Abstract:

Since 2007, the Coral Reef Research Foundation (CRRF) has operated a Campbell Scientific automatic weather station (AWS) in Palau designed to measure meteorological/atmospheric conditions relevant to Koror State's Rock Islands Southern Lagoon, a World Heritage Site. With little flat land in the Rock Islands, the weather station is located on a 40-ft tower situated on a karst ridge on Ngeanges Island at 100 ft elevation, about 5.4 km (3.5 mi) from CRRF's study site at Jellyfish Lake. It measures a suite of atmospheric conditions for comparison with CRRF's temporary, floating weather station located on a tripod in Jellyfish Lake, and provides vital data for studying how local weather conditions and ENSO events affect the marine lake environment.

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 operated by the Coral Reef Research Foundation (CRRF). The original deployment and maintenance of the station was funded by the David and Lucille Packard Foundation for 8 years, with government permission by Koror State. 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).
