Citizen Science & Research Links
The NDP is used for many different research projects. Real time salinity monitoring stations along Rincon bayou characterize freshwater inflows into the Nueces Delta. Freshwater pumping events can be traced along the Rincon bayou by looking at the data over time. Water temp, conductivity, and salinity are reported every 30 minutes.
The weather station provides air temp, wind, precipitation, barometric pressure, relative humidity & solar radiation data.
The CBBEP staff and students are also actively involved in citizen science activities. We collect bird data for Cornell University and are working to put together a data set for water quality taken on field trips.
