title: "Seawater temperature data collected from Bodega Head, California, USA, by CBNMS and BML"
history: "2012-03-06 09:41:59 UTC: File created at 2012-03-06 09:41:59 UTC"
summary: "These seawater data are collected on the outer shelf by a moored string of temperature sensors operated at Bodega Head, California, USA, by GFNMS and BML. Beginning on 20050626, temperature measurements were collected using an Onset Tidbit temperature sensor. The measurements reflect a 6 minute sampling interval at the surface and a 2 minute sampling interval at all other depths."
