Abstract

Dataset contains bottom temperature data from both fixed and mobile gear types (e.g. traps, trawlers, scallopers, long-liners) in the Gulf of Maine and the South New England Bight. The time series begins in 2015 and runs in real-time until today. The water depths range from 1- 900 meters. The variability associated with tidal, wind, seasonal, and inter-annual processes can be depicted at nearly all sites in this multi-year time series. This data was collected as part of the Environmental Monitors on Lobster Traps (eMOLT) project - a non-profit collaboration of industry, science and academics devoted to the monitoring of the physical environment of the Gulf of Maine and the Southern New England Shelf.
