Figure S1. This figure, generated by the AGP, is an animation of log transformed TC concentrations measured during the second Dunes study (4/18 16:00 - 4/21 1:00, 2003), shown with mean sea level. Sampling time interval is designated by a blue rectangle at the top of the animation. This animation shows that as salinity decreases, TC concentrations increase during ebb tides, which is consistent with the idea of a freshwater runoff source for these organisms.

Figure S2. This figure, generated by the AGP, is an animation of log transformed EC concentrations measured during the second Dunes study (4/18 16:00 - 4/21 1:00, 2003), shown with mean sea level. Sampling time interval is designated by a blue rectangle at the top of the animation. This animation shows that as salinity decreases, EC concentrations increase during ebb tides, which is consistent with the idea of a freshwater runoff source for these organisms.

Figure S3. This figure, generated by the AGP, is an animation of log transformed ENT concentrations measured during the second Dunes study (4/18 16:00 - 4/21 1:00, 2003), shown with mean sea level. Sampling time interval is designated by a blue rectangle at the top of the animation. This animation shows that as salinity decreases, ENT concentrations increase during ebb tides, which is consistent with the idea of a freshwater runoff source for these organisms.

Figure S4. This figure, generated by the AGP/LGP program suite, depicts log transformed TC concentrations measured during the second Dunes study (4/18 16:00 - 4/21 1:00, 2003), shown with mean sea level. Sampling time interval is designated by a blue rectangle at the top of each panel. This figure shows that as salinity decreases, TC concentrations increase during ebb tides, which is consistent with the idea of a freshwater runoff source for these organisms.

Figure S5. This figure, generated by the AGP/LGP program suite, depicts log transformed EC concentrations measured during the second Dunes study (4/18 16:00 - 4/21 1:00, 2003), shown with mean sea level. Sampling time interval is designated by a blue rectangle at the top of each panel. This figure shows that as salinity decreases, EC concentrations increase during ebb tides, which is consistent with the idea of a freshwater runoff source for these organisms.

Figure S6. This figure, generated by the AGP/LGP program suite, depicts log transformed ENT concentrations measured during the second Dunes study (4/18 16:00 - 4/21 1:00, 2003), shown with mean sea level. Sampling time interval is designated by a blue rectangle at the top of each panel. This figure shows that as salinity decreases, ENT concentrations increase during ebb tides, which is consistent with the idea of a freshwater runoff source for these organisms.


Figure S7. This figure, generated by the AGP/LGP program suite, depicts salinity concentrations measured during the second Dunes study (4/18 16:00 - 4/21 1:00, 2003), shown with mean sea level. Sampling time interval is designated by a blue rectangle at the top of each panel. This figure shows that salinity concentration is correlated with tide level—flood tides tend to have higher salinities than ebb tides—which suggests that the variance in fecal indicator bacteria concentrations (shown in Figures S4, S5, and S6) with salinity is coincident with a freshwater runoff source for these organisms.
