|Wave Gauge Specifications:
The gauge is mounted on the second piling from the north, on the west
end of the pier, 15.13 meters below the top surface of the pier deck.
The pier deck is 10.25 meters above mean low low water (MLLW, the
commonly-referenced zero tide mark). Measurements are made using
Wind Gauge Specifications:
The gauge is mounted 20.2 meters above MLLW on the structure at
the west end of Scripps Pier. Measurements are made using
a RM Young digital anemometer.
Temperature Gauge Specifications:
The air temperature gauge is mounted 6.1 meters above MLLW
at the west end of Scripps Pier.
The sea temperature measurements were made with Platinum
Resistance Thermometers (PRT) on the second piling from the north,
on the west end of the pier. The mid-column readings are from a
depth of 3.0 meters, while the bottom readings are from a depth
of 5.6 meters.
