TAO/TRITON, RAMA, and PIRATA Buoys, Daily, 2000-present, Net Longwave Radiation

Metadata Updated: June 10, 2023

This dataset has daily Net Longwave Radiation data from the TAO/TRITON (Pacific Ocean, https://www.pmel.noaa.gov/gtmba/ ), RAMA (Indian Ocean, https://www.pmel.noaa.gov/gtmba/pmel-theme/indian-ocean-rama ), and PIRATA (Atlantic Ocean, https://www.pmel.noaa.gov/gtmba/pirata/ ) arrays of moored buoys which transmit oceanographic and meteorological data to shore in real-time via the Argos satellite system. These buoys are major components of the CLIVAR climate analysis project and the GOOS, GCOS, and GEOSS observing systems. Daily averages are computed starting at 00:00Z and are assigned an observation 'time' of 12:00Z. For more information, see https://www.pmel.noaa.gov/gtmba/mission .

Lineage This dataset has data from the TAO/TRITON, RAMA, and PIRATA projects. This dataset is a product of the TAO Project Office at NOAA/PMEL. 2022-09-02 Bob Simons at NOAA/NMFS/SWFSC/ERD (bob.simons@noaa.gov) fully refreshed ERD's copy of this dataset by downloading all of the .cdf files from the PMEL TAO FTP site. Since then, the dataset has been partially refreshed everyday by downloading and merging the latest version of the last 25 days worth of data.
