Hi all,

For the first time since Hurricane Florence, the estuary has some salt upstream of the bend at Cherry Point (station 120). The lower estuary is moderately stratified but the water is still cool and dissolved oxygen is > 8 mg/L throughout the estuary. There was a front between stations 60 and 70 with strong downstream gradients of temperature, pH, Chlorophyll fluorescence, and a spike in turbidity at station 70.
