Wind direction and other data from the Utukok River and other locations from fixed platforms as part of the Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP) from 1982-07-27 to 1982-08-30 (NODC Accession 8300064)

Wind direction and other data were collected from the Utukok River and other locations from fixed platforms from 27 July 1982 to 30 August 1982. Data were collected by Tetra Tech Inc. as part of the Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP). Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard F101 Ocean Wind Time Series from Buoys format. Full format description is available from NODC at www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-Archive/f101.html. An analog file for this accession is available from NODC user services.

The F101 format is used for 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. Position, platform type and height, and instrument elevation are reported for each station. The data record comprises values of east-west (u) and north-south (v) wind components at specified date and time. Wind values may be subject to averaging or filtering and are typically reported at time intervals of 10-15 minutes. Air temperature, atmospheric pressure, and dewpoint temperature may also be reported.

Supplemental Information
These data files are in NODC F101 format. This format is described at

Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database
maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The
design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content
Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information
accurately represents all available information from the legacy database
at the time that this description was created. However, proper
attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or
collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact
mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this
uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the
Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.

To develop more accurate metadata, the NODC reviews metadata for all
accessions on an ongoing basis.
