Is it possible to get the raw Secchi Disk Depths for Chincoteague Bay?

Hi Kaja,

DNR's Eyes on the Bay website has secchi data (water clarity) for a few sites in Chincoteague Bay

www.eyesonthebay.net

Hope that helps.

Regards,
Adrian

I just wanted to post an update.  Raw secchi depth data for Chincoteague Bay is published in a report titled "A Water Quality Assessment of the Maryland Coastal Bays including Nitrogen Source Identification using Stable Isotopes."  The complete citation is below.  I hope this helps other people find what they're looking for.

Thanks for pointing that out Kaja,

Here is a better link for that report - allows users to get the details and view via our "look inside" function without having to open the PDF directly:
