In 2012 this meteorological buoy was again deployed roughly 10 miles northeast of Duluth, about a mile offshore of the McQuade Harbor.
The focus of the research is on developing a better understanding of the thermal structure of Lake Superior,
how it varies across the lake, and how it varies from year to year.
In 2012 we began collecting the data on June 18th.
In 2011 data was collected from 12April until 09November.
In 2010 data was collected from 16June until 24November.
In 2009 data was collected from 28May until 16November.
In 2008 the buoy was on the water from 16June to 28October.
