NODC Standard Format Ocean Wind Time Series from Buoys (F101) Data (1975-1985) (NODC Accession 0014194)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This file type contains time series measurements of wind and other surface meteorological parameters taken at fixed locations. The instrument arrays may be deployed on automated buoys, ships, or towers. The data record includes values of east-west (u) and north-south (v) wind components at specified date and time. Wind values may have been averaged or filtered and are typically reported at time intervals of 10-15 minutes. Air temperature, atmospheric pressure, and dew point temperatures may also be reported. Data were primarily collected in coastal Alaska and Puget Sound, but measurements from a few specific equatorial Pacific Ocean and Atlantic Ocean sites are also available.
