Water Quality Maps

MRC volunteer water quality monitoring data recorded the conditions that led to the SuperBloom. View them in these animated map links.

Indian River Lagoon Average Salinity, 2010-2013

Watch as the salinity levels reach critical in the norther lagoon in 2011 just before the superbloom.

Indian River Lagoon Secchi Depth, 2010-2013

Watch as water clarity decreases abruptly and remains low through 2010-2011 during he superbloom, resulting in the catastrophic loss of sea grass.
