Title:
Chlorophyll Data from the Old Outfall Site in the South Sector of Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii February 2001 to May 2004 (NODC Accession 0002805)
Abstract:
Kaneohe Bay received increasing amounts of sewage from the 1950s through 1977. Most sewage was diverted from the bay in 1977 and early 1978. Data were collected beginning in September 1976 and continued until June 1979. The time series was re-established in June 1982 and continued to December 2005, when it was terminated. The sampling was at 1 m depth in the south sector of Kaneohe Bay, Oahu near the old outfall that ceased in 1977. Previous NODC Accessions 0000396 (1976-1979) and 0000422 (1982-1/2001) contained monthly averages of chlorophyll a, based on weekly to bi-weekly samples. This data set has the weekly to bi-weekly chlorophyll a, pheo, water temperature, secchi depth, and sample site depth. Additional data were taken from June 2004 - December 2005 and these will be available in a separate data set.

Why was the data set created?

The purpose was to study the responses of the ecosystem to the sewage diversion from the inner bay to an offshore, deep water location and to continue monitoring the location to denote changes associated with natural environmental and anthropogenic forcing on the primary productivity.


How was the data set created?

  1. From what previous works were the data drawn?

  2. How were the data generated, processed, and modified?

    Date: Unknown (process 1 of 1)
    Field Collection- Water samples were taken using a modified bilge pump fitted with a garden hose. Primary production measurements on water samples taken before and after passing through the pump were found not to be significantly different. The water from the pump was screened through 102-um-mesh nylon gauze in order to remove the larger zooplankton. Samples were taken at depth of 1m. Laboratory Methods- Two liter samples for chlorophyll analysis were filtered ont GFC filters and analyzed following the procedures recommended by Jeffrey (1974) and Jeffrey and Humphrey (1975).
