Application
This program is associated with the continuous water quality monitoring program, at every instrument swapout on a monthly basis, a bottom grab sample is collected at each of the three stations in Matlacha Pass: MP1A, MP2B and MP3C, and two stations in Charlotte Harbor, CHWW1 and CHEW1. This provides additional information on nutrients and chlorophyll, to correlate with the continuous water quality parameters.
