Description:
Abstract:
Data from Coral Reef Ecosystem Division (CRED), NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC) conductivity and temperature recorders provide a time series of conductivity and water temperature at coral reef sites. Data is typically collected at 1800 second intervals using a MicroCAT Model SBE37 (Seabird Electronics, Inc., www.seabird.com). Time series data combining multiple deployments from a given site may also be available. Please contact CRED with any questions. For program information see the web site <http://www.pifsc.noaa.gov/cred/oceanography.php>
Purpose:
Monitoring of temperature and conductivity provides information about environmental factors influencing coral reef ecosystems.
Supplemental_Information:
Platform Manufacturer: NA, Platform Model: NA, Platform Serial Number: NONE; Instrument Manufacturer: Sea-Bird Electronics, Inc., Instrument Model: SBE 37SM MicroCAT C-T Recorder (Serial interface and Memory) with RS-232 Interface, Instrument Serial Number: 37SM265201887. This record refers to two (2) data files that have the same name as this metadata file. The file with extension .ASC is the raw data uploaded from the instrument, including header information. Files with extension .CDP (CRED Data Product) have had the header information, pre and post deployment data removed and a preliminary quality control conducted by plotting and reviewing the recorded data and removing obviously erroneous records. Each row corresponds to a data record. Data within the .CDP file is supplied in columnar ASCII format: Column01: Year (UTC), Column02: Month (UTC), Column03: Day (UTC), Column04: Hour (UTC), Column05: Minute (UTC), Column06: Second (UTC), Column07: Temperature (Degrees Celsius), Column08: Conductivity (Siemens/meter), Column09: Salinity (PSU). Instrument Specifications: Temperature (Degrees Celsius): Measurement Range -5 to 35; Initial Accuracy +/-0.002, Typical Stability 0.0002 per month, Resolution 0.0001. Conductivity (Siemens/meter): Measurement Range 0 to 7; Initial Accuracy 0.0003; Typical Stability 0.0003 per month; Resolution 0.00001. Clock Accuracy: 5 seconds per month.
