This nearshore sensor (NS01) operated between August 16, 2008 and March 22, 2013. It was located at the bridge pier of the Waikīkī 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 was fixed to a piling at about 0.5 meter depth. Data were 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.
