Time Series Electromagnetic Induction-Log Datasets, Including Logs Collected through the 2017 Water Year in South Florida

Time series electromagnetic induction-log (TSEMIL) datasets are collected from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) cased or uncased monitoring wells to evaluate changes in water conductivity over time. TSEMIL datasets consist of a series of individual electromagnetic induction logs collected at a frequency of months or years that have been compiled into a dataset by eliminating small uniform offsets

Analysis of diel dissolved oxygen curves at Caño Boquerón, Cabo Rojo and Puerto Mosquito, Isla de Vieques, Puerto Rico

The dataset contains the selected physical properties and chemical constituents that were measured at Caño Boquerón, Cabo Rojo, and Puerto Mosquito, Isla de Vieques, Puerto Rico during a diurnal cycle. Two diel studies were conducted per lagoon to determine the community primary productivity. Photosynthesis creates oxygen which enhances microbiological activity and results in...

Determination of water transparency depth in Caño Boquerón, Cabo Rojo and Puerto Mosquito, Isla de Vieques; Puerto Rico, July 2015 - July 2016

A secchi disk is used to estimate the water transparency depth of surface-water bodies. Secchi disk depth was measured monthly at Caño Boquerón, Cabo Rojo, and Puerto Mosquito, Isla de Vieques; Puerto Rico for the period from July 2015 to July 2016. This data release is part of a limnological analysis at Caño Boquerón and Puerto Mosquito to assess the principal factors
