Brief description

This dataset contains meteorological and sea temperature data from the weather station located on the channel marker on Madge Reef, located between Thursday Island and Horn Island in the Torres Strait, installed under the Tropical Ecosystems hub of the National Environmental Research Program (NERP) and supported by the Torres Strait Regional Authority (TSRA).\n These data are collected to support scientific research within the Tropical Ecosystems hub of the National Environmental Research Program (NERP - see: http://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/science/nerp/ ) Theme 1, Program 2.3 (Torres Strait). \n \nData are made available on request to other researchers and to the public. This weather station is funded under the Tropical Ecosystems hub of the National Environmental Research Program (NERP) in conjunction with the Torres Strait Regional Authority (TSRA).\n The weather station is an AIMS Mk5 system consisting of a Vaisala WXT520 weather station, a LiCor 192 Light Sensor and a number of in-water sensors including a SeaBird SBE37 CTD (Conductivity, Temperature and Depth) and SeaBird SBE39 (Temperature and Depth). \n \nData recorded: Water Temperature (3m, 6.4 at MSL), Barometric Pressure, Air Temperature, Humidity, Solar Radiation (PAR), Wind Direction True (vector averaged), Wind Speed True (30 min average). \n \nThe weather stations collect and store data in electronic memory every ten minutes, the station uses the 3G phone network to send the data to AIMS where it is stored in a database and then made available via the web and other systems. \n \nThe data are then checked for accuracy using a number of range and historical checks, longer term summeries are then calculated along with indicies of potential thermal stress.\n
