Oceanographic data collected from station Santa Monica Pier in the Coastal Waters of California by Institute of the Environment at University of California, Los Angeles, and assembled by Southern California Coastal Ocean Observing System (SCCOOS) Regional Association from 2005-06-16 to 2015-07-13 (NCEI Accession 0157016)

NCEI Accession 0157016 contains oceanographic and surface meteorological data collected from an automated shore station with a suite of sensors that are attached to Santa Monica Pier along the nearshore California coast. These automated sensors measure CHLOROPHYLL A CONCENTRATION, CONDUCTIVITY, DEPTH - OBSERVATION, HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE, SALINITY, WATER DENSITY and WATER TEMPERATURE at frequent intervals in the nearshore coastal ocean. These data can provide local and regional information on mixing and upwelling, land run-off, and algal blooms. Institute of the Environment at University of California, Los Angeles, collected the data and provided the data to SCCOOS, which assembles data from Institute of the Environment at University of California, Los Angeles, and other sub-regional coastal and ocean observing systems of the Southern California Coastal United States, submitted the data to NCEI as part of the Integrated Ocean Observing System Data Assembly Centers (IOOS DACs) Data Stewardship Program.The data are made available in netCDF formatted files, which follow the Climate and Forecast metadata convention (CF) and the Attribute Convention for Data Discovery (ACDD). Each quarter, NCEI adds to this accession the data collected or updated during the previous quarter.

Supplemental Information
The IOOS vocabulary of oceanographic and meteorological parameters is at http://mmisw.org/ont/ioos/parameter. The mapping of this vocabulary to the CF standard names vocabulary is at http://mmisw.org/ont/ioos/map_ioos_cf. The netCDF data files in the Accession use both vocabularies.

In this accession, NCEI has archived multiple versions of these data. The latest (and best) version of these data has the largest version number.
