Bottom Water Temperature collected in Real-Time from Commercial Fishing Gear in Gulf of Maine and Southern New England Shelf

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.
