POOLC (47.679933 N, 55.43001667 W): is a water temperature and pressure gauge located in Pool's Cove, Fortune Bay. The station is equipped with an Seametrics INW PT12 pressure/temperature sensor. The sensor is connected to a SUTRON Satlink2-V2 which collect 1 min average values (from a 1 Hz internal sampling) logged every 10 min and transmitted via an Omni-directional GOES antenna every hour. The station is installed on a wharf and the sensor is moored at about 3 m depth from mean sea level.
