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). Moss Landing Marine Laboratory collected the data from their in-situ Monterey Bay Commercial Wharf station in the Northeast Pacific Ocean. Central and Northern California Coastal Ocean Observing System (CeNCOOS), which assembles data from Moss Landing Marine Laboratory and other sub-regional coastal and ocean observing systems of the Central and Northern California 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 dataset when new files are available.

Supplemental Information
The IOOS vocabulary of oceanographic and meteorological parameters is at http://mmisw.org/ont/ioos/parameter. The mapping of this vocabulary to the CF standard names vocabulary is at http://mmisw.org/ont/ioos/map_ioos_cf. The netCDF data files in this dataset use both vocabularies.
Purpose This dataset is available to the public for a wide variety of uses including scientific research and analysis.
