Long-term vertical water temperature observations in the deepest area of Lake Michigan's southern basin

browse graphicPreview graphic
Long-term, year-around vertical water temperature observations in the southern basin of Lake Michigan from a fixed mooring. Observations were collected from the deepest location in the southern basin of Lake Michigan, which is approximately 155 m. The mooring deployments were retrieved and replaced with a new set of thermistors annually, which causes the depth of temperature observation to vary between deployments. The temperature observations were collected as continuously as possible over the period of record, though there are some breaks in the temporal collection for maintaining equipment annually or due to loss of equipment. These observations were collected to understand the vertical thermal structure in the deep waters of Lake Michigan.

Submission Package ID: LRFXH8
Purpose These temperature data were collected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (NOAA-GLERL). Temperature measurements collected at high resolution in both time and vertical space are critical to 1) assess inter-annual variability of the thermal structure of the Great Lakes; 2) test three-dimensional model parameterization; 3) understand vertical mixing processes; and 4) to aid in interpreting biological and other environmental data.
