Integrated Coral Observing Network (ICON) meteorological and oceanographic observations from stations deployed at key coral reef areas between 2002-01-01 and 2017-12-31

browse graphicPreview graphic
This collection includes data from various Integrated Coral Observing Network (ICON) stations as part of the Coral Reef Early Warning System developed by NOAA Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR).

The Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) of OAR is conducting research on the influence of meteorological and oceanographic factors upon coral bleaching, and other biogeochemical processes occurring on coral reefs. Instrument arrays to measure the various environmental influences are being deployed at key coral reef areas to gain long-term temporally intensive data coverage, to provide near real-time information products, and to surface-truth NOAA satellite sea surface temperature (SST) products used for coral bleaching predictions (HotSpot products). OAR has developed expert system software plus the instrument array (together called a Coral Reef Early Warning System, or ICON, station) to screen data in near real-time to test for appropriate data ranges for each of the instruments, and to issue alerts as to conditions thought to be conducive to coral bleaching, and other modeled events. At each ICON station, local collaborators also provide feedback on the presence and progress of coral bleaching and thus validate coral bleaching predictions made by satellite HotSpots and ICON information products.

Supplemental Information
Temperature is in degrees Celsius; barometric pressure is in millibars; wind speed is in knots; wind direction is in degrees of compass; conductivity is in milliSiemens cm-1; salinity is in practical salinity units; relative humidity is in percentages; rain amount is in millimeters; -9 in the data set indicates that the parameter is unavailable.
Purpose The impetus for such a framework was the perceived marked regional decline in coral reefs and the critical need to provide data and options for resource management.
