Current, meteorological, and other data from TAO buoy arrays in the equatorial Pacific Ocean from 23 February 1997 to 10 July 1998 (NODC Accession 0000617)

Current, meteorological, and other data were collected from TAO Arrays EM4,EM5,CM4,CM5,WM4,WM5 in the equatorial Pacific Ocean from 23 February 1997 to 10 July 1998. Current data contain 5 pairs of zonal and meridional current values from 10m, 25m, 45m, 80m, and 120m. Temperature data include values from 13 depths. Meteorological data include, wind speed, wind direction, air temperature, and relative humidity.

Supplemental Information
Data records:

All subsequent records. Time, date, 6 to 14 data values,
record number. The time/date in each record indicates the beginning
time for the hourly or daily average. Each velocity record contains a
pair of meridional and zonal components for every depth on the mooring
for which any valid current meter data have been recovered. Each
temperature record contains a water temperature value for every
depth for which any temperature data have been recovered. Each hourly
meteorological record contains zonal wind velocity, meridional wind
velocity, wind speed, wind direction, air temperature, and
relative humidity. Daily meteorological records contain zonal wind
velocity, meridional wind velocity, wind speed, wind direction, air
temperature, sea surface temperature and relative humidity (cm1.met)
or they contain zonal wind velocity, meridional wind velocity, wind
speed, wind direction, sea surface temperature, and relative humidity
(em1.met).
