The PacIOOS wave buoy off Kaumalapau Harbor (CDIP #146; NDBC #51203) operated between May 17, 2007 and May 3, 2017. It measured water temperature approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) offshore of Kaumalapau Harbor on the leeward (western) coast of Lānaʻi in the State of Hawaiʻi. Data were transmitted every half hour. The temperature sensor was located at the base of the 0.9 meter spherical buoy, approximately 45 cm or 18 inches below the ocean surface.
The Kaumalapau Harbor wave buoy was owned and managed by PacIOOS. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) provided the initial funding to purchase this buoy. Data are managed by the Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) at Scripps Institution of Oceanography of the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Long-term partnerships between PacIOOS, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and CDIP enable data streaming into the PacIOOS website and PacIOOS Voyager.

For current water temperature observations at a nearby location, please visit the Lānaʻi Southwest wave buoy (CDIP #239; NDBC #51213). The historical Kaumalapau buoy location experienced significant damage during vessel strikes and was later replaced by the Lānaʻi Southwest wave buoy in a less frequented area to help avoid future collisions.
