The CMS is deploying an array of underwater temperature loggers to study oceanographic phenomena off our coast. This project is conducted entirely by volunteers. To hasten the construction of the array, the CMS is seeking donors and site managers for its Adopt-A-Thermograph program. These sponsors will extend and complete the Continental Thermograph Array that is currently under development.

Participants will donate the minimum cost for a single thermograph setup, currently totaling $150. The Catalina Marine Society will supply the sensors and associated mounting hardware and will perform QA and calibration procedures on the sensors before they are deployed and when they are retrieved. The sponsors, if they desire, may also be the site manager, providing the resources for deploying and retrieving the thermograph, or have the CMS arrange for the diving.
The Adopt-A-Thermograph is directed by David Tsao. For more details, contact David at david@catalinamarinesociety.org.

We will have the gear exhibited at the SCUBA Show, booth #808. Come by and say hi and learn what we have learned from our temperature studies.
