Abstract:

The nearshore sensors are part of the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) and are designed to measure a variety of ocean parameters at fixed point locations. The PacIOOS Water Quality Sensor Partnership Program (WQSPP) supports scientists and natural resource managers to collect water quality data in order to inform research, conservation, planning, and resource management projects in the U.S. Insular Pacific region. Comprised of a network of "roving" water quality nearshore sensors, the WQSPP provides participating partners with sensors, data management, and technical capacity-building to allow for robust data collection. As part of the WQSPP, Malama Maunalua was awarded a PacIOOS nearshore sensor to enhance water quality monitoring efforts in Maunalua Bay, Oahu. Malama Maunalua is a community-based, non-profit stewardship organization committed to conserving and restoring a healthy and productive Maunalua Bay. The sensor was located on the west side of Maunalua Bay near Waialae Beach Park in Kahala where it collected critical parameters at Waialae Stream mouth and stormwater outlet to assess sediment loads and water input. The data helped to inform ongoing work at Paiko Restoration Area, which is adversely impacted by invasive algae. The sensor also complemented the existing PacIOOS sensor on the eastern side of Maunalua Bay (NS10) to improve the understanding of bay-wide, land-based inputs. Bottom mounted at a depth of between 1.0 and 1.5 meters, the instrument is a Sea-Bird Electronics model 16+ V2 coupled with a WET Labs ECO-FLNTUS combination sensor.

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.
