This data release contains turbidity data from two sensors located at two of the four marsh sites at Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (Site 1 and 2, see Supplemental Information section for description of sites). Turbidity measures the scattering effect that suspended solids have on light: the higher the intensity of scattered light, the higher the turbidity. Data were collected using an ECO-NTU (Nephelometric Turbidity Units) Scattering Sensor (version NTU 4.06) placed on the marsh surface within 0-5 m of the marsh-estuarine shoreline. The intent was to measure water turbidity for tidal flood waters.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
