This nearshore sensor (NSS-005) is located at the dock of the Department of Marine and Wildlife Resources (DMWR) in Pago Pago Harbor on the island of Tutuila in American Samoa. The sensor package is mounted to the sea floor at approximately 2 meters depth. This instrument does not report in real-time. Data are logged every 4 minutes and retrieved periodically. 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. Key partners include the University of Hawaiʻi Sea Grant Program and DMWR.
