SWMP Time Series Data Analysis Code

Data Resource
October 2018

The NERRS established the System-Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP) in 1995 to conduct long-term monitoring of water quality, weather, coastal habitat, and biological communities using consistent methods. The monitoring program is critical for reserve monitoring of water quality, weather, coastal habitat, and biological communities, however, the program is limited by reserves' lack of time, technical expertise, and computational resources to analyze large, complex data sets. A 2015 Science Transfer project led by Jacques Cousteau Reserve addressed these constraints by producing tools, graphical support, and training for research staff from the Mid-Atlantic reserves to better utilize monitoring data. 

This R and MATLAB code developed by the project team may be used to analyze NERRS SWMP time series data and is accessible through the Centralized Data Management Office's website.
