Kiawah Island, South Carolina Water Column Profiler Installation - July 31, 2003

As part of the ongoing geographical expansion of the Neuse Estuary Monitoring and Research Program (NEMReP), the Center for Applied Aquatic Ecology installed its patented NCSU-CAAE profiler on Kiawah Island, SC, in collaboration with the South Carolina Algal Ecology Lab.

The real-time data gathered by the NCSU-CAAE profiler is available on this website, at the Kiawah Island page, and our other sites are available on the Real-Time Remote Monitoring page.
