browse graphicPreview graphic
This NCEI Accession includes estuarine water physical (salinity, temperature, water depth) and chemical parameters (total dissolved inorganic carbon, total alkalinity, pH on total scale observed at 25˚C, dissolved oxygen concentration, ammonia, soluble reactive phosphate and silicate) in the semiarid Corpus Christi Bay, the northwestern Gulf of Mexico. The sample collections were done in June-August 2015 and June-September 2016. This dataset is described in the submitted article "Characteristics of the Carbonate System in a Semi-Arid Estuary that Experiences Summertime Hypoxia" by Melissa R. McCutcheon, Cory J. Staryk, Xinping Hu (DOI: 10.1007/s12237-019-00588-0) in the Journal Estuaries and Coasts.
