attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Water monitoring data collected in situ in Morro Bay at a single location in the back bay from January 2007 to the present. The data include temperature, conductivity, pressure, and salinity measurements from a Sea-Bird SBE 37-SIP CTD. An Aanderaa 3835 ICD oxygen optode measured dissolved oxygen and oxygen saturation. Chlorophyll fluorescence and turbidity were measured by the WET Labs ECO-FLNTU sensor. Nitrate measurements were collected by a Satlantic ISUS-X. The data were collected by the Center for Coastal Marine Sciences at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
