Oceanographic and biological water parameter data collected from the M45X mooring in Lake Michigan, Great Lakes region to support the long-term ecological research Muskegon transect studies by NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory from 2021-09-28 to 2022-05-17 (NCEI Accession 0276519)

Metadata Updated: March 17, 2023

One mooring was deployed near the M45 station by the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) from September 2021 to May 2022. These observations support the GLERL Long-Term Ecological Research program. The M45 station is part of the Muskegon Transect in Lake Michigan near the NOAA Lake Michigan Field Station, Muskegon, MI. The “M45X” mooring is a physical and biological mooring that collects temperature and fluorometer measurements over the winter. The approximate depth of this mooring location was 45 m.

The M45X mooring collects surface and bottom temperature and fluorometer measurements hourly. The temperature sensors were Sea-Bird 39. The Wet Labs fluorometers measured voltage, which were converted to chlorophyll concentrations. Please see the “Supplemental Information” for more information about the chlorophyll concentrations. The data files for this mooring contain the station name “noaa-glerl-michigan-lter-m45x-” in the file name.

All measurements were collected continuously during this time period. Included in this data package are two data formats, netCDF and CSV. Metadata is included in the netCDF file, the CSV files also contain a data dictionary explaining the column headings.
