Key West Port Water Quality Changes

August 17, 2021

The Gulf of Mexico Integrated Ecosystem Assessment team presented water quality data to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council. Data presented included dissolved inorganic nitrogen, chlorophyll-a, silica, turbidity, and several others. This information was presented to the council to better understand how cruise ships impact water quality. This long term water quality monitoring dataset presented offers an opportunity to look at changes over time, including any that may come from changing use patterns in the area.
