Vertical water temperature observational data for one location in the southern basin of Lake Michigan from August 2018 through September 2019. Vertical temperatures were collected hourly at 18 depths; maximum depth of this mooring location was 155 m. The temperature measurements were collected continuously during this time period with an accuracy of ±0.002 °C.

Supplemental Information
Submission Package ID: LRFXH8

In this accession, NCEI has archived multiple versions of these data. The latest (and best) version of these data has the largest version number.
Purpose These temperature data were collected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (NOAA-GLERL). Temperature measurements collected at high resolution in both time and vertical space are critical to 1) assess inter-annual variability of the thermal structure of the Great Lakes; 2) test three-dimensional model parameterization; 3) understand vertical mixing processes; and 4) to aid in interpreting biological and other environmental data.
