Biological, chemical, physical and time series data collected from station WQB04 by University of Hawai'i at Hilo and assembled by Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) in the North Pacific Ocean from 2010-10-23 to 2016-12-31 (NCEI Accession 0161523)

NCEI Accession 0161523 contains biological, chemical, physical and time series data in netCDF formatted files, which follow the Climate and Forecast metadata convention (CF) and the Attribute Convention for Data Discovery (ACDD). University of Hawai'i at Hilo collected the data from their in-situ moored station named WQB04: PacIOOS Water Quality Buoy 04 (WQB-04): Hilo Bay, Big Island, Hawaii, in the North Pacific Ocean. PacIOOS, which assembles data from University of Hawai'i at Hilo and other sub-regional coastal and ocean observing systems of the U. S. Pacific Islands, submitted the data to NCEI as part of the Integrated Ocean Observing System Data Assembly Centers (IOOS DACs) Data Stewardship Program. Each month, NCEI adds to the accession the data collected during the previous month.

The water quality buoys are part of the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) and are designed to measure a variety of ocean parameters at fixed points. WQB04 is located in Hilo Bay on the east side of the Big Island. Continuous sampling of this area provides a record of baseline conditions of the chemical and biological environment for comparison when there are pollution events such as storm runoff or a sewage spill.
