These data are preliminary. Values displayed in green have been characterized as "good data." Values displayed in red are not within a reasonable range for the parameter. This may mean that the instrument is malfunctioning or fouling has distorted the measurement.

* — Tide values are not characterized relative to pressure at CM1, as this station is now mounted in a floating configuration and thus rises and falls with the tides.

- - - — No data are available.

°C — degrees Celsius;  ‰ — parts-per-thousand;  db —decibars, approximately relative meters;  µMol/l — micromoles per liter;  µg/l — micrograms per liter via fluorescence at 470 nm;
S/m — Siemens per meter;  NTU — Nephelometric Turbidity Unit, not affected by Colored (Chromophoric) Dissolved Organic Matter; mg/l — milligrams per liter.

UTC is Coordinated Universal Time.  It is seven hours ahead of Pacific Daylight Time (PDT, mid-March through early November) and eight hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time (PST, early November through mid-March).
