The PacIOOS wave buoy off the southwest coast of Lānaʻi (CDIP #239; NDBC #51213) measures water temperature approximately 2.5 miles (4.0 km) southwest of Kaumalapau Harbor and 2.5 miles northeast of Palaua Point on the southwestern tip of the island of Lānaʻi in the State of Hawaiʻi. Data are transmitted every half hour. The temperature sensor is located at the base of the 0.9 meter spherical buoy, approximately 45 cm or 18 inches below the ocean surface.
The Lānaʻi Southwest wave buoy is owned and managed by PacIOOS. 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 historical water temperature observations at a nearby location, please visit the archive of the Kaumalapau, Lānaʻi wave buoy (CDIP #146; NDBC #51203) that operated between May 17, 2007 and May 3, 2017. The historical location experienced significant damage during vessel strikes and was replaced by the Lānaʻi Southwest wave buoy in a less frequented area to help avoid future collisions.
