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 degrees 19'25"N, 72 degrees 01'07"W), a small (2 km N-S × 0.5 km E-W), shallow (1-5m), cone-shaped embayment opening to 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.

Trukhchev, Dimitur Ivanov; Demin, Yurii Leonidovich (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1992-09)The Black Sea is a nearly enclosed ocean basin, exhibiting many features common with larger ocean basins. Lacking an open boundary and having a limited exchange with sources of fresh and salt water, this basin is an ideal ...
