Oceanographic water parameter data collected from moored Realtime Coastal Observation Network, ReCON, Muskegon Pier Buoy, Lake Michigan, in the Great Lakes region by NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory from 2018-08-08 to 2019-11-07 (NCEI Accession 0210802)

NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory collected the data from moored Realtime Coastal Observation Network, ReCON, Muskegon Pier Buoy, Lake Michigan, an in-situ moored station, in the Great Lakes during the open water season of 2018 and 2019. During this time period, an acoustic doppler current profiler (ADCP) collected observations of current, depth, water temperature, and flow rate of the Muskegon River channel where it enters Lake Michigan. The ReCON buoy provides continuous, real-time observations facilitates modification of sampling parameters in anticipation of episodic events, facilitates collection of field samples in response to episodic events, supports long term research, and contributes to sensor and system development. Parameters collected include currents and water temperature.

Purpose The goal of the ReCON project is to develop a national network of coastal buoys capable of seabed to sea-surface observations. This wireless Internet observation system, with shore stations at coastal locations covering approximately 800 square miles of sea surface, uses commercially available networking equipment allowing straightforward integration into a nationwide network. Each system collects meteorological data and provides sub-surface measurements of chemical, biological, and physical parameters. The system is designed to allow controlled access to multi-institutional users through surface buoys and sub-surface sensor guest ports located on an underwater hub. The observation network currently provides environmental data to state, federal, and university researchers, educators and resource managers.
