Coastal-Marine Automated Network Station and Buoy Reports and Summaries CD-ROMEntry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00460
Abstract: Coastal-Marine Automated Network Station and Buoy Reports and Summaries is a CD-ROM that was produced jointly by the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) and the National Data Buoy Center (NDBC). It is available from NCDC. This two-volume set contains climatic summaries and archived observations measured by NDBC moored buoys and Coastal-Marine Automated Network (C-MAN) stations for 197 sites. The ... geographic area covered is most of the U.S. coastline, plus a few additional areas. Period of record is generally a 3-20 year period, depending on the station, and ends with December 1993. The set consists of archived observations and climatic summary tables. All measurements are included except spectral wave and subsurface. A map shows station locations, and data inventories show measurements and time periods, for each station. The following elements are summarized: monthly frequency distributions of wind speed, wind gust, sea level pressure, air and sea temperature, air-sea temperature difference, dew point (where available), significant wave height, and average and dominant wave period. Additional tables include: wind speed versus direction, significant wave height versus dominant and average wave periods, significant wave height versus wind speed. The individual monthly means and extremes for all measurements are included. Stations with less than 3 years of data will have only individual monthly means and extremes summarized. This item is sold only as a set.
Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
