This is the 8th season the buoy was deployed. This year again it will record data every 10 minutes and transmitted the data to a server every 30 minutes for public access at https://v2.wqdatalive.com/public/179. The data measured includes: air temperature, atmospheric pressure, wind speed and direction, water temperature, dissolved oxygen in water, chlorophyll concentration, cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) concentration, salinity, and turbidity.
