General

PISCO moored temperature, TPT001
TPT001_018MHP2000R00_20110121.50.1

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.

Geographic Region

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.

Project Information

Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans (PISCO)
PISCO
Consortium

PISCO is a large-scale marine research program that focuses on understanding the near-shore ecosystems of the U.S. West Coast. An interdisciplinary collaboration of scientists from four universities, PISCO integrates long-term monitoring of ecological and oceanographic processes at dozens of coastal sites with experimental work in the lab and field. We explore how individual organisms, populations, and ecological communities vary over space and time. Findings are applied to issues of ocean conservation and management, and are shared through our public outreach and student training programs.

PISCO is funded by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.

Methods & Sampling

Methods for moored temperature collection and quality-control are available online, see the protocol citation.

Geographic Region

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.
