        abstract:  This accession contains oceanographic and meteorological data collected from National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) Coastal-Marine Automated Network (C-MAN) stations. Data are in both NODC F291 and netCDF formats. C-MAN station data typically include barometric pressure, wind direction, speed and gust, and air temperature; however, some C-MAN stations are equipped to also measure seawater temperature, water level, waves, and relative humidity. NDBC established the C-MAN for the National Weather Service in the early 1980's. NDBC has installed approximately 50 C-MAN stations on lighthouses, at capes and beaches, on near shore islands, and on offshore platforms. NDBC has deployed over 100 moored (a.k.a., weather) buoys in coastal and offshore waters from the western Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean around Hawaii, and from the Bering Sea to the South Pacific. (This accession contains data from NDBC C-MAN stations that were operational prior to the inception of the C-MAN network.)
        purpose:  The purpose of collecting this data set is to respond to the need for recorded continuous meteorological and oceanographic observations in the US coastal areas.
