Water temperature data from Subsurface Temperature Recorders (STRs) deployed at coral reef sites in Batangas, Philippines from 2012-03-13 to 2015-05-28 (NCEI Accession 0163746)

Metadata Updated: February 26, 2021

Water temperature data were collected by the NOAA Coral Reef Ecosystem Program (CREP) using subsurface temperature recorders (STRs) deployed at fixed climate survey sites located on hard bottom shallow water (< 15 m) habitats in the Philippines. Climate sites were established by CREP to assess multiple features of the coral reef environment (in addition to the data described herein) over time. These STRs or high-accuracy temperature loggers made by SeaBird Electronics (SBE) were deployed on the reef for a period of 3 years from March 2012 to May 2015, and the sample interval was set to one hour. STRs aid in the monitoring of seawater temperature variability. These water temperature time series data for the Philippines, along with other data collected at the climate survey sites (archived separately), can be used to help scientists assess and understand how coral reefs are responding to thermal stress that can lead to coral bleaching.
