depth, salinity and sigma-t were calculated for each profile. Data values collected during the upcast were deleted. This data set was collected as part of the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems LTER quarterly hydrographic monitoring program. GCE Study Site GCE-AL -- Altamaha River, Georgia, USA. Altamaha River transect used for GCE quarterly hydrographic monitoring surveys. Nominal profiling stations are defined every 2km from -4km to 40km (relative to station 0km at the line of demarcation), based on an estimated Thalweg line running up the main river channel.

Access_Constraints: Data Access Policy As a member of the Long Term Ecological Research Network, the Georgia Coastal Ecosystems LTER Program is committed to providing access to data collected under the auspices of our project in a timely fashion. Study results will be published in the scientific literature, and documented data sets and other information will be provided on the World Wide Web for legitimate scientific and educational purposes. Access to GCE resources varies by resource type and user affiliation, and requires acceptance of the GCE LTER Data Use Agreement. Descriptions of the basic data access categories used to classify each resource are as follows: Category Description Maximum waiting period Type 1 Public resources, including most GCE metadata, data from published studies, literature citations, and conference presentations. May also include special reports or unpublished treatments of public data sources. none Type 2 Project resources, including data from GCE core monitoring activities, presentations made at project meetings, and metadata containing proprietary information. 1 year from the end of observations or data analysis Type 3 Proprietary resources, including data from individual directed studies or student projects supported by GCE funds, and resources contributed by GCE-affiliated research programs. 2 years from the end of observations or data analysis Type 4 Sensitive resources, including data sets subject to proprietary or copyright restrictions, containing classified information, or containing information that may compromise the protection of endangered species or habitats. (Note: submission of type 4 data requires written justification and prior approval by the GCE Project Administrator). Specified by Contributor
Use_Constraints:
All publications based on this data set must cite the contributor and Georgia Coastal Ecosystems LTER project, and two copies of the manuscript must be submitted to the GCE-LTER Information Management Office.
