GBR - Basic water quality of Cockle Bay, Magnetic Island 2008-2011 (MTSRF 4.8.4s, JCU)

This is data associated with MTSRF Task 4.8.4s, a MTSRF supported PhD project titled /Biology and ecology of the blacktip reef shark/. As part of this project, basic water quality data were collected during shark tagging trips at the study site - Cockle Bay Reef at Magnetic Island. The meta data regarding these shark catch and tagging trips are recorded in a separate data file. Basic water quality of Cockle Bay was measured at weekly to monthly intervals with handheld instruments - a YSI water quality meter (temp, salinity, condutivity, dissolved oxygen), and secchi disk depth. Data units: * Temperature - Degrees celcuis * Salinity - ppt * Conductivity - ms * Dissolved oxygen - mg/l and % saturation * Secchi depth - cm
