Abstract:
PFEL provides this processed moored buoy data as a value added product for its colleagues and customers. Sources of the data are 22 different NOAA NDBC moored buoys along the North American west coast. The data has been processed from the raw hourly data files which makes the data much more user friendly, but the files are still relatively large.
