Description

Abstract Text:
This project will support the mission of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station by generating new data and knowledge linking meteorological forcing factors and water quality changes in the Mullica River-Great Bay Estuary, the most pristine estuarine system in New Jersey. Water quality in this estuary has historically been excellent, and therefore it can serve as an ideal reference for assessing human impacts on other shallow coastal bays in New Jersey and elsewhere. Changes in the frequency and intensity of storms and droughts influence hydrologic and water quality conditions in the estuary that can significantly affect biotic communities and habitats. The data generated in this project will be useful to resource managers tasked with making critical decisions involving the condition of New Jersey's coastal waterbodies, habitats, and commercial and recreational fisheries.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
