PacIOOS Nearshore Sensor 12 (NS12): Kalama Beach Park, Maui, Hawaii


The nearshore sensors are part of the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) and are designed to measure a variety of ocean parameters at fixed point locations. NS12 is located at Kalama Beach Park in Kihei, Maui. The instrument is a 6600V2-4 Multi-parameter water quality logger. The package is fixed to a mooring at about 1.5m depth.
