NOAA marine environmental buoy data from the National Data Buoy Center for 2002-02 (NODC Accession 0000634)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

Wind wave spectra and meteorological data were collected from the US East/West coasts, South Pacific, Gulf of Mexico, Great Lakes and other locations. Data were collected from buoys with surface and subsurface sensors from 01 February 2002 to 28 February 2002. Data were supplied by the National Data Buoy Center (NODC).

Station identifier, position, date, time, sampling duration and sampling rate are reported for each series of measurements. Reported meteorological parameters may include air temperature and pressure, dew point, wind speed and direction, wind gust, visibility, precipitation and solar radiation. Ocean surface data may include water temperature and salinity (or conductivity), significant wave height and steepness. Subsurface temperature, salinity, conductivity, pressure, and east and north current components may also be reported. Wave data may be reported as spectral density values or (for directional spectra) as co- and quad-spectra or angular Fourier coefficients.
