National Coral Reef Monitoring Program: Water temperature data from subsurface temperature recorders (STRs) deployed at coral reef sites in the Pacific Remote Island Areas

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This collection contains water temperature data collected using subsurface temperature recorders (STRs) that aid in the monitoring of seawater temperature variability at permanent coral reef sites in the Pacific Remote Island Areas as part of the ongoing NOAA National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP). The high-accuracy temperature loggers used to gather this data are made by SeaBird Electronics (SBE). They are deployed on the reef for a period of 3 years at depths ranging from 0 to 30 meters along depth transects at ocean and climate change monitoring survey sites. When an STR is recovered, typically another STR is deployed in the same location. Raw data with an original sample interval ranging from 1 to 20 minutes are averaged hourly, and gaps of longer than one hour in the time-series, due to instrument failure or battery death, are padded with null values.

The temperature data provided in this data set were collected during NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC), Coral Reef Ecosystem Program (CREP) led NCRMP missions.
