Abstract: Time-series oceanographic data for the Northeast Atlantic outer continental shelf, Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank 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.
