|Salinity Content in the Pamlico River
These maps show profiles of salinity (parts per thousand) in North Carolina's Pamlico River. In August and early September, before the storm, the water was more saline than it would be in a normal summer. At the end of September and later in the fall the water was almost completely fresh. Grey areas indicate waters where no data were collected. (Images courtesy Pamlico River Rapid Response Team)
