A secchi disk is used to estimate the water transparency depth of surface-water bodies. Secchi disk depth was measured monthly at Caño Boquerón, Cabo Rojo, and Puerto Mosquito, Isla de Vieques; Puerto Rico for the period from July 2015 to July 2016. This data release is part of a limnological analysis at Caño Boquerón and Puerto Mosquito to assess the principal factors affecting the hydrology and water-quality conditions. In addition, the study provides baseline information to regulatory agencies responsible for the management and conservation of coastal waters in Puerto Rico. The investigation focused on Caño Boquerón, and Puerto Mosquito surface-water bodies, representing disturbed and undisturbed conditions,...

This dataset consists of a shapefile of points corresponding to water depth collected for the bathymetric survey of Puerto Mosquito, in Isla de Vieques, Puerto Rico, on August 11, 2015. The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Puerto Rico Environmental Quality Board, conducted a limnological study at Puerto Mosquito in Vieques to assess the principal mechanisms affecting the hydrology and water quality characteristics. The study characterized hydrologic and physical-chemical properties, sediment deposition rates, bathymetry, and biological conditions. The bathymetric survey system used for the study consisted of coupling a global positioning system (GPS) device with a water depth sounder. Established...

This dataset contains measurements of dissolved oxygen concentrations collected at Caño Boquerón in Cabo Rojo, and Puerto Mosquito, Isla de Vieques, Puerto Rico. The method consists of in-situ incubation of two light-and-dark bottles for approximately four hours. Dissolved oxygen concentrations were determined using the Winkler method. A total of twelve monthly in-situ incubations were conducted from July 2015 to July 2016. For each bottle incubated, two or three titrations were conducted and an average of the DO calculations is presented.

This dataset contains the selected physical properties and chemical constituents that were measured at Puerto Mosquito, Isla de Vieques on June 22, 2017. A cross-sectional profile was conducted by measuring a total of ten selected site throughout the lagoon during the morning. Field water-quality measurements included the parameters of specific conductance, and dissolved oxygen.

The dataset contains the selected physical properties and chemical constituents that were measured at Caño Boquerón, Cabo Rojo, and Puerto Mosquito, Isla de Vieques, Puerto Rico during a diurnal cycle. Two diel studies were conducted per lagoon to determine the community primary productivity. Photosynthesis creates oxygen which enhances microbiological activity and results in the production of organic matter. Primary productivity is important for supporting the food web in aquatic ecosystems. The field data collection included the measurement of temperature, dissolved oxygen, and percent of oxygen saturation. Measurements were obtained at about 1 hour intervals. Diel studies were conducted on October 29, 2015 and...

The dataset includes daily rainfall collected at Puerto Mosquito, Isla de Vieques and Caño Boquerón, Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico from July 1, 2015 to July 28, 2016. Two rain gages were installed at: 1) USGS stations: 50129935 - Caño Boquerón No. 3, and 2) 50231500 - Laguna Bahía Puerto Mosquito No. 1. Site inspections of both rain gages occurred at 6-weeks intervals. Further details regarding the calibration, equipment, and data processing are available in the USGS National Information System (NWIS).

The dataset includes estimates of salinity using specific conductance measurements at 1) Caño Boquerón, Cabo Rojo, and 2) Puerto Mosquito, Isla de Vieques; Puerto Rico for the period from July 2015 to July 2016. This dataset is part of a limnological analysis at Caño Boquerón and Puerto Mosquito to assess the principal factors affecting the hydrology and water-quality conditions. In addition, the study provides baseline information to regulatory agencies responsible for the management and conservation of coastal waters in Puerto Rico. The investigation focused on Caño Boquerón (disturbed conditions); and Puerto Mosquito (undisturbed conditions). Monthly measurements of specific conductance were collected at both...
