Temperature, salinity, and water chemistry data from quarterly surface transects of the Comprehensive Environmental Monitoring Program at the Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion plant in Keahole, Island of Hawaii 1993-2017 (NCEI Accession 0156452)

The Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority (NELHA) is a state agency that operates a unique and innovative ocean science and Technology park in Kailua-Kona on the island of Hawaii. It supports an Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) facility at Keahole Point on the west coast of the Island of Hawaii. Five stations along six transects have been established where quasi-quarterly surface water measurements are acquired for temperature, salinity, bacteria, and 11 water chemistry parameters within 1993 to 2017 from small boats. The original data were provided as Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.
