attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String The water quality buoys are part of the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) and are designed to measure a variety of ocean parameters at fixed points. WQB05 is located in Pelekane Bay near Kawaihae Harbor on the west side of the Big Island. Continuous sampling of this area provides a record of baseline conditions of the chemical and biological environment for comparison when there are pollution events such as storm runoff or a sewage spill.
