      Temperature data were recorded on two HOBO Water Temp Pro v2 U22 temperature loggers (Onset Computer Corporation). These loggers were deployed at depths of 5 metres and 10 metres, on 18/02/2012 and 15/03/2012 respectively. They were attached to steel rods driven into cracks in a undersea rock wall off the northern coast of Baudisson Island in New Ireland Province, Papua New Guinea. The data consists of temperature measurements (to the nearest 0.001 degrees C), recorded at 30 minute intervals, until the 20/07/2014. These data were collected to contribute to Dr. Ian McLeod's PhD doctorate.
