Biological, physical, and time series data collected from station nss_008 by University of Hawai'i at Mānoa and assembled by Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) in the Philippine Sea from 2010-05-24 to 2014-05-26 (NCEI Accession 0277756)

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

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_008: PacIOOS Nearshore Sensor 008: Koror, Palau, in the Philippine Sea. 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_008 was located at the dock of the Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) in Koror in southern Palau. The sensor package was mounted to the sea floor at approximately 3.5 meters depth. 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.
