All buoy data in the NCEI archive may be downloaded through this system. Note: file sizes range from 50 Kbytes to Mbytes compressed ( Kbytes to Mbytes uncompressed). Latest data in the Buoy Data Archive is May Number of "Buoy Months" in the Archive is 56, (Updated J ) Note - two buoys and have. NCEI receives and archives meteorological data from ships at sea, moored and drifting buoys, coastal stations, rigs, and platforms. The temporal frequency of the observations range from sub-hourly to six-hourly synoptic and are global in spatial coverage. Global Marine Data (Data available beginning January 1, and ending J ). Weather buoys, like other types of weather stations, measure parameters such as air temperature above the ocean surface, wind speed (steady and gusting), barometric pressure, and wind they lie in oceans and lakes, they also measure water temperature, wave height, and dominant wave period. Raw data is processed and can be logged on board the buoy and then transmitted via radio.   The Chesapeake Bay Office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) devised a system of buoys to mark several points along the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail. These one-of-a-kind buoys are very "smart." As a apart of the NOAA's Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy System (CBIBS), these buoys are designed to.

  Observational data collected by doppler radar, radiosondes, weather satellites, buoys and other instruments are fed into computerized NWS numerical forecast models. The models use equations, along with new and past weather data, to provide forecast guidance to our meteorologists. Learn more about NOAA’s supercomputers. 6. AWIPS. The main purpose of the NOAA buoy/C-MAN network is to provide reliable, accurate, and cost-effective atmospheric and oceanic observations in support of weather forecasting, especially including the issuance of marine warnings to the general public as well as all public and private coastal interests.   This page may be used to initiate a search for prior year data for a given station.

Data buoys have been with us for decades, but the explosion in electronic sensors and digital communications of the past 30 years has accelerated their development — and their usefulness to many people, including recreational boaters. The idea of using buoys instead of moored ships to gather weather observations is nearly a century old.

  To facilitate evaluation and monitoring of numerical weather prediction model forecasts and satellite-based products against high-quality in situ observations, a data repository for collocated model forecasts, a satellite product, and in situ observations has been created under the support of various World Climate Research Program (WCRP) working groups. The loss of NOAA data buoys does not leave NWS forecasters, and the numerous other consumers of buoy data, completely without data. There are other instruments available that provide some data from the marine environment in much different fashions than moored buoys and are not intended to supplant the information currently reported by buoys. * you can select both Ocean and Met types * press ctrl and/or shift to select multiple year options * some buoys are newly placed or removed, so gaps in data may exist.
