Temperature, Salinity

Personnel of the Marine Pollution Studies Lab at Granite Canyon 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.
