INSTRUMENTATION1.--Water-quality monitor provides 6-minute-interval readings collected from 1.6 ft above bottom. December 2007 to April 2008, water-quality monitor readings collected from 0.5 ft above bottom. Salinity record computed from specific-conductance readings.
REMARKS1.--Satellite telemeter for water temperature, specific conductance, dissolved oxygen, pH, turbidity, and sampling depth parameters at station. Station discontinued from April 2011 to October 2013.  Station moved to new walking bridge from April 2018 to January 2019. Station discontinued from May 2019 to August 2022.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD1.--WATER TEMPERATURE: Maximum, 33.6 °C, July 7, 2010; minimum, -1.8 °C, Feb. 10, 11, 2008, Dec. 28, Jan. 23, Feb. 9, 2011, Jan. 23, Feb. 18, 2013, Jan. 1, 2018. SALINITY: Maximum, 39.4 psu, Jan. 08, 2018; minimum, 13.5 psu, Nov. 8, 2023. DISSOLVED OXYGEN: Maximum, 19.3 mg/L, Jan. 9, 2014; minimum, 0.8 mg/L, Aug. 13, 15, 2016. pH: Maximum, 8.7 standard units, Jan. 18, 2023; minimum, 6.7 standard units, Aug. 12-13, 2012. TURBIDITY: Maximum, 780 FNU, Jan. 23, 2016; minimum, <0.1 FNU several days each year 2008-18. CHLOROPHYLL: Maximum, 164 ug/L, 40.7 RFU, May, 12, 2023; minimum, 1.1 ug/L, Feb. 15, 2023, 0.31 RFU, Feb. 13, 2023. PHYCOERYTHRIN: Maximum, 486 ug/L, 172 RFU, May 12, 2023; minimum, 4.0 ug/L, May 11, 2023, 0.79 RFU, Feb. 28, 2023.

NAVD 1988 Datum Conversion Information


Elevation observations and tidal predictions for this station are reported to NGVD 1929. To convert data to NAVD 1988 subtract 1.08 ft. To convert data to MHHW datum subtract 4.56 ft. These corrections vary from site to site.

NGVD 1929 is the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929, formerly called "mean sea level" or "Sea Level Datum of 1929." NGVD 1929 was a general adjustment of the first-order level nets fit to mean sea level at 26 tide gages in the US and Canada.
NAVD 1988 is the North American Vertical Datum of 1988, which is a geodetic datum derived from a general adjustment of the first-order level nets fit to 1 tide gage in eastern Canada.
MHHW is mean higher high water, which is a site-specific datum determined by averaging the highest of the 2 high tides that occur each day over a 19-year tidal epoch. For tide gages with less than 19 years of record, this datum is estimated by correlation with long-term tide gages.
