Drifting buoy data from SVP Drifting Argos Buoys, deployed by the NOAA Coral Reef Ecosystems Division (CRED) near American Samoa, 2002-2006 (NCEI Accession 0067474)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This data collection includes data from multiple SVP drifters deployed in the region of American Samoa to assess ocean currents and sea surface temperature. Drifter data files contain drifter ids, year, month, day, hour, minute, second, GPS latitude and longitude. Drifter data was collected hourly. All dates and times are UTC. Contact Coral Reef Ecosystem Division (CRED), NOAA Pacific Island Fisheries Science Center for more information.

These data were collected for coral reef ecosystem research. They are collected concurrently with ecological/biological reef assessments and monitoring data.
