NCEI Accession 0171455 contains oceanographic and surface meteorological data in netCDF formatted files, which follow the Climate and Forecast metadata convention (CF) and the Attribute Convention for Data Discovery (ACDD). UNCW - Coastal Ocean Research and Monitoring Program collected the data from their in-situ moored station named Sunset Nearshore (SUN 2) in the North Atlantic Ocean. Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA), which assembles data from UNCW - Coastal Ocean Research and Monitoring Program and other sub-regional coastal and ocean observing systems of the Southeast United States, submitted the data to NCEI as part of the Integrated Ocean Observing System Data Assembly Centers (IOOS DACs) Data Stewardship Program. NCEI updates this accession when new files are available.
