In June 2006, a Campbell Scientific Weather Station was installed at Cantilever Point on the FHL campus by the Carrington lab. We added underwater sensors (-1.7 m below MLLW) in March 2010. Temperature loggers have also been deployed along a vertical transect (20ft to 80ft) by the Sebens lab since 2006. Each parameter monitored by the weather station is listed below with the corresponding unit of measurement and instrument.
