The abiotic environment governs where and which species can occupy a given habitat. A number of methods exist for monitoring physical parameters such as temperature, salinity, and turbidity, including: continuously-monitoring sondes and loggers, instantaneous probes, and point measurements using physical equipment (eg, thermometers, refractometers, Secchi disks).
MarineGEO seeks to provide the tools to collect and inherit a variety of monitoring data. Here, you will find materials for reporting point measurements.
If you have continuous data, such as that from sondes or loggers, please contact us for further instructions.
- Temperature (degrees Celsius)
- Salinity (psu)
- Turbidity (Secchi depth in m)
