SERC Dock Monitoring Data

1970 - 1978

In April 1970, Robert Cory from the U.S. Geological Survey began a program of continuously monitoring water quality in the Rhode River.  His monitors recorded water temperature, salinity, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, pH, and tide stage.  The daily maximums and minimums for each of these variables are available for download.

1980 - 1990

Starting in 1980, the USGS monitor recorded hourly observations of conductivity (micromhos), dissolved oxygen (mg/liter), pH, and temperature (degrees C).  The hourly data along with daily maximums, minimums, and averages for each variable are available.
