Description:

We looked at the correlation between dissolved oxygen and two water quality variables: dissolved nitrogen and dissolved phosphorus. We thought that, if dissolved oxygen were highly correlated with dissolved nitrogen (for example), then that would imply that dissolved nitrogen was limiting or otherwise important at that site. Likewise for dissolved phosphorus. We found that different sites in the bay had different levels of correlation, but there was no spatial pattern to the data.
