Air temperature, barometric pressure, sea surface temperature and water depth from drifting buoys in the Bali Sea, Indian Ocean and others from 1993-11-01 to 1993-12-01 (NCEI Accession 9300197)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The drifting buoy data in this accession was collected over a one month period from buoys deployed by National Data Buoy Center, Stennis Space Center, MS in TOGA Area - Pacific (30 N to 30 S). The data was collected as part of Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere project in November 1993.

This data type contains time series ocean circulation data determined by tracking the movement of drifting buoys, drogues or other instrumented devices. Movement is reported as point-to-point geographic locations determined by shore-based, surface ship, aircraft or satellite observations. Data from both ocean currents and sea ice movement can be reported in this format over time periods ranging from minutes to months. Directions and speeds between individual observations may be computed from these data and presented in graphic or summary listing form to provide information on circulation patterns and mass transport in offshore and nearshore regions.

Platform name (for platform acquiring data or deploying device), drogue characteristics, start and end positions and times, and observation frequency (if constant time interval) are reported for each series of observations. The data record comprises position, date and time for each observation. Other surface meteorological or oceanographic parameters (e.g., water temperature and salinity, air temperature and pressure, wind, waves) and subsurface data (depth, pressure, temperature) may also be reported. Text records may be used to report general comments or to describe individual drogue observations.

The water depth and other drifting buoy data submitted by Mr. Michael K. Burdette has been processed by NODC and is currently available in F156 Drifting Buoy file format.

Supplemental Information
These data files are in NODC F156 format. Documentation of this format and the codes used in this format are available in the about/ directory of this accession.

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.
