Summary
Oyster reef ecology, water quality. Conducted at sites where artificial oyster reefs have been constructed to reduce shoreline erosion, increase habitat, filter pollution, and increase oyster populations.
Parameters
Sediment accumulation, sediment loss, temperature (deg. F), pH, specific conductivity (uS/cm), dissolved oxygen (mg/L, %), salinity (ppt), turbidity (NTU), total nitrogen (mg/L), total phosphorus (mg/L), chlorophyll a (ug/L), secchi depth (ft), depth (ft), oyster counts per bag, size range, species of organisms found in and around the reef
Notes
Oyster reef monitoring data sheets provided by email for reference.
Application
Assess effectiveness of artifical oyster reefs in redcuing shoreline erosion
