Pagination or Media Count:
A 5-year estuarine monitoring program was established in Cumberland Sound to obtain seasonal, long-term, continuous monitoring of water levels and conductivity and temperature measurements. Midway through the program, an intensive hydrodynamic data collection effort was scheduled to obtain post channel modification data of current speeds and directions, salinity and suspended sediment concentrations, water levels, and wind speed and direction. These data are to be compared with data obtained prior to the channel modifications. All of the field data collected in Cumberland Sound during May 1990 are presented. The report also describes the field investigation methods used to collect the data, summarizes laboratory methods used to analyze samples, shows results of the data reduction efforts, and presents compiled data sets.
