Near-bottom Temperature, Conductivity, and Light Transmission Observations in the Western Gulf of Maine, 2013-2017

 

Description: This web page provides access to near-bottom temperature, conductivity, and light transmission observations made at six locations in the western Gulf of Maine. Sensors were deployed approximately 13 m above bottom on selected moorings of the University of Maine Ocean Observing System (UMOOS). UMOOS is part the Northeastern Regional Association of Coastal and Ocean Observing Systems (NERACOOS). The primary objective of the near-bottom observations was to document the frequency of fine-grained sediment resuspension. Hourly averages of some of the data were telemetered and released in real time on the UMOOS and NERACOOS web sites. The data released here are at the original sample rate, which provides higher temporal resolution. The data are truncated when fouling makes the measurement drift larger than the signal.

Duration: Site A: Oct. 2013 – Jan. 2017; Sites B and E: Jun. 2014 - Dec. 2017; Site I: Jun. 2014 - Nov. 2017; Site M: Jun. 2015 - Oct. 2016.
