Description

Measurements of dissolved gasses (nitrous oxide, methane, and carbon dioxide) over the salinity gradient in eight estuaries (Noosa, Maroochy, Mooloolah, Caboolture, Pine, Brisbane, Logan/Albert, Nerang). Gas measurements are complemented by continius measurements of water chemistry parameters (temperature, salinity, pH) and periodic measurements of water nutrient content (total P, PO43-, total N, NH4+, DON, NO3-, total organic C, total inorganic C) and weather conditions (air temperature, wind speed, barometric pressure).

Data Collection Start Date

3-2016

Data Collection End Date

Methodology

The methods used to measure the different water chemistry parameters are described within the attached files.

Coverage

Southeast Queensland including Noosa, Maroochy, Mooloolah, Caboolture, Pine, Brisbane, Logan/Albert, Nerang.
