Title: Massachusetts Coastal Marine Time Series Data Held by the USGS
Description:
Abstract:
Time-series oceanographic data for the coast of Massachusetts 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 coast of Massachusetts: * Buzzards Bay (Jul 1982 - Oct 1985) * Cape Cod Bay (Feb 1986 - Apr 1986) * Cape Cod Misc (Jul-Aug 1980) * Long Term Observations (MWRA) (Jan 1990 - Present) * Massachusetts Bay Circulation Experiment (Sep 1990 - Jun 1991) * Massachusetts Bay Internal Wave Experiment (Aug-Sep 1998) * Stellwagen Bank (Feb 1994 - Apr 1995) * Western Massachusetts Bay (Jan-May 1987)
