Abstract

California is known to be the Golden State due to it’s high visits for tourism, and its famous beaches; such as Malibu, Santa Monica, Huntington and many more. Upon exploring one of Southern California’s many beaches, Cabrillo Beach, discovered by Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, exhibited many unique characteristics unlike the others. According to the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, the beach is completely man made, the sand had been transported from Simi Valley and cargo boats to create the beach. Two, the port of Los Angeles is located right next door, bringing in all sorts of products from around the world. Plus, this beach is divided into three sections; outer beach, inner beach, and the rocky beach. Our main focus had become set on the varying temperatures of the water at the three different sites at Cabrillo. Asking ourselves the following questions, “How does water temperature change throughout different areas of Cabrillo Beach? How does this impact water quality and local water temperature?” As we continued to explore, we hypothesize that the inner beach and the boat launch would be much more warm than the outer beach and fishing pier throughout the day, due to LA Harbor being east of the boat launch and its boat activity.
