This nearshore sensor (NS17) is located in Pago Bay near the mouth of the Pago River on the eastern shore of Guam. The sensor package is mounted to the sea floor at approximately 1.5 meters depth. This instrument does not report in real-time. Data are logged every 4 minutes and retrieved periodically. PacIOOS nearshore sensors monitor coastal water conditions to help provide early indications of potentially polluted run-off from storm drainage, sewage spills, and soil erosion from land-based waterways such as streams and other outflows that lead directly into the ocean. Owned and maintained by PacIOOS under the supervision of Dr. Margaret McManus and lab. The University of Guam is a key partner.
This nearshore sensor acts as a follow-on to NS15, whose mooring was re-located 77 feet (23 meters) south to the NS17 location in order to minimize burial of the sensor by silt. Click here for historical data at the prior NS15 site, which span 2012-2018.
