Meteorological and Oceanographic Data from the Gulf Offshore Weather Observing Network (GOWON) (F192)
Entry ID: FW00243

Abstract: This data type contains time series of meteorological and ocean wave
data measured by instruments deployed on offshore oil rigs in the Gulf
of Mexico in 1981-1982. The data were collected as part of a cooperative
program between the NOAA National Weather Service and participating oil
companies. A station identifier, position and instrument altitude are
reported for each series of observations. The data record comprises
date, time, and measured parameters that may include: air temperature
and pressure; wind direction, speed, and gust; significant wave height,
maximum wave height and wave period; and water level.
