Weather Station: Hawaii: Oahu: Coconut Island


The Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB) automatic weather station (AWS) records hourly measurements of precipitation, air temperature, wind speed and direction, and irradiance. Sensors include an Eppley 295-385 nm ultraviolet (UV) radiometer, a LiCor 200SZ Pyranometer, and a LiCor Quantameter (400-700 nm). The sensors are located on the roof of HIMB's Coral Reef Ecology Laboratory (Point Lab) on Moku o Loe (Coconut Island) in Kaneohe Bay on the windward (eastern) coast of Oahu in Hawaii. An accompanying sea water temperature sensor is located less than 10 m offshore of the weather station at a shallow depth of approximately 1 m.
