IMOS FAIMMS Sensor Network data - Lizard Island Relay Pole 2 Conductivity - From 20 Aug 2010 To 20 Apr 2015

The 'Facility for Automated Intelligent Monitoring of Marine Systems' (FAIMMS) is a facility of the Australian 'Integrated Marine Observing System' (IMOS) project. This data set was collected by the FAIMMS Great Barrier Reef Sensor Network and contains data from the following sensor deployments: There have been 2 deployments for the Conductivity data set. Instrumentation was deployed for measuring Conductivity at 20.6m from 20 Aug 2010 through to 11 Apr 2011, and the installation was located at/on Lizard Island Relay Pole 2 Latitude:-14.6915 - Longitude:145.466417. Sensor deployed was a Seabird SBE37-IM MicroCat CTD with Pressure manufactured by Sea-Bird Electronics, Inc., model 37IMP. The following comment was recorded regarding this deployment - 'Water Conductivity for the CDT on Relay-Pole 2 at Lizard Island: Seabird SBE37-IM MicroCat CTD with Pressure 6248 measuring Conductivity in units S/m'. Instrumentation was deployed for measuring Conductivity at 20.6m from 26 Feb 2012 through to 20 Apr 2015, and the installation was located at/on Lizard Island Relay Pole 2 Latitude:-14.6915 - Longitude:145.466417. Sensor deployed was a Seabird SBE37-IM MicroCat CTD with Pressure manufactured by Sea-Bird Electronics, Inc., model 37IMP. The following comment was recorded regarding this deployment - 'added by auto deploy'. The Pole is part of a larger deployment at Lizard Island consisting of four buoys and two relay-poles being deployed as part of the GBROOS Project. The design looks to measure the water within the lagoon as well as water impinging onto the reef and potentially any upwelling or movement of warm water that may cause thermal stress such as coral bleaching. The Relay Pole serves to form the network backbone using 2.4/5 GHz 802.11 wireless and Campbell 900 MHz spread spectrum radio's to communicate. The pole talks directly to RP1 on Plafrey Island which in urn talks to the base station at the research station. The pole also talks to buoys in its immediate range. The pole also houses a Vaisala WXT520 weather station and has an inductive modem / coupler that attaches inductive instruments to the pole. The inductive cable / sensor string runs east around Seabird Islet across the reef flat, down the reef crest into the reef front to around 20m.

Data collected during these periods: 20 Aug 2010 to 20 Apr 2015
