Despite their importance for research and environmental protection, there’s still a shortage of high quality and high-resolution temperature, pH, and oxygen data particularly in shallow coastal habitats. We monitor five important environmental parameters (i.e., depth, temperature, salinity, pH, and dissolved oxygen) at 30 minute intervals in Mumford Cove, CT (41°19’25”N 72°01’07”W), a small (2 km N-S × 0.5 km E-W), shallow (1-5m), cone-shaped embayment opening to the northeastern Long Island Sound, with protected marsh habitat along its western side, marsh and beach habitat along its eastern side, and an extensive seagrass (Zostera marina) cover. Continuous monitoring is achieved by swapping identical and recalibrated probes (Eureka Manta Sub2) every 3-5 weeks. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the supplemental document 'Field_names.pdf', and a full dataset description is included in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.

Temperature and salinity effects on strontium incorporation in otoliths of larval spot (Leiostomus xanthurus) Martin, Gretchen Bath; Thorrold, Simon R.; Jones, Cynthia M. (National Research Council Canada, 2004-02-03)Temperature dependence of strontium/calcium (Sr/Ca) ratios in foraminiferal calcite and coral aragonite is well established; however, factors controlling Sr/Ca ratios in fish otoliths remain obscure. To assess temperature ...
