Title: Saipan Coral Nursery Current and Temperature Instrument Data through the Saipan Coral Nursery Pilot Project (SCNPP) in the Northern Mariana Islands from 2019-06-17 to 2020-06-29 (NCEI Accession 0234101)
Abstract: Water temperature and current time series data provided in this data set are from a Lowell Instruments TCM-1 Current Meter deployed at the Saipan Coral Nursery Pilot Project (SCNPP) site in Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI). The temperature and current instrument recorders were deployed for a period of <1 year, from June of 2019 - February 2020 and were re-deployed again for a period of <1 year from April of 2020 - June of 2020, and have been redeployed since then. The data is a part of an ongoing timeseries and updated entries are expected annually. Data are downloaded and converted using the proprietary MAT_LOGGER drive and MAT Logger Commander also provided by Lowell Instruments. The Current data described here includes: local date and time, speed (cm/s), Bearing (degrees), Velocity-N (cm/s) and Velocity-E (cm/s). The current sample interval over time stays consistently at 1 minute intervals. The Temperature data described here includes local date and time and temperature (c). The temperature sample interval over time ranges from 1 - 2 minutes.
