Continuous Monitoring Station Information

Below is a table of all of our Continuous Monitoring stations ever sampled, with coordinates, the range of dates each site has been sampled, and information on where the sampling meter (sonde) is located in the water column. Current year stations are highlighted in green text color.

*DOWNLOAD NOTE: The Station ID hyperlinks will directly download a .csv of our Eyes on the Bay data stored on the Chesapeake Bay Program's DataHub, for the available date range for each station. These data are the biweekly 'Calibration Data' measured on-site at each Continuous Monitoring station. The 15min increment continuous measurements can be found at the link below.
