In situ, meteorological, physical and profile oceanographic data were collected, including AIR TEMPERATURE, BAROMETRIC PRESSURE, CONDUCTIVITY, CURRENT DIRECTION, CURRENT SPEED, CURRENT SPEED - EAST/WEST COMPONENT (U), CURRENT SPEED - NORTH/SOUTH COMPONENT (V), CURRENT SPEED - UP/DOWN COMPONENT (W), DEPTH - OBSERVATION, HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE, INCOMING SOLAR RADIATION, LATITUDE, LONGITUDE, PRECIPITATION RATE, RELATIVE HUMIDITY, SALINITY, SIGMA-THETA, WATER TEMPERATURE, WIND DIRECTION, WIND GUST and WIND SPEED from moored buoy at the NOAA Kuroshio Extension Observatory (KEO) using ADCP, C-T recorder, CTD, CTD - moored CTD, GPS, Humidity Sensor, Temperature Sensors, anemometer, barometers, conductivity sensor, current meter, meteorological sensors, pressure sensors, pyranometer, radiometer, rain gauge, temperature probe and thermistor from 2004-06-01 to 2019-09-26. These data were provided to one of the OceanSITES Data Assembly Centers (DAC). The DAC formatted this information into the OceanSITES file format and passed it on to the Global Data Assembly Centers (GDAC).

OceanSITES is a worldwide system of long-term, open-ocean reference stations measuring dozens of variables and monitoring the full depth of the ocean from air-sea interactions down to the seafloor. It is a network of stations or observatories measuring many aspects of the ocean's surface and water column using, where possible, automated systems with advanced sensors and telecommunications systems, yielding high time resolution, often in real-time, while building a long record.
