Annual temperature signals

These graphs show time series of temperature as a function of depth. Temperature was recorded by Seacats and VMCMs moored 5 m below the sea surface and 10 m above the sea floor, and by thermistors and Seabird temperature cells mounted 1 m above the sea floor on USGS tripod systems. Sea surface temperature is from the National Data Buoy Center installation on the large navigational buoy. The data are hour-averaged.
