Oceanographic and Water Quality Measurements in Chincoteague Bay, Maryland/Virginia, 2014 - 2015

Description: This web page provides access to oceanographic, meteorological, and water quality observations made at fourteen locations in Chincoteague Bay as part of the Estuarine Physical Response to Storms (EPR) program. The primary objective was to measure the physical response of the system to storm events, and identify processes that may affect estuarine resilience. Bottom landing platforms with instrumentation to measure currents, waves, water level, optical turbidity, water temperature, conductivity and water quality parameters were deployed at most sites. Downward looking altimeters measured changes in elevation of the seabed. A meteorological station measured atmospheric conditions over the study period.The deployments were in 3 or 4 sequential segments, depending on the site
