General Information

Title:PISCO: Physical Oceanography: moored temperature data: Terrace Point, California, USA (TPT001)
Short Name:PISCO moored temperature, TPT001
Identifier:autogen.2017060422122199793.1
Abstract:
This metadata record describes moored seawater temperature data collected at Terrace Point, California, USA, by PISCO. Measurements were collected using a HOBO U22 Water Temp Pro V2 (Onset Computer Corp. U22-001) beginning 2011-01-21. The instrument depth was 000 meters, in an overall water depth of 18 meters (both relative to Mean Sea Level, MSL). The sampling interval was 4.0 minutes.

Data Set Characteristics

Geographic Region:
Geographic Description:Terrace Point: TPT001: This inner-shelf mooring is located offshore of the city of Santa Cruz, California, USA. The mooring lies in an overall water depth of 018 meters (referenced to Mean Sea Level, MSL). The altitudeMinimum and altitudeMaximum tags in this initial coverage section refer to the logger measurement range (with depths expressed as negative altitudes) and are also referenced to MSL. They do not represent the overall water depth.

Sampling, Processing and Quality Control Methods

Step by Step Procedures
Step 1:  
Description:
Methods for moored temperature collection and quality-control are available online, see the protocol citation.
Protocol:
Title: PISCO UCSC Tidbit Temperature Protocol
Online Distribution Info:
 http://data.piscoweb.org/catalog/metacat/PISCO_UCSC_Tidbit_Temperature_Protocol.40.1/piscoweb
Instrument(s): HOBO U22 Water Temp Pro V2 (Onset Computer Corp. U22-001)
Sampling Coverage:
Geographic Region:
Geographic Description:In this sampling section, the altitudeMaximum tag refers to the altitude of Mean Sea Level (MSL), and the altitudeMinimum tag refers to the nominal altitude of the sea floor. In other words, the altitudeMinimum represents the overall water depth, expressed as a negative altitude.
