Santa Cruz Wharf Shore Station
Seawater is pumped into a 15-gallon reservoir located beneath the wharf. Sensors are housed in the reservoir and not in the ocean. Sensors are maintained bi-weekly and real-time data are collected every 20-minutes. The station features a YSI 6600 sonde (temperature, salinity, pH, chlorophyll-a, dissolved oxygen, beam attenuation) and an Imaging Flow CytoBot. The station runs on shore power (120VAC) and is cellular telemetered. This station sees heavy fouling and significant wave action.
