Deployment: CRIMP2

NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL) CRIMP2 buoy
Platform Type:
Start Date: 
Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, Hawaii

Coral Reef Instrumented Monitoring Platform (21.46°N, 157.80°W).

Excerpt from

In June 2008 PMEL's carbon group, working with collaborators from the University of Hawaii Department of Oceanography, relocated the CRIMP moored buoy from Southern Kaneohe Bay to a location further north closer to the bay's fringing reef structure and mounted instruments that measure a variety of biogeochemical parameters. These data are used to evaluate the temporal variability in air-sea CO2 fluxes and to assist in examining the mechanisms controlling CO2 fluxes, led by University of Hawaii oceanographer Christopher Sabine. The climate and ecosystem monitoring at this location is supported by NOAA's Coral Reef Conservation Program and Ocean Acidification Program.
