These data contain a time-series from
sequential deployments of an ALW-CMP PAR sensor recording quanta of photosynthetically active
radiation underwater between wavelengths 400 nm to 700 nm every two seconds. The
sensor window is wiped free of algae periodically to prevent fouling. Deployments are
three to six months in length. The sensor was mounted at 17 m depth on the fore reef, and at
2 m depth on the Backreef. PAR irradiance is measured as quanta in micromoles of photons per square meter per second.
