Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Biological, physical, and time series data collected from station nss_cwb_001_002 by University of Hawai'i at Mānoa and assembled by Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) in the North Pacific Ocean from 2019-08-06 to 2020-07-22 (NCEI Accession 0277763)

This dataset contains biological, physical, and time series data in netCDF formatted files, which follow the Climate and Forecast metadata convention (CF) and the Attribute Convention for Data Discovery (ACDD). University of Hawai'i at Mānoa collected the data from their in-situ moored station named nss_cwb_001_002: PacIOOS Nearshore Sensor Clean Water Branch 001: Waialae, Oahu, Hawaii, in the North Pacific Ocean. PacIOOS, which assembles data from University of Hawai'i at Mānoa and other sub-regional coastal and ocean observing systems of the U.S. Pacific Islands, submitted the data to NCEI as part of the Integrated Ocean Observing System Data Assembly Centers (IOOS DACs) Data Stewardship Program. Each month, NCEI adds to this dataset the data collected during the previous month.

The nearshore sensors are part of the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) and are designed to measure a variety of ocean parameters at fixed points. nss_cwb_001 was located 0.85 mi (1.4 km) offshore of Waialae Beach Park in Maunalua Bay on the South Shore of Oahu in the State of Hawaii for the Department of Health (DOH) Clean Water Branch (CWB). Originally mounted on an inline mooring at about 6 meters depth, the sensor package was later moved to about 9 meters depth on August 27, 2019. PacIOOS nearshore sensors monitor coastal water conditions to help provide early indications of potentially polluted run-off from storm drainage, sewage spills, and soil erosion from land-based waterways such as streams and other outflows that lead directly into the ocean.
