Abstract:

Water temperature time series data provided in this data set are from subsurface temperature recorders (STRs) deployed at permanent coral reef sites across the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument (PRIMNM) by the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC), Ecosystem Sciences Division (ESD; formerly the Coral Reef Ecosystem Division) as part of the NOAA National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP). The STRs were deployed for a period of 1-3 years from 2011 to 2018 and recovered during ESD-led NCRMP missions to the PRIMNM in 20142015, 2017, and 2018.

The high-accuracy temperature loggers made by Sea-Bird Electronics (SBE) were weighted and strapped to solid substrate on the seafloor by SCUBA divers at depths ranging from 0 to 30 meters at permanent monitoring sites established by ESD's Ocean and Climate Change team. Sample interval over time ranges from 30 seconds to 60 minutes; the current sample interval is 5 minutes. Each time an STR was recovered another STR was typically deployed at the same location and depth and was assigned the same OCC_SITEID. Data were downloaded using the SeaBird SeaTerm V2 program and post-processed using R to trim “out of water” data.

Purpose:

Water temperature time series data aid in the monitoring of seawater temperature variability and are used to help scientists assess and understand how coral reefs monitored as part of the NOAA National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP) are responding to thermal stress.

Notes:

Note: dates for last leg of 2015 PRIA missing from extents.

Supplemental Information:

The NOAA National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP) details a long term approach to provide an ecosystem perspective via monitoring climate, fish, benthic, and socioeconomic variables in a consistent and integrated manner. The NCRMP coordinates various NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) biological, physical, and human dimensions activities into a cohesive NOAA-wide effort. Through the implementation of the NCRMP, NOAA is able to clearly and concisely communicate results of national-scale monitoring to national, state, and territorial policy makers, resource managers, and the public on a periodic basis.

NCRMP is a framework for conducting sustained observations of biological, climate, and socioeconomic indicators at 10 priority coral reefs across the U.S. and its territories. This integrated approach consolidates monitoring of coral reefs under a uniform method in the Pacific, Atlantic, Caribbean, and the Gulf of Mexico for the first time. NCRMP is funded by the Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) and supported by NOAA Fisheries, NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS), NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic & Meteorological Laboratory (AOML), NOAA Coral Reef Watch, and many other partners.

The Ecosystem Sciences Division (ESD) at NOAA Fisheries is leading in-situ climate monitoring in the U.S. Pacific Islands Region. The climate component of NCRMP in the Pacific provides a comprehensive view of climate change impacts on coral reef ecosystems and helps identify areas of resilience and vulnerability. The key indicators used to identify and monitor climate-driven trends include 1) thermal stress caused by changes in sea temperature, 2) ocean acidification resulting from changes in carbonate chemistry, and 3) ecological impacts by collecting data on coral growth rates, erosion, and community structure to understand the impacts of thermal stress and ocean acidification on the ecosystem. Each year, ESD scientists work closely with CRCP and partners during Reef Assessment and Monitoring Program (RAMP) missions to collect data using moored oceanographic (subsurface temperature recorders) and ecological (calcification accretion units [CAUs] and autonomous reef monitoring structures [ARMS]) instruments stationed at fixed sites in the Pacific Ocean, and water samples collected by divers. The in-situ data and satellite-based observations are also used in modeling efforts. Innovative analysis techniques are used to develop products that give fellow scientists, managers, decision makers and the public a better understanding of a region’s resources and how they are changing over time.

Data Access Policy:

NOAA Coral Reef Ecosystem Program (CREP) Data Sharing Recommendations, version 9.0 updated August 12, 2015:

CREP welcomes the opportunity to collaborate on research issues contributing to the scientific basis for better management of marine ecosystems. CREP has a very diverse set of field activities that generates large volumes of data using an array of data collection protocols.

The following recommendations are for your consideration as you use this data:

1) Data analyses should take all field exigencies into account. The most effective way to do this would be active collaboration with CREP principal investigators.

2) In all presentations, product releases, or publications using data generated by CREP, proper acknowledgement of both CREP and the individuals responsible for data collection is expected. Citing the DOI (if available) is preferred, a non-DOI example is listed below.

3) If you collect or generate data for the same study areas, CREP requests that you share relevant information on complimentary data collections.

