Elkhorn Slough (ELK) NERR Water Quality Metadata January - December 2001 Last updated February 4, 2003
Entry ID: CDMO_elkwq01-12.01m

Abstract: Water quality monitoring is conducted at 26 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERR) at four locations within or adjacent to the reserve. The following parameters are collected at least every 30 minutes: water temperature, specific conductivity, salinity, percent saturation, dissolved oxygen concentration, water depth, pH and turbidity. All water quality data loggers will be deployed from a known depth from the bottom at each site.

Purpose: Research objectives Measurements are taken every 30 minutes over a three to four week period at four sites in Elkhorn Slough. One site, South Marsh (SM), is in a relatively unimpacted side channel of the slough and the second, Azevedo Pond (AP), is in a pond that receives fertilizer and pesticide runoff from an adjoining strawberry field.
