Abstract: Nutrient monitoring is conducted at 26 National Estuarine Research Reserves (NERR) from four locations within or adjacent to the reserve on a monthly basis of the following parameters: orthophosphate, ammonium, nitrite, nitrate, and chlorophyll a. Note: Reserves may collect additional parameters which are available by searching the Yearly Files directory.

Purpose: Research objectives Nutrient monitoring in GBNERR has been conducted to since the late 1980???s with basic goal of developing and maintaining temporally intensive long-term datasets of physio-chemical parameters of water quality at locations that are representative of the Great Bay Estuarine System. The Great Bay site is relatively unimpacted, while the three tidal river sites (Lamprey, Oyster and ... View entire text

Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: Limits of Detection The following Method Detection Limits (MDL), the lowest concentration of a parameter that an analytical procedure can reliably detect, have been established for the UNH laboratory that performed analyses in 2004 (Table 1). Concentrations below the MDL are reported as -9999 in the database. Samples that fall above the maximum range of the chemistry are ... View entire text
