Manual Shore Stations



Latitude:36° 25.92’ N
Longitude:121° 55.02’ W
Operational since March 1971
Measurements Taken
Granite Canyon Shore Station

Personnel of the Marine Pollution Studies Laboratory take daily temperature and salinity samples off the rocks near the water intake for the laboratory, and return the salinity samples to Scripps once a month for analysis. This sampling site is considered to be a good representative of the spring-summer upwelling that is typical of the central California coast.

Please note: manual shore station data is updated periodically, not continuously. As a result, the SCCOOS data repository may lag behind the actual data collection. Thank you for your patience.
Special thanks to the SIO Manual Shore Stations program for providing data and information about these studies. For further information, please visit the SIO Manual Shore Stations website at http://shorestation.ucsd.edu
