Title: Oyster Bed Water Nitrogen 2011
Short Name: Oyster Bed Water Nitrogen 2011
Status: Planned
Abstract:

These data consist of nitrogen (nitrate-N, nitrite-N, and ammonium-N) concentrations (in microgram/liter) in three rivers and associated estuaries collected in 2011 and 2012 as part of project to examine the sources of nutrients and energy supporting commercial oyster beds. Oyster beds were located in the estuary near by the associated river mouth. These rivers including the Dosewallips, Hamma Hamma, and Samish. Details on study sites and objectives can be found in Conway-Cranos, L., P. Kiffney, N. Banas, J. Burke, M. Plummer, S. Naman*, R. Paranjpye , M. Strom, P. MacCready, J. Bucci, and M. Ruckelshaus. 2015. Estuarine organic matter sources subsidize shellfish beds in Puget Sound, WA, USA. Marine Ecology Progress Series 533: 15-28.

Data Attributes

Attribute Summary

Rubric Score Primary Key? Name Type Description
100
Watershed VARCHAR2 The watershed were samples were collected. "Admiralty" refers to samples collected off-shore out of the zone of influence of each watershed and assumed to represent purely a marine source.
100
Site VARCHAR2 Habitat types where samples were collected including within oyster bed (oyster bed), river (from within the freshwater zone of each river), offshore (marine sample collected away from influence of each river estuaries).
100
Location VARCHAR2 Additional detail on location of where samples where collected (e.g. Hwy 101 bridge indicates sample was collected close to bridge).
100
Date Collected DATE Date when each sample was collected.
100
NO3- (ug/L) NUMBER Concentration of dissolved nitrate-N in each sample. Units for values are micrograms per liter.
100
NO2- (ug/L) NUMBER Concentration of dissolved nitrite-N in each sample. Units for values are micrograms per liter.
100
NH4 (ug/L) NUMBER Concentration of dissolved ammonium-N in each sample. Units for values are micrograms per liter.
