Update on water quality chlorophyll measurements assigned incorrect units
March 30, 2023
It was previously reported that chlorophyll-a measurements in the Water quality data product (DP1.20288.001) were being reported in the wrong units starting in late 2021 or early 2022 for the ten river and lake sites (BARC, BLWA, CRAM, FLNT, LIRO, PRLA, PRPO, SUGG, TOMB, and TOOK). The underlying cause has been fixed, and all data collected after 16 March 2023 are reported in the correct units.
We are continuing to work on correcting and republishing the affected data, and will make another announcement by June 1st, 2023. For more detailed information on the problem please use the Contact Us form. Select DP1.20288.001 in the Data Product dropdown list and include the term “INC0063346” in the body of your request.
