Current, wave, temperature, salinity, and turbidity data from moorings and bottom-mounted instruments in Pelekane and Kawaihae Bays, Hawaii 2010-11 to 2011-03 (NCEI Accession 0138581)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Spatial and temporal measurements of meteorologic, oceanographic,
and sedimentological data were made during the 2010-2011 winter
in Pelekane and Kawaihae Bays, on the Kohala coast of the
northwest side of the Island of Hawaii. This data set
consists of the oceanographic measurements at depths of 2
to 15 m made by the US Geological Survey.

Bottom-mounted oceanographic instrument packages were deployed
along the 5-m and 15-m isobaths, as well as a cross-shore array
in the central region of Kawaihae Bay. This cross-shore
array included three bottom-mounted oceanographic instrument
packages on the 2-m, 5-m, and 15-m isobaths, and two moorings
on the 5-m and 15-m isobaths.
