Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Oceanographic and surface meteorological data collected from station DISL-BSCA by Dauphin Island Sea Lab (DISL) and assembled by Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing System (GCOOS) in the Coastal Waters of Alabama and Gulf of Mexico from 2010-09-01 to 2023-03-31 (NCEI Accession 0163204)

This dataset contains oceanographic and surface meteorological data in netCDF formatted files, which follow the Climate and Forecast metadata convention (CF) and the Attribute Convention for Data Discovery (ACDD). Dauphin Island Sea Lab (DISL) collected the data from their in-situ moored station DISL-BSCA, Station Bon Secour, LA (BSCA1), in the Coastal Waters of Alabama and Gulf of Mexico. GCOOS, which assembles data from Dauphin Island Sea Lab (DISL) and other sub-regional coastal and ocean observing systems of the Gulf of Mexico coastal United States, submitted the data to NCEI as part of the Integrated Ocean Observing System Data Assembly Centers (IOOS DACs) Data Stewardship Program.
