Hawaii Ocean Time-series Data Collection




aloha_seaview_mapScientists working on the Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT) program have been making repeated observations of the hydrography, chemistry and biology of the water column at a station north of Oahu, Hawaii to provide a comprehensive description of the ocean at a site representative of the North Pacific subtropical gyre. SeaView is providing data from its partner repositories collected on or nearby the HOT station Aloha at 22.75N 158.00W.
