North Temperate Lakes LTER: High Frequency Water Temperature Data - Lake Mendota Buoy 2006 - current
The instrumented buoy on Lake Mendota is equipped with a thermistor chain that measures water temperature. In 2006, the thermistors were placed every half-meter from the surface through 7m, and every meter from 7m to 15m. Since 2007, the thermistors were placed every half-meter from the surface through 2m, and every meter from 2m to 20m. The sensor at the water surface is as close to the surface as feasible. A list of sensors used since the first deployment in 2006 is provided as a downloadable CSV file. Hourly and daily water temperature averages are computed from high resolution (1 minute) data.
Sampling Frequency: one minute. Number of sites: 1. Location lat/long: 43.0995, -89.4045
