Field Activity 2021-354-FA

Identifier 2021-354-FA
Alternate names CO2 System Measurements in Hillsborough River, Florida
Purpose This dataset was obtained to assist researchers with determining whether HgCl2-poisoned water samples from organic-rich estuarine waters accurately reflected the in-situ CO2 system characteristics of the samples observed and recorded at the time of collection.
Location Lowry Park Riverside Trail on the Hillsborough River in Tampa, Florida
Summary Collected 70 water samples to be analyzed in the laboratory over specific time intervals.
Info derived water temperature (Celsius, C), salinity, pHT (pH on the total scale), total alkalinity (AT, micromoles/kg), and total dissolved inorganic carbon (CT, micromoles/kg).
Comments Hillsborough River water samples were collected from the boardwalk of Lowry Park riverside trail.
