Drifting Buoy Data for the Global Ocean; Position, Surface Pressure, and Surface/Subsurface Temperature
Entry ID: MEDS_DRIBU

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Drifting Buoy (DRIBU) data have been gathered from a number of different
sensors mounted on drifting buoys. Drifting buoy data includes the buoy
position, date, time and, in most cases, includes many variables such as
surface and subsurface water temperature, air pressure, air temperature, wind
speed and wind direction.
