Oceanographic and surface meteorological data collected from station Port of Albany weather/hydro by Hudson River Environmental Conditions Observing System (HRECOS) and assembled by Mid-Atlantic Regional Association Coastal Ocean Observing System (MARACOOS) in the Hudson River from 2011-01-04 to 2017-07-31 (NCEI Accession 0163364)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

NCEI Accession 0163364 contains oceanographic and surface meteorological data collected at Port of Albany weather/hydro, a fixed station in the Hudson River. These sensors measure AIR TEMPERATURE, BAROMETRIC PRESSURE, CHLOROPHYLL, CONDUCTIVITY, DEPTH - OBSERVATION, DEWPOINT, DISSOLVED OXYGEN, INCOMING SOLAR RADIATION, LATITUDE, LONGITUDE, OXYGEN - PERCENT SATURATION, PRECIPITATION AMOUNT, RELATIVE HUMIDITY, SALINITY, WATER LEVEL, WATER TEMPERATURE, WIND DIRECTION, WIND GUST, WIND SPEED, pH and turbidity at frequent intervals in the nearshore coastal ocean. Hudson River Environmental Conditions Observing System (HRECOS) collected the data and provided the data to MARACOOS, which assembles data from Hudson River Environmental Conditions Observing System (HRECOS) and other sub-regional coastal and ocean observing systems of the Mid-Atlantic Coastal United States, submitted the data to NCEI as part of the Integrated Ocean Observing System Data Assembly Centers (IOOS DACs) Data Stewardship Program. The data are made available in netCDF formatted files, which follow the Climate and Forecast metadata convention (CF) and the Attribute Convention for Data Discovery (ACDD). Each month, NCEI adds to the Accession the data collected during the previous month.

The Albany HRECOS Meteorological station began reporting on January 4th, 2011. It is mounted on the concrete bulkhead on the western shoreline of the Hudson River at the Port of Albany, just to the south of the Cargill Granary. Its coordinates are 42.61954 N, 73.75890 W. Sensors are installed on a 10’ tower that is above nearby vegetation and over one hundred feet from nearby structures. Data is reported to a CR1000 datalogger, then to a nearby computer (~1000 m) via a 900 MHz spread spectrum radio. The Albany HRECOS hydrologic station is mounted on the concrete piling on the western shoreline of the Hudson River at the Port of Albany, just to the south of the Cargill Grainery. The channel depth at this location is 32 feet. All parameters are measured using a YSI 6600V2 sonde, except for water elevation/depth (elevation calculations began on 11/28/2011, when sensor was surveyed to NAVD88), which is measured by an OTT bubbler sensor. The YSI 6600 sonde at this site reports the following parameters via a CR1000 datalogger every 15 minutes: acidity, dissolved oxygen (% saturation and mg/L), specific conductance, turbidity, and water temperature (see the section titled “Sensor Specifications” for more information). *Chlorophyll measurements ended 12/12/2011 when it was decided that data from this sensor were not informative.
