Description Previous to this study, there had been a lack of data on dissolved oxygen in Oakland Bay, particularly in the upper region of the bay. This study was undertaken in September 2003 to measure dissolved oxygen at various locations in the bay. The vertical profiles were measured using a Seabird CTD instrument, while instantaneous measurements were made with a Hydrolab multi-probe meter and with Winkler titration.

Data in general showed compliance with Washington State’s water quality standard for dissolved oxygen. There was one instance of an inconclusive exceedance of the standard. The Winkler data showed better correlation with CTD data than with Hydrolab data.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
