Hello Coral Colleagues,
Interested in water temperature data from the Florida Keys? The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Coral Reef Evaluation and Monitoring Program (CREMP) has been monitoring the coral reefs from the Upper Florida Keys to Dry Tortugas National Park since 1996. As part of this monitoring, we deploy loggers to record hourly bottom temperatures at 55 monitoring sites on hardbottom, shallow and deep fore reefs, and patch reef habitats. For more information about our monitoring effort, including where and when we have data from, please see http://myfwc.com/research/habitat/coral/cremp/cremp-temp-monitoring . For an interactive map showing CREMP monitoring sites and locations of temperature loggers, please go to http://arcg.is/2hdFeyp. This is an ArcGIS map with multiple layers - to turn on the layer showing the temperature monitoring sites, click the "Show Contents of Map" icon on the left above "Unified Florida Coral Reef Tract Map", then check the box next to "FRT Temperature Monitoring - CREMP Sites".
If you would like access to the data, please send me an email with the sites and time frame you are interested in. Looking forward to working with you!
