estuarine phosphorus concentration data?
« on: June 11, 2012, 02:08:48 pm »
Hello,
I am looking for dissolved inorganic phosphorus and nitrogen concentrations for US estuaries (annual averages for the entire estuary).  Do you happen to have these data available as part of the National Estuarine Eutrophication Assessment?
Thanks,
Maria

I think what you are looking for is in the Excel spreadsheet that I just sent you.

Hope that helps,
Adrian

I don't believe so.  The spreadsheet has phosphorus and nitrogen LOADS coming into the estuaries (river inputs) and also phosphorus and nitrogen concentrations for the OPEN OCEAN adjacent to the estuaries.  I am looking for phosphorus and nitrogen CONCENTRATIONS in the ESTUARIES.  --Maria

Maria,

I understand that you have also been in contact with Suzanne Bricker about this - she will be your best bet in obtaining any other data you are looking for.
