Wave spectra, meteorological, and other data from NOAA Ship FERREL from 1982-05-17 to 1982-08-12 (NODC Accession 8500123)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Wave spectra, meteorological, and other data were collected from NOAA Ship FERREL. Data were collected by the National Ocean Service (NOS) from 17 May 1982 to 12 August 1982. Data has been processed by NODC to the standard NODC F191-Meteorology and Wave Spectra format. Data in this accession do not completely conform to the F191 format. Full format descriptions are available from NODC homepage at http://www.noaa.nodc.gov/.

The F191 format is used to report meteorological data and ocean wave spectra data from NDBO. The format contains seven data record types to: 1) identify the buoy for position, duration, rate of sampling and heading, 2) identify the meteorological parameters, (temperature, pressure, weather, solar radiation, and surface waves), and 3) report time times series frequency, density and resolution of waves. Each record is 120 characters in length, sorted by station and record type.
