Brief description

From December to March, in most years between 1982/83 to 2011/12, the Marine and Freshwater Research Laboratory (MAFRL) at Murdoch University conducted water quality testing in Cockburn Sound, Western Australia for the Cockburn Sound Management Council (CSMC). Data was obtained on nitrogen and phosphorus compounds, salinity, conductivity, pH, suspended sediments, density, turbidity, fluorescence, temperature, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll and light attenuation.

Lineage

The Marine and Freshwater Research Laboratory (MAFRL) conducts the water sampling using the Manual for Standard Operating Procedures (see data for download section).

The following water quality parameters were measured in 1982-2008:

- Ortho-phosphorus (ug/L)
- Organic phosphorus (ug/L)
- Total phosphorus (ug / L)
- Ammonia (ug/L)
- Nitrate-nitrite (ug/L)
- Organic nitrogen (ug/L)
- Total nitrogen (ug/L)
- Chlorophyll a (ug/L)
- Salinity (Bottom and Surface) (%)
- Temperature (Bottom and Surface) (Degrees Celsius)
- Dissolved Oxygen (Surface and Bottom) (mg/L)
- Attenuation Coefficient
- pH
- Secchi depth (metres)

(NOTE: not all parameters were measured all years)

Additional parameters were measured in subsequent years:
- Dissolved Oxygen (Surface and Bottom) (also measured in %sat)
- Total suspended sediments (mg/L)
- Chlorophyll b and c (ug/L)
- Electrical conductivity (Bottom and Surface) (mS/cm)
- Density (Bottom and Surface)
- Turbidity (Bottom and Surface) (NTU)
- Fluorescence (Bottom and Surface) (ug/L)
