Daily Estuarine Surface Water Nutrient And Water Quality, Suspended Sediment, and Chlorophyll a Data for the North Inlet Estuary, 1978-1993
Entry ID: baruch_1978


Summary
Abstract: A one 1000 ml (one Liter) water sample was collected daily (at
approximately 1000 hrs EST - but see note below in section 1.2.3
Supplemental Information) at a depth of 0.5 meter below the water's
surface at three sites in the North Inlet salt marsh tidal creeks:
Town Creek, Clambank, and Crab Haul (at the end of the Oyster Landing
dock). The water samples were analyzed for chlorophyll a, phaeophytin,
nitrogen (total whole and dissolved, ammonia, nitrate-nitrite),
phosphorus (total and dissolved and ortho phosphate), organic carbon
[total (TOC), dissolved (DOC), particulate (POC)], suspended sediment
[Total Suspended Sediment (TSS), Inorganic Suspended Sediment (ISS),
Organic Suspended Sediment (OSS)], and suspended sediment color. Tide
level or water level (see note below in Supplemental Information),
water temperature, secchi depth were noted in the field at the time of
the water collection; salinity was measured when the sample was
brought into the laboratory for processing. From 1977 to 1986, ATP
analyzes were also run on the samples but are not part of this
database. From 1985 to 1988 water chemistry analysis (listed above)
were run on water samples from Debidue Creek, but are not included as
part of this database. Using the Munsell Soil Chart, sediment color
was determined for each suspended sediment filter starting in June
1988; this database is an ancillary database and is available for use.
