NODC Standard Format Coastal Ocean Wave and Current (F181) Data from the Atlantic Remote Sensing Land/Ocean Experiment (ARSLOE) (1980) (NODC Accession 0014202)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This data set contains time series coastal ocean wave and current data collected during the Atlantic Remote Sensing Land/Ocean Experiment (ARSLOE). ARSLOE was sponsored jointly by the Coastal Engineering Research Center (CERC) of the US Army Corps of Engineers and the National Ocean Survey (now Service) of NOAA; it was conducted from 6 October to 30 November 1980 in the area off Duck, NC, near the CERC Field Research Facility. The data were collected using modern electronic sensors such as EM current meters, waveriders, wave staffs and pressure gauges.

Each series of measurements may include instrument type and characteristics, position, mean sea level, initial time, time span of the data sample and sampling period. Depending on the type of instrument used and data collected, data are reported in eight alternate data records. These contain: 1) EM current meter data (east and north components); 2) Baylor gauge data (water level); 3) pressure gauge data (water pressure); 4) waverider data (wave displacement); 5) wave direction buoy (wave displacement, east and north wave slope components); 6) wave spectra (co- and quadspectra); 7) wave data (angular Fourier coefficients); and 8) three-axis current meter data (east and north components). A text record is available for providing additional documentation.
