Description

This dataset provides in situ measurements of water temperature (degrees C), salinity (PSU), turbidity (FNU), and chlorophyll-a fluorescence (RFU) in surface of the Atchafalaya River and Terrebonne Basins during the Spring (2021-03-25 to 2021-04-22) and Fall (2021-08-14 to 2021-09-24) field efforts by the Delta-X project. Field sampling was paused on August 25 and resumed on September 13, 2021, due to the landfall of Hurricane Ida on 2021-08-26 approximately 70 km east of the study site. Water quality changes caused by the hurricane were expected to be minimal. Measurements were collected in multiple channels of varying width (from a few meters to >100 m), near Delta-X intensive study sites, in open bays and lakes, and at a few locations in the nearshore Gulf of Mexico using either a YSI ProDSS water quality probe or a YSI EXO3 water quality probe.
