Oceanographic and Water Quality Measurements in two Southern California Coastal Wetlands, 2013-2014

Description: This web page provides access to oceanographic and water quality observations made at four locations in two Southern California Coastal Wetlands. The objective was to compare an urbanized wetland with limited sediment supply (Seal Beach) with a less modified marsh (Pt. Mugu) with fluvial sediment supply. Marine temperature, conductivity, pressure sensors, optical turbidity sensors and acoustic velocity meters were deployed on bottom platforms to quantify the conditions in the water column.

Duration: Pt. Mugu: Apr. 2013 – Nov. 2013; Seal Beach: Nov. 2013 - May 2014
