Summary
Continuous water quality data are collected at one water quality station (Station ID: YRMAP1) located within the Yellow River Marsh Aquatic Preserve in 15-minute intervals for eight parameters using protocols established by the National Estuarine Research Reserve's System-Wide Monitoring Program. AP continuous WQ protocols and metadata: https://www.floridaapdata.org/
Parameters
water temperature (°C), specific conductivity (mS/cm), salinity (psu), dissolved oxygen (%), dissolved oxygen (mg/L), depth (m), pH and turbidity (NTU)
Notes
AP was closed for a couple of years around the 2011 timeframe. The AP manager couldn't confirm if WQ monitoring took place prior to it re-opening in January 2015.
Application
To measure changes in estuarine waters that help provide a better understanding of how human activities and natural events can affect coastal resources and to provide valuable data on the short-term variability and long-term changes in estuaries to researchers, natural resource managers and other coastal decision-makers.
