Abstract

Multiple sensor systems, capable of measuring the constituent or subfields which comprise a sewage effluent field arising from discharge in coastal ocean waters, are shown to improve the credibility of the measurements as a whole when properly integrated. The base of proper integration of data is commonality of time and space data with accuracies on the order of that provided by the Global Positioning System (GPS). With accurate integrated data, connectivity between field measurement sites distal from the discharge origin, e.g., a diffuser site, and said origin may be established. 1 Introduction Evaluation of the performa
