The National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) System-Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP) connects you to long-term ecological monitoring data recorded from all of the 28 coastal and estuarine research reserves. Includes continuous monitoring of water quality parameters, weather, and bi-monthly analyses of nutrients, chlorophyll, etc. There is also data about biodiversity monitoring and land-use and habitat change analysis.
You can view and make data visualizations in real time, or download the data and plot it in your own favorite tool.
There are 2 systems: Data Export System (very useful) and Advanced Query System. Also, there are 3 applications depending on what kind of data you are interested in looking at: Real Time Application, GIS Application, and Vegetation Monitoring Application.
