abstract

This dataset contains weather and water monitoring data collected at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) dock on the Rhode River in Edgewater, MD from 1984 - 1990. The water temperature, sunlight, and wind speed measurements were recorded hourly by a Campbell CR21 logger. Most of the original ascii text files were compiled into this one Excel workbook.
