Each morning, Santa Barbara Harbor Patrol personnel record the surface water temperature from their boat dock at the west end of the harbor. The harbor enjoys good tidal circulation and the sample is taken before the sun can exert a warming effect, so these temperatures should be representative of the coastal waters.
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
