Wind wave spectra data from moored current meter and bottle casts in the Gulf of Mexico as part of the Brine Disposal project, 1978-10-01 to 1980-10-01 (NODC Accession 8000619)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Wind wave spectra data were collected using moored current meter and moored buoy casts in the Gulf of Mexico from October 1, 1980 to October 1, 1980. Data were submitted by National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) as part of the Brine Disposal project. Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard Wind Wave Spectra Data (F191) format. Full wind wave spectra descriptions are available at http://www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-Archive/f191.html.

The F191 format is used to report meteorological data and ocean wave spectra data from NDBC. 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). 3) Report time series frequency, density and resolution of waves. Each record is 120 characters in length, sorted by station and record type. The first nine columns for all records are to be used for file type (columns 1-3) and file identifier (column 4-9). The file identifier, to be assigned by the originator, is an unique originator id for each data submission. After submission, the NODC reassigns to this field an unique NODC identifier for internal use.
