Measurements Taken
Pacific Grove Shore Station

Hopkins Marine Station personnel take daily temperature measurements from a beach on the north side of Point Cabrillo just north of their main laboratory buildings. Exposed to the northwest swell as it sweeps past Point Pinos, this location is representative of coastal conditions on the south side of Monterey Bay.
