The Shore Stations Program consists of 10 active stations along the California Coastline

Data from the Shore Stations Program consists of daily, manual measurements of surface temperature and salinity from the ten active stations. Six of the 10 stations take both daily temperature and salinity measurements (La Jolla/Scripps Pier,  San Clemente, Newport Beach, Granite Canyon, Farallon Islands, and Trinidad Beach).  The remaining four stations (Point Dume/Zuma Beach, Santa Barbara, Pacific Grove, and Trinidad Bay) take only daily temperature measurements. These data are available in excel and csv spreadsheet formats through the UC San Diego Library Digital Collections.
