Title: TOGA/WOCE Lagrangian Drifting Buoy Data; from NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meterological Laboratory
Description:
Abstract:
NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) manages the deployment of drifting buoys around the world to monitor ocean circulation and provide ground-truth sea surface temperature measurement. Data are stored in AOML's Drifting Buoy Data Assembly Center (DAC) and are distributed via the Global Telecommunications System (GTS) for operational weather and climate prediction. The Annual Mean Velocity Estimates include: Mean Velocity Estimates Variances about the Mean Velocity Estimates NPT Plots NPT Contour Plots Postscript files available for download Selected maps can be viewed/downloaded online. Data are quality-controlled to provide a uniform, global data set of SST and surface velocity. [This summary was adapted from the NOAA/AOML/PHOD/DAC web pages.]
