Tidal forcing of enterococci at marine recreational beaches at fortnightly and semidiurnal frequencies.

Abstract

Marine beach water quality is typically monitored in early morning once a week without respect to tidal condition. To assess the effect of tide on this public health warning system, we analyzed enterococci (ENT) data from 60 southern California marine beaches with differing geomorphology, orientation, and proximity to runoff sources. ENT concentrations… (More)
