Data Identification
Abstract: The Texas Automated Buoy System contains daily oceanographic measurements from seven buoys off the Texas coast from Brownsville to Sabine. The Texas General Land Office supports this system as part of its mission to mitigate the effect of catastrophic oil spills on the Texas Coast. Buoys communicate surface currents and water temperature measured at 2m depths in near real time via cell phone and commercial satellite digital data links. Data are available within a few hours of collection, but gaps in the data may occur.
Purpose: The National Centers for Environmental Information accesses this database hourly to get the latest information from observational buoys in the Gulf of Mexico. This information is being made available in the near realtime application of the Harmful Algal Blooms Observing System as an environmental data layer that may affect the spread of these blooms.
