Alabama Near Coastal Meteorological & Hydrographic Continuous Data Sampling from 2003 to present

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

The Alabama Real-time Coastal Observing System (ARCOS) with support of the Dauphin Island Sea Lab is a network of continuously sampling observing stations that collect observations of meteorological and hydrographic data from fixed stations operating across coastal Alabama. Data were collected from 2003 through the present and include parameters such as air temperature, relative humidity, solar and quantum radiation, barometric pressure, wind speed, wind direction, precipitation amounts, water temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, water height, and other water quality data. Stations, when possible, are designed to collect the same data in the same way, though there are exceptions given unique location needs (see individual accession abstracts for details). Stations are strategically placed to sample across salinity gradients, from delta to offshore, and the width of the coast.
