Abstract:

The Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB) automatic weather station (AWS) records hourly measurements of precipitation, air temperature, wind speed and direction, and irradiance. Sensors include an Eppley 295-385 nm ultraviolet (UV) radiometer, a LiCor 200SZ Pyranometer, and a LiCor Quantameter (400-700 nm). The sensors are located on the roof of HIMB's Coral Reef Ecology Laboratory (Point Lab) on Moku o Loe (Coconut Island) in Kaneohe Bay on the windward (eastern) coast of Oahu in Hawaii. An accompanying sea water temperature sensor is located less than 10 m offshore of the weather station at a shallow depth of approximately 1 m.

Purpose:

PacIOOS provides timely, reliable, and accurate ocean information to support a safe, clean, productive ocean and resilient coastal zone in the U.S. Pacific Islands region.

Credit:

This weather station is owned and managed by the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB) in collaboration with Western Weather Group, Inc. under the supervision of Dr. Kuulei Rodgers and Dr. Erik Franklin with funding by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Biological Infrastructure (DBI) Award #1319270. The Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) is funded through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as a Regional Association within the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). PacIOOS is coordinated by the University of Hawaii School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST). Original funding for WQB-03 provided through the National Science Foundation (NSF) Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR).
