Description

This data archive contains data sets from the Chesapeake Bay Program's long-term tidal water-quality monitoring network. The data sets are organized in three folders: (1) raw data sets for the period of 1990-2017, which were directly downloaded from the Chesapeake Bay Program Water Quality Database (https://datahub.chesapeakebay.net/); (2) processed data for the period of 1990-2017, which were obtained based on manipulations described in the associated journal article (Zhang et al., 2020); and, (3) aggregated data sets for various periods, which were prepared for analysis related to Goal 1 and Goal 2 in the associated journal article (Zhang et al., 2020).
