Abstract: Continuous, real-time hydrographic data recorders have been installed and
maintained along the Louisiana coast by the La. Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries
in conjunction with the U. S. Geological Survey. The recorders measure
salinity, water temperature, water level, and conductance at all of the
stations. In addition, some stations have the capability of recording wind
speed, wind direction, barometric pressure, rainfall, and air temperature.
