WIND DIRECTION and Other Data from FIXED PLATFORM and Other Platforms From TOGA Area - Pacific (30 N to 30 S) from 1983-10-24 to 1985-06-19 (NCEI Accession 8700400)

Metadata Updated: March 12, 2021

Meteorological data collected by WHOI as recorded by instrument moorings in the Tropical Pacific, near the Equator, from October 1983 thru June 1985. The project was named "tropic heat" and no nodc project code was assigned. The parameters recorded include vector averaged wind speed and direction, air/sea temperatures, insolation, barometric pressure and relative humidity. Certain parameters were extracted and put into NODC's format F101.
