Kilo Nalu Nearshore Reef Observatory Data
Kilo Nalu Nearshore Reef Observatory DataPosted May 29, 2020
Real-time data plots from the Kilo Nalu Nearshore Observatory are now accessible through PacIOOS Voyager’s “Ocean Observatories” category. The shallow water cabled ocean sensor network off Kakaʻako Park west of Waikīkī, Oʻahu, was reinstalled last month and is now collecting observations of wave parameters, water properties, and ocean currents. The observatory is led by the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology Department of Ocean and Resources Engineering (ORE) and supported by PacIOOS, the Hawaiʻi Natural Energy Institute (HNEI), and the Applied Research Laboratory at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. PacIOOS’ operational wave forecast was utilized in conjunction with the Pearl Harbor wave buoy data to determine a timeframe for safe deployment conditions.
