Ocean Wind Time Series from Buoys (F101) Data (1976 -1984), Pacific Ocean
Entry ID: FW00095

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This file type contains time series measurements of wind and other
surface meteorological parameters taken at fixed locations. The
instrument arrays may be deployed on automated buoys, ships, or towers.
The data record includes values of east-west (u) and north-south (v)
wind components at specified date and time. Wind values may have been
averaged or filtered and are typically reported at time intervals of
10-15 minutes. Air temperature, atmospheric pressure, and dew point
temperatures may also be reported. Data were primarily collected in
coastal Alaska and Puget Sound, but measurements from a few specific
equatorial Pacific Ocean and Atlantic Ocean sites are also available.
