Datasets for Refining Techniques for High-Frequency Monitoring of Chlorophyll

Datasets for Refining Techniques for High-Frequency Monitoring of Chlorophyll

About this project

The 2020-2021 catalyst project Refining Techniques for High-Frequency Monitoring of Chlorophyll in the NERRS brought together twelve biogeochemically diverse reserves to compare results from new YSI in situ sensor technology with existing practices for measuring chlorophyll.

The project developed standardized protocols for calibration and data management using the two chlorophyll monitoring methods as well as recommendations for determining when each method is appropriate.

About this data

The dataset description outlines the parameters measured, locations studied, and the data file format for the six datasets generated by the project:

  1. Combined field- and lab-based comparison data collected by participating reserves
  2. Monitoring data using different methods from three reserves
  3. Interference test results from seven reserves
  4. Metadata for sampling details at participating reserves, e.g., site location, protocols
  5. Chlorophyll comparison data files from individual reserves
  6. Raw files from participating reserves
