Moored instrumentation measures water temperature and salinity year-round on the forereef of Moorea, French Polynesia at sites
FOR01, FOR04 and FOR05 on the forereef of the north, east, and west shores, respectively.
Sampling began in 2005 for this time series. Data are interpolated onto a 20 minute grid.
The two moored CTD packages are
located approximately 5 and 14 meters above the bottom, and there are up to 5
additional temperature thermistors spaced vertically along the mooring line.
This dataset is derived as a subset from three separate much larger more complex datasets:
knb-lter-mcr.30, knb-lter-mcr.31, and knb-lter-mcr.32.
