Summary
Abstract: Time-series oceanographic data for the Gulf of Mexico (Alabama coast) collected
by the USGS or used in conjunction with USGS projects. These data are stored as
NetCDF files using conventions developed by NOAA's Pacific Marine Environmental
Laboratory (PMEL) lab to be compatible with their EPIC system. The hourly data
is available online through the USGS Coastal Marine Time Series Browser
"http://stellwagen.er.usgs.gov/". Variables include current, temperature,
pressure, conductivity, light transmission (beam attenuation) and others.

Available data sets for the Gulf of Mexico:

Chandeleur Islands (Jul - Nov 2010)
* Deep Reef (May 2001)
* Lake Ponchartrain (Mar-Jul 1995)
* Mobile Bay (Apr-Jul 1990; May 1991 - May 1992)
