Surface In-Situ Networks
Dauphin Island Sea Lab and the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program have partnered with the University of South Alabama, the Alabama Department of Conservation, State Land Division, Coastal Program, the Environmental Protection Agency's Gulf of Mexico Program and the Alabama Lighthouse Association to provide real-time data on wind speed, wind direction, air temperature, barometric pressure, photosynthetically active radiation, precipitation, water temperature, dissolved oxygen, water height, and salinity at three sites located on a N-S transect through Mobile Bay. Stations are located at Meaher Park (30° 40.028' N, 87° 56.188' W), Middle Bay Light (30° 26.2' N, 88° 00.7' W), and Dauphin Island Sea Lab (30° 15.075' N, 88° 04.670' W). Near real-time data are available in a user-friendly format at www.mymobilebay.com. Informative pop-ups describe each parameter and graphs of each may be displayed for the visitor to the website. Researchers may upload the data in a spreadsheet format for further analysis.
