Summary
Coral Reef Evaluation and Monitoring Project (CREMP) has been monitoring temperature along the Florida Reef Tract since 1996. Temperature loggers have been or are being deployed at every active CREMP site, and currently have 52 loggers recording water temperatures on sites ranging from just south of Biscayne National Park to the waters surrounding Dry Tortugas National Park.
Parameters
Water temperature (deg. C, deg. F)
Notes
The unattended loggers were installed at all nine Value Added Sites in the CREMP Program (ID295).
Application
To document possible trends of changing water temperatures within the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.

Method
Record water temperatures using the HOBO Water Temp Pro v2 loggers (model U22-001; Onset Corporation). These loggers are set to record the temperature every hour, giving us a high resolution, continuous temperature record. Loggers are attached to the metal stakes drilled into the reef used in the CREMP coral surveys using zip ties.
