TAO/TRITON, RAMA, and PIRATA Buoys, Quarterly, Heat Content

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

This dataset has quarterly Heat Content 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. Quarterly data is an average of monthly values collected during a 3 month period. A minimum of 2 monthly values are required to compute a quarterly average. This dataset contains realtime and delayed mode data (see the source variable). For more information, see http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/tao/proj_over/proj_over.html .
