Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Oceanographic and surface meteorological data collected from station PR1 (CarICOOS Data Buoy A) by University of Maine and assembled by the Caribbean Coastal Ocean Observing System (CARICOOS) in the Caribbean Sea from 2009-06-09 to 2020-10-14 (NCEI Accession 0163740)

NCEI Accession 0163740 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). University of Maine collected the data from their in-situ moored station named PR1 (CarICOOS Data Buoy A) in the Caribbean Sea. CARICOOS, which assembles data from University of Maine and other sub-regional coastal and ocean observing systems of the Caribbean Coastal United States, submitted the data to NCEI as part of the Integrated Ocean Observing System Data Assembly Centers (IOOS DACs) Data Stewardship Program. NCEI updates this accession when new files are available.
