This nearshore sensor (nss_006) is located at the Kangaroo Court dock inside the lagoon near Kolonia on the north shore of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). The sensor package is mounted to the dock at approximately 1 meter depth. For a limited time period between August 2, 2011 and May 28, 2014, the sensor package was relocated approximately 275 meters further down the coast to a floating dock at the Pohnpei Surf Club. 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. The Marine and Environmental Research Institute of Pohnpei (MERIP) is a key partner.
