Automated Shore Stations

Time series temperature, salinity, chlorophyll, turbidity at regular intervals in the nearshore coastal ocean.

Harmful Algae & Red Tides

The goals of this program are to collect comparable data at five regional stations, provide timely updates on Harmful Algal Bloom events.

Meteorological Observations

Meteorological Assimilation data Ingest System (MADIS) visualized in google maps with observations of sea surface temperature, air temperature, wind speed and direction, atmospheric pressure, relative humidity, and precipitation rate.

Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS)

Satellite data with sea surface temperature (SST), chlorophyll, Normalized Water-Leaving Radiance at 551 mm.

Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS)

JPL ROMS output visualized in time and space for water temperature, salinity, sea surface height, and ocean currents.

Surface Current Mapping

HF Radar derived surface currents throughout the Bight.

Wave Conditions

Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) Swell maps of wave conditions for Southern California. 

Time series temperature, salinity, chlorophyll, turbidity at regular intervals in the nearshore coastal ocean.

The goals of this program are to collect comparable data at five regional stations an provide timely updates on Harmful Algal Bloom events.
