Summary
Continuous water quality data are collected at four historical water quality stations (Station IDs: NECC, NEKD, NELC, NENR) and one current (Station ID: NEEC) located within the Nassau River-St. Johns River Marshes Aquatic Preserve in 30-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
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.
