Water Temperature collected from Commercial Lobster Traps in Gulf of Maine and Southern New England Shelf from 1880-01-16 to 2017-05-16 (NCEI Accession 0162412)

This accession contains bottom temperature data from lobster traps sites the the Gulf of Maine and the South New England Bight. While some historical data is available from the Woods Hole dock back to the 1880's and for from the Boothbay Harbor dock back to 1920's, most of the hourly time series begins in 2001 at over 100 fixed locations where commercial lobstermen have placed their traps. The water depths range from 1- 405 meters. The one .csv file contains the following variables - the lobster pot location ( site), the latitude (degrees N), longitude (degrees E), pot depth (m) and sea water temperature (degrees C) of each record.

The variability associated with tidal, wind, seasonal, and inter-annual processes can be depicted at nearly all sites in this multi-year time series. This data was collected as part of the Environmental Monitors on Lobster Traps (eMOLT) project - a non-profit collaboration of industry, science and academics devoted to the monitoring of the physical environment of the Gulf of Maine and the Southern New England Shelf.
