Results and evaluation of a pilot primary monitoring network, San Francisco Bay, California, 1978; 1980; WRI; 80-73; Bradford, W. L.; Iwatsubo, R. T.

Summary

A primary monitoring network of 12 stations, with measurements at 1-meter depth intervals every 2 weeks during periods of high inflow from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River delta, and every 4-6 weeks during seasonal low delta inflows, appears adequate to observe major changes in ambient water quality in San Francisco Bay. A 1-year study tested the network operation and determined that analysis of the data could demonstrate the major changes in salinity, temperature, and light-attenuation distributions known to occur, based on earlier research, in response to variations of delta inflow and to other physical processes. Observations of eddies at two stations, of the influence of water from a river flooding in the extreme south bay, and [...]
