Project Overview:

  • To create a digital archive of historic water quality data sets from coastal Georgia with particular attention placed on data in the NOAA Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve.
  • To establish a protocol appropriate for archiving the data in cooperation with NOAA National Oceanographic Data Center.
  • To create CD-roms and an on-line database containing data associated with coastal Georgia.
