  • Water-column nutrient and particulate transects along the Parker River Estuary.
  • Hopkinson, Charles; Plum Island Ecosystems LTER Program
  • 2000
  • Water chemistry including nutrient concentrations for various forms of N, P, C, as well as suspended sediments and light extinction coefficients, was determined from bi-annual nutrient transects along the Plum Island Sound estuary from the Parker River Dam to the mouth of the sound. Grab samples were taken at 11 sites along a 24 km transect from the dam to the mouth of the estuary. These samples have generally been collected in Spring and Fall and are done in conjunction with metabolism transects measuring dissolved oxygen levels. The Spring and Fall transects correspond to the high-flow, pre-growth season in April and the low-flow, post-growth season in September.
