Surface Wave Data taken by R/Vs Kexue #1 and Shiyan #3 during the TOGA COARE Intensive Observing PeriodEntry ID: COARE_ocmix_KEXUE
Abstract: DATA ACCESS
Data are available upon request from NOAA's National Oceanographic
Data Center in Silver Spring, MD http://www.nodc.noaa.gov. The
data are also archived at the National Center for Atmospheric Research
(NCAR) in Boulder, CO http://dss.ucar.edu/pub/toga_coare/
TOGA COARE Data is also available from the and from the TOGA COARE Data
... Information System http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/coare/index.html
TOGA COARE was a multidisciplinary, international research effort that
investigated the scientific phenomena associated with the interaction
between the atmosphere and the ocean in the warm pool region of the
western Pacific. The field experiment phase of the program took place
from 1 November 1992 through 28 February 1993 and involved the
deployment of oceanographic ships and buoys, several ship and land
based Doppler radars, multiple low and high level aircraft equipped
with Doppler radar and other airborne sensors, as well as a variety of
surface based instruments for in situ observations.
1) R/V Kexue #1
During the TOGA COARE Intensive Observing Period (IOP), the PRC R/V
Kexue #1 was stationed at 4S, 156E. Wave measurements were made with
the model DR-11 Buoys (YZ-III Buoy-3 from 1 November 1992 through 23
January 1993; Buoy-U2 from 1 February 1993 through 20 February 1993).
For more information, please contact Wang Xingde at the Institute of
Oceanography in Qingdao, PRC.
2) R/V Shiyan #3
The R/V Shiyan #3 participated in TOGA COARE during the entire
Intensive Observing Period and was anchored at 2 14'S, 158 E. Surface
wave and SST data were collected from 9 November 1992 through 18
February 1993 with a DR-II type remote measurement buoy.

Sea Institute of Oceanology in Guangzhou, PRC.
