Continuous Biogeochemical Monitoring

With funding from the Kent County Levy Court and the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control and in collaboration with the US Geological Survey, we are monitoring nutrient concentrations and other chemical and physical parameters at Bowers, Delaware, at the confluence of the Murderkill Estuary and Delaware Bay, and in Bridgeville, Delaware, on the Nanticoke River that drains to the Chesapeake Bay to determine how nutrient loads from Delaware affect downstream receiving waters.
