Physical and biochemical oceanographic data from the Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT) program collected by University of Hawaii at Station ALOHA in the Pacific Ocean 100 miles north of Oahu, Hawaii, since 1988

browse graphicPreview graphic
This dataset includes physical and biochemical oceanographic observational data from the Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT) Program, including thermosaliograph, CTD, bottle and biochemical data. The HOT program makes repeated observations of the physics, biology and chemistry at a site approximately 100 km north of Oahu, Hawaii. The program began in 1988. Two stations are visited about once a month: Kahe Point (Station 1: 21.34N, 158.27W) and Station ALOHA (Station 2: 22.75N, 158W). Various other stations are made intermittently in support of similar research objectives or mooring deployments.

  • Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT) was initiated and funded through grants from the National Science Foundation under the auspices of the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) and the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE). The field phase of these programs has ended, but support from the Ocean Sciences Division of NSF has enabled continuation of our basic HOT measurement program. The physical oceanographic component contributes to the objectives of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) Programme by providing information on interannual to decadal variability of the North Pacific Ocean. The US CLIVAR Office funded the physical oceanographic data during 2008.
