Get to know your estuary!

As part of the National Estuarine Research Reserve’s System-Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP), staff at the North Inlet-Winyah Bay NERR conduct regular water quality and meteorological monitoring at sites throughout the estuary. We now have data compiled for the past 10 years, up to 2018, so that water quality parameters like temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen, among others, can be compared to previous years.

These data are also transmitted in real time to the NERRS Centralized Data Management Office, where you can create data visualizations online or download data for your own analysis!

We plan to update these SWMP Status Reports each year when new data becomes available, so stay tuned.
