National Estuarine Research Reserve System: Centralized Data Management Office

January 31, 2014

“NOAA’s National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS) acknowledges the importance of both long-term environmental monitoring programs and data and information dissemination through the support of the NERRS System-wide Monitoring Program (SWMP). The goal of the SWMP is to “identify and track short-term variability and long-term changes in the integrity and biodiversity of representative estuarine ecosystems and coastal watersheds for the purpose of contributing to effective national, regional and site specific coastal zone management”.”

This website is home to real-time data for the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve’s monitoring stations. The three stations are located at the Oliver Bridge on the St. Louis River, the LSNERR’ sentinel site in Pokegama Bay, and at Barker’s Island on the St. Louis River.
