Description:
Abstract:
This metadata record describes moored seawater temperature data collected at Santa Cruz Island, California, USA, by PISCO. Measurements were collected using StowAway Tidbit Temperature Loggers (Onset Computer Corp. TBIC32+4+27) beginning 2006-06-06. The instrument depth was 014 meters, in an overall water depth of 015 meters (both relative to Mean Sea Level, MSL). The sampling interval was 2.0 minutes.
Purpose:
These data were collected by PISCO to understand the physical processes of the inner continental shelf and their potential effects on marine ecology.

Description_of_Geographic_Extent:
Pelican Bay: PELXXX: The nearshore mooring is located on the North side of Santa Cruz Island, California, USA, approximately 0.5 km East of Pelican Bay. The base of the mooring is in 15 meters of water below Mean Sea Level (MSL), and it extends up to 4 meters below MSL. The altitudeMinimum and altitudeMaximum tags in this initial coverage section refer to the logger measurement range (with depths expressed as negative altitudes) and are also referenced to MSL. They do not represent the overall water depth.

PISCO, CINMS and NOAA request that end-users acknowledge both entities in any publications using these PISCO/Sanctuary data. The acknowledgement should read: "This study utilized data collected by the Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans: a long-term ecological consortium funded by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. Some PISCO data are also provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration." PISCO also requests that end-users provide PISCO with copies of any published manuscripts using the PISCO/Sanctuary data. Manuscripts should be sent to the PISCO Program Coordinator (contact information available at www.piscoweb.org.) NOAA, NESDIS and NODC would appreciate recognition as the resource from which these data were obtained in any publications and/or other representations of these data. Extensive efforts are made to ensure that online data are accurate and up to date, but the authors, PISCO and CINMS will not take responsibility for any errors that may exist in data provided online. Furthermore, the user assumes all responsibility for errors in analysis or judgment resulting from use of the data.

Process_Description:
This metadata record has been derived by NCDDC from its original format, Ecological Metadata Language (EML) version 2.0.1, using the original PISCO EML metadata record as a source. All information contained herein has been derived from the original EML record with the following exceptions: 1) Metadata Contact Information, previously referencing PISCO, has been replaced by NCDDC contact information. 2) Additional Online Linkage elements have been added to the Citation Information element in the Identification Information section. 3) A Supplemental Information element was added to provide a description of and link to the WCOS Project Document. 4) The Distribution Information section has been modified to provide contact information for NOAA/NESDIS/NODC as a data distributor. 5) An additional Distribution Information section was added to provide contact information for NOAA/NESDIS/NCDDC as a data distributor. 6) Two additional Process Step elements (including this one) have been inserted to describe both the conversion of PISCO data from ASCII to netCDF and the creation of this metadata record. 7) Values for Metadata Date and Metadata Future Review Date have been generated using the system clock as there are no analogous elements present in the PISCO EML record.

Access_Instructions:
The link above will take you to the NOAA National Oceanographic Data Center information page for this dataset. The filename of the dataset encodes several bits of information about the dataset and the sensor used to collect the data, as follows: the first six uppercase characters followed by an underscore is the site name abbreviation; the next three digits are the overall water depth at mooring or bottom-mounted ADCP in meters below Mean Sea Level (MSL); the next four uppercase characters are the instrument type; the following three digits are is the depth of the instrument in meters below Mean Sea Level (MSL); an uppercase "R" followed by a two digit replicate number and an underscore indicate the replicate instrument identifier. The last eight digits are the date of the first measurement in "YYYYMMDD" format. There are several ways to access the data: original netCDF file, OPeNDAP data access form, WMS, WCS, NCML, UDDC, and ISO metadata. The ISO metadata is derived only from the NetCDF header attributes and may not be complete.
