This dataset contains Sea Surface Temperature (SST) underway observations collected on trips of a ferry (MV Sea Flyte - VHW5167) between Hillarys Boat Harbour and Rottnest Island (Western Australia).
The trips take place several times a day. The data are averaged to 1-minute from the original 7 to 15 seconds sampling interval. The data have been quality controlled by the Bureau of Meteorology.
Data are made available through IMOS approx 24 hours after collection.
Enhancement of Measurements on Ships of Opportunity (SOOP)-Sea Surface Temperature (SST) aims to supply near real-time SST data (within 24 hours) from SOOPs and research vessels in the Australian region.
