Summary
Water quality
Parameters
Alkalinity (carbonate as CaCO3, mg/L), apparent color (PCU), biochemical oxygen demand (mg/L), chlorophyll a (corrected and uncorrected, ug/L), chlorophyll/pheophytin ratio, cloud cover (%), depth (ft, m), dissolved oxygen (%, mg/L), Enterococcus group bacteria (cfu/100mL, #/100mL), fecal coliform (cfu/100mL, #/100mL), fluorides (mg/L), nitrogen (ammonia, mg/L), , NH4 Filtered_mg/L, nitrogen (kjeldahl, mg/L), nitrogen (NO2 + NO3, mg/L), pH, pheophytin a (ug/L), phosphorus (mg/L), orthophosphate (mg/L), precipitation (in), salinity (ppt), secchi depth (ft, m), specific conductance (umho/cm), air temperature (deg.

Notes
Combine with SEACAR ID 4053 - same STORET ID numbers Jenna Harper confirmed that the AP program doesn't monitor water quality in Apalachicola Bay. Aquatic Preserve staff collects samples for FDEPs DEAR - Data in STORET
Application
To provide scientists, resource managers, legislators, and other stakeholders a summary of the status of seagrasses in the southern Big Bend region of Florida.
Publications
Reports, monthly summaries from DEAR

Method
Grab samples, secchi disk
Discontinuity
Sampling was done by St. Andrews Resource Management Association and other partners from 1990 until 2016 when CPAP absorbed sampling responsibilities.
