Mississippi River Baton Rouge water quality

Robert Eugene Turner
We investigated how physical and chemical factors affect Chlorophyll a concentrations in the Mississippi River, the largest river in North America, by sampling 878 times from February 1997 to December 2018 near its terminus at Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Measured values included temperature, light (secchi disk), suspended sediments, and nutrients (nitrate+nitrite, phosphate, TP, TN, ammonium, silicate) that may affect phytoplankton communities. The data are available for unrestricted use.
