BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DATA FILE:

15 minute readings of water column depth in the lower Parker River Estuary at Rt. 1A. Water depths are relative to the sonde pressure transducer and not associated with a datum.

KEYWORDS: tide, water, depth, Parker, monitoring

SITE TYPE: Monitoring

RESEARCH LOCATION: MON-PR-Rt1A YSI

Parker River, Fernalds Marina off Rt. 1A, Newbury, Massachusetts

Latitude 42o 45 42.25

Longitude 70o 50 49.33"

EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN AND METHODS:

Measurements are made using a YSI 6600 water quality sonde and YSI 6200 Data Collection Platform (DCP) with data radio telemetered to the PIE LTER Rowley field station. YSI Sonde water level sensor consists of a vented level depth sensor (stainless steel strain gauge).
