TAO/TRITON, RAMA, and PIRATA Buoys, Daily, ADCP

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

This dataset has daily Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) water currents data from the TAO/TRITON (Pacific Ocean, http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/tao/), RAMA (Indian Ocean, http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/tao/rama/), and PIRATA (Atlantic Ocean, http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/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. ADCP data are available only after mooring recoveries, which are scheduled on an annual basis. For more information, see http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/tao/proj_over/proj_over.html .
