Drifting buoy and other data from the Bering Sea as part of the Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP) from 13 September 1975 to 25 September 1975 (NODC Accession 7600632)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

Drifting buoy data was collected from the Bering Sea by the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) as part of the Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program (OCSEAP). Data were collected from 13 September 1975 to 25 September 1975. Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard F156 Drifting Buoy Data format. Full format description is available from NODC at www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-Archive/f156.html. An analog file for this accession is available from NODC user service.

The F156 format is used for time series data on ocean circulation determined by the tracking of drifting buoys, drogues, or other instrumented devices as they are carried with the flow. 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 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 near- shore 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 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.
