National Coral Reef Monitoring Program: Water Temperature Data from Subsurface Temperature Recorders (STRs) deployed at coral reef sites in the Pacific Remote Island Areas from 2011 to 2017

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Water temperature data provided in this data set were collected using subsurface temperature recorders (STRs) deployed between 2011 and 2016 at permanent coral reef sites in the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument during NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC), Ecosystem Sciences Division led cruises. The high-accuracy temperature loggers made by SeaBird Electronics (SBE) were deployed on the reef for a period of 1-3 years at depths ranging from 0 to 30 meters along depth transects at Ocean and Climate Change monitoring survey sites. When a STR was recovered, typically another STR was deployed in the same location. Raw data with an original sample interval ranging from 1 to 20 minutes were averaged hourly, and gaps of longer than one hour in the time-series, due to instrument failure or battery death, were padded with null values. Temperature data are archived by region and year recovered. For analysis purposes, temperature sensor deployments are grouped by site, and temperature data from successive deployments at each site are concatenated.
