Oceanographic data collected from station Stearns Wharf in the Coastal Waters of California by Marine Science Institute at University of California, Santa Barbara, and assembled by Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System (SCCOOS) Regional Association from 2005-09-16 to 2016-12-31 (NCEI Accession 0157036)

Metadata Updated: February 7, 2018

NCEI Accession 0157036 contains oceanographic and surface meteorological data collected from an automated shore station with a suite of sensors that are attached to Stearns Wharf along the nearshore California coast. These automated sensors measure CHLOROPHYLL A CONCENTRATION, CONDUCTIVITY, DEPTH - OBSERVATION, HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE, SALINITY, WATER DENSITY and WATER TEMPERATURE at frequent intervals in the nearshore coastal ocean. This data can provide local and regional information on mixing and upwelling, land run-off, and algal blooms. Marine Science Institute at University of California, Santa Barbara, collected the data and provided the data to SCCOOS, which assembles data from Marine Science Institute at University of California, Santa Barbara, and other sub-regional coastal and ocean observing systems of the Southern California Coastal United States, submitted the data to NCEI as part of the Integrated Ocean Observing System Data Assembly Centers (IOOS DACs) Data Stewardship Program.The data are made available in netCDF formatted files, which follow the Climate and Forecast metadata convention (CF) and the Attribute Convention for Data Discovery (ACDD). Each quarter, NCEI adds to the Accession the data collected during the previous quarter.
