This nearshore sensor (NS02) is located at a floating dock off the Hawaiʻi Yacht Club at Ala Wai Harbor by the mouth of the Ala Wai Canal near Waikīkī on the South Shore of Oʻahu in the State of Hawaiʻi. The sensor package is fixed to the floating dock just below the ocean surface. Data are transmitted every 4 minutes. 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 Hawaiʻi Yacht Club is a key partner.
