Project Types

Projects typically range from 1 to 3 years in duration and fall into one of three categories:

Technical Assistance Projects

One-year efforts for purposes of installation of instrumentation, training and quality assurance, scoping or limited synoptic water quality studies, or providing technical representation to the NPS requiring water quality expertise.

Ocean chemistry affecting ESA-listed corals in Dry Tortugas National Park

Synoptic Projects

Two-year investigations of water quality to provide a timely assessment of aquatic conditions at selected locations and to evaluate the spatial relationships or contributions to those conditions, and/or to provide baseline data and information where little exists. The studies document status in water quality and may determine if management actions are achieving water quality objectives.
