Water Temperature Monitoring

Updated by Kurt Kivell - June 8th at 4:10pm

Each year, coastal sites located across the Saugeen Ojibway Nation’s Territorial Waters are selected for installation of temperature monitoring loggers. Most selected locations coincide with nearshore fish and/or larval fish sampling and coastal vegetation sites.

Temperature monitoring is completed using HOBO Tidbit temperature loggers and installed at bottom depth using a cinder block, for the duration of the sampling period (May – October).

In 2020, the Coastal Waters Monitoring Program deployed 17 temperature loggers in the lake throughout the winter to collect a winter temperature data set.
