IMOS FAIMMS Sensor Network data - Lizard Island Sensor Float 2 Water Pressure - From 29 Feb 2012 To 07 Oct 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 Water Pressure data set. Instrumentation was deployed for measuring Water Pressure at 10.9m from 29 Feb 2012 through to 27 Jan 2014, and the installation was located at/on Lizard Island Sensor Float 2 Latitude:-14.694067 - Longitude:145.45705. 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'. Instrumentation was deployed for measuring Water Pressure at 10.9m from 29 Jul 2014 through to 07 Oct 2015, and the installation was located at/on Lizard Island Sensor Float 2 Latitude:-14.694067 - Longitude:145.45705. 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 buoy is one of four buoys and two relay-poles being deployed on Lizard Island 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 buoys initially have a Campbell Scientific loggers powered off four 5W solar panels, a wind turbine and one thermistor located at the base of the buoy around 60cm below the water line. The buoys use a Campbell Scientific spread-spectrum radio as well as 802.11 Wi-Fi to talk back to Relay Pole 2 and then to Replay-Pole 1 and then to the Base Station.

Data collected during these periods: 29 Feb 2012 to 07 Oct 2015
