Title: National Coral Reef Monitoring Program: Water temperature data from subsurface temperature recorders (STRs) deployed at coral reef sites in Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary from 2016-08-05 to 2019-07-31. (NCEI Accession 0224591)
Abstract: This archive package contains water temperature data collected using subsurface temperature recorders (STRs) that aid in the monitoring of seawater temperature variability at permanent coral reef sites in Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary as part of the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program’s (CRCP’ s) National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP). High-accuracy STRs are made by SeaBird Electronics (SBE) and deployed on the reef for a period of 3 years. STRs are arranged by cardinal direction along a vertical depth transect targeting 1, 5, 15, and 25 meters at Ocean and Climate Change monitoring survey sites. In areas that cardinal directions cannot be applied STRs are then arranged in a strategic manner along the vertical targeted depth transect. When the STR is recovered, typically another STR is deployed in the same location. Raw data contains temperatures collected in 5-minute intervals each hour. Temperature data are archived by region, location and year recovered. For analysis purposes, temperature data is divided by region then by location. This submission package includes 4 instrument from East FGBNMS. Due to deteriorating weather, the cruise was cut short and the 4 West FGBNMS STRs were not collected. The temperature data provided in this data set were collected from STRs deployed at existing long-term monitoring sites by the Ocean Chemistry and Ecosystems Division(OCED) Coral Program based at NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML).
