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. For a complete list of measurements, refer to the full dataset description in the supplemental file 'Dataset_description.pdf'.
