Oceanographic and surface meteorological data collected from station Schodack Island hydro/weather 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 2008-04-25 to 2017-05-31 (NCEI Accession 0163416)

Metadata Updated: February 7, 2018

NCEI Accession 0163416 contains oceanographic and surface meteorological data collected at Schodack Island hydro/weather, a fixed station in the Hudson River. These sensors measure AIR TEMPERATURE, BAROMETRIC PRESSURE, CONDUCTIVITY, DEPTH - OBSERVATION, DEWPOINT, DISSOLVED OXYGEN, INCOMING SOLAR RADIATION, LATITUDE, LONGITUDE, OXYGEN - PERCENT SATURATION, PRECIPITATION AMOUNT, RELATIVE HUMIDITY, 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 hydrologic site for Schodack Island is immediately south of the Schodack Island State Park boat launch and the instrument housing is fixed to the steel bulkhead. Sensors on a YSI 6600V2 report Acidity, Dissolved Oxygen (% saturation and mg/L), Specific Conductance, Turbidity, Water Temperature, Water Level. The meteorological instrumentation is on a small island just west of Schodack Island State Park and just south of the I-90 by-pass bridge. All sensors are attached to the tower holding the navigation aids (marker # 197), with the exception of the barometer, which is onshore as part of the Schodack Island Hydrologic Station. The island is at least 130 m from either shore so there is no interference from nearby vegetation or ridgelines. Meteorological sensors report the following parameters every 15 minutes: air temperature, barometric pressure, radiation (PAR), precipitation, relative humidity, wind speed, direction & gusts.
