attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String 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. The PacIOOS Water Quality Sensor Partnership Program (WQSPP) supports scientists and natural resource managers to collect water quality data in order to inform research, conservation, planning, and resource management projects in the U.S. Insular Pacific region. Comprised of a network of "roving" water quality nearshore sensors, the WQSPP provides participating partners with sensors, data management, and technical capacity-building to allow for robust data collection. As part of the WQSPP, Dr. Kevin Rhodes of the Micronesia Islands Nature Alliance (MINA) deployed a PacIOOS nearshore water quality sensor at Kephara Island in Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), to examine environmental parameters in association with grouper (Epinephelidae) spawning aggregations. Dr. Rhodes hypothesizes that spawning times coincide with optimal environmental conditions for larval retention and survivorship, such as current strength and direction, and food availability. The study will increase our understanding about the "choices" fish make relative to reproductive success and how climate change may affect fish population persistence. Water temperature measurements collected by the sensor also serve as an invaluable time series to help reveal triggers for a large-scale coral bleaching event that occurred around Pohnpei during September 2016. Located at a depth of 40 meters, sensor data have shown that average monthly temperatures rose 0.5 C above historic averages for the months of July, August, and September 2016, peaking at an average of 30.1 C in September. The instrument is a Sea-Bird Electronics model 16+ V2 coupled with a WET Labs ECO-FLNTUS combination sensor.
