Volunteer “Citizen Scientists” are a critical component of the water quality monitoring program. of Cape Cod Bay. At least 12 sites, from Provincetown to Plymouth, are sampled each week (June – October) during mid-ebb tide by volunteers. These sites are located further inshore in areas not accessible by boat. Data on water quality parameters (temperature, salinity, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, pH, and nutrients) are collected.

Interested in becoming a citizen scientist? Please contact Amy Costa.
