Booth, A.C., and Knight, T.M., 2020, Water-quality profiles within the Caloosahatchee River and twelve fiberglass tanks, during experimental nutrient addition treatments, 2019: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release provides water-quality data collected from the Caloosahatchee River and 12 fiberglass tanks located within the Caloosahatchee River. The tanks were open to the atmosphere, and were closed to the river. Tanks were filled with native water within 1-2 hours prior to the first profile collected on May 6, July 8, and September 16. Nutrients were added at approximately 12:00 p.m. on May 6, 11:45 a.m. on July 8, and 11:00 a.m. on September 16. Sodium nitrate was added for the nitrate treatments, sodium phosphate was added for the phosphate treatments, and ammonium hydroxide was added for the ammonium treatments. Nutrient samples were collected and processed by Nova Southeastern University. Water-quality [...]

The data were collected by the USGS Caribbean Florida Water Science Center in cooperation with the United States Army Corps of Engineers to document the response of phytoplankton and associated water-quality parameters with the addition of selected nutrients. The data release associated with this site consists of: data files in csv format (Excel spreadsheet format also available) containing data for temperature, specific conductance, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, pH, chlorophyll fluorescence, phycocyanin fluorescence, and fluorescence of dissolved organic matter measured in the Caloosahatchee River and each observation tank.
