Abstract: Nutrient monitoring is conducted at 26 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERR) from four locations within or adjacent to the reserve on a monthly basis of the following parameters: orthophosphate, ammonium, nitrite, nitrate, and chlorophyll a. Note: Reserves may collect additional parameters which are available by searching the Yearly Files directory.

Purpose: Research objectives The System-wide Monitoring Program (SWMP) water quality initiative began within the GTMNERR in 2001. There are presently four permanent stations at which YSI 6600 datasondes have been deployed for continuously monitoring a suite of selected abiotic parameters at 30 min intervals. The positions of these stations allow for comparisons between relatively pristine versus more ... View entire text