4) Those receiving data are strongly urged to inform the CREP Data Management Team of any errors and discrepancies that are discovered during the course of using these data. They are further urged to bring to the attention of the Team all problems and difficulties encountered in using these data. This information is necessary in order to improve the collections and to facilitate more efficient and economical data processing and retrieval. The users are asked to supply copies of any missing data that may be located, and to provide information as to significant subsets and special aggregations of data that are developed in using the material provided.

Example acknowledgment:

"This publication makes use of data products gathered by the Ecosystem Sciences Division (ESD), Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), with funding support from the NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program. The analysis and interpretations presented here are solely that of the current authors.”

Data Access Procedure:

Technical Environment

Description:

Data are downloaded from STRs using the SeaBird SeaTerm V2 program, post-processed in R, and migrated to the NOAA Fisheries, Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC) Oracle database..

PIFSC Oracle database view: MV_OCN_NCEI_STR_PRIA

Data are exported by region and recovered year as one consolidated CSV file and zipped. The consolidated CSV files typically contain several million rows of data. Hence, the consolidated CSV file is also split into a series of 1-million row CSV files, which are also zipped.

Data Quality

Accuracy:

INSTRUMENT SPECIFICATIONS for SBE 56 and SBE 39plus (no pressure sensor):

--Rigorous 11-point temperature calibration of each sensor

--High-accuracy real-time clock. Clock Accuracy: 5 seconds/month

--Temperature Accuracy: ± 0.002 °C (-5 to +35 °C); ± 0.01 °C (+35 to +45 C)

--Temperature Resolution: 0.0001°C

--Temperature Stability: 0.0002 °C/month (0.002 °C/year)

Completeness Measure:

SBE 56 Memory Capacity: 15.9 million samples

SBE 39plus Data Memory: 9.5 million samples (without pressure)

Completeness Report:

Data from when the instrument was turned on but not yet deployed are removed, and data from the period between removal and data download are also removed. Information about instruments that were lost or that failed are excluded.

Conceptual Consistency:

All data gathered are consistent with the given methodology.

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Quality control is conducted by PIFSC ESD personnel after the data is downloaded from the instrument during the cruise, when the data are post-processed, again after it is migrated to the database, and finally when it is packaged and submitted to the NOAA archive.

Data Management

Have Resources for Management of these Data Been Identified?: Yes
Approximate Percentage of Budget for these Data Devoted to Data Management: Unknown
Do these Data Comply with the Data Access Directive?: Yes
Is Access to the Data Limited Based on an Approved Waiver?: No
Approximate Delay Between Data Collection and Dissemination: Unknown
Actual or Planned Long-Term Data Archive Location: NCEI-MD
Approximate Delay Between Data Collection and Archiving: Unknown
How Will the Data Be Protected from Accidental or Malicious Modification or Deletion Prior to Receipt by the Archive?:

The data is captured in several locations: files stored on the cruise server during the mission and the PIFSC network, and data are imported into the PIFSC Oracle database. The cruise server is regularly backed up by the cruise data manager while at sea, and the PIFSC network and Oracle database are maintained and regularly backed up by PIFSC ITS.

Lineage

Lineage Statement:

STRs are usually deployed on the reef for a period of 3 years (shorter or longer deployments occur) at depths ranging from 0-30 m at permanent monitoring sites established by the NOAA Fisheries, Ecosystem Sciences Division.

Current methodology

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 256776
Description:

STRs are attached to a mounting bracket, weighted, and strapped to solid substrate (attached dead coral or rock) at the benthos by SCUBA divers using cable ties. A GPS point is taken by surface support personnel at the surface float that is positioned directly above the instrument during the dive. The depth of the instrument is taken by photographing a diver depth gauge next to the serial number of the instrument after installation.

On recovery, a second waypoint and depth are taken in the same manner as the deployment before cutting the instrument free. When a STR is recovered, typically another STR is deployed in the same location and the same depth and is assigned the same OCC_SITEID (as long as the coordinates are within 100-m diameter and 3-m depth cylinder of the pre-existing OCC_SITEID).

Description:

Data are downloaded using the SeaBird SeaTerm V2 program, and then post-processed in R. Data from when the instrument was turned on but not yet deployed are removed, and data from the period between removal and data download are also removed.
