Description:

NOAA's National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) "develops, operates, and maintains a network of buoy and C-MAN stations." After viewing the virtual tour of the NDBC's facilities and efforts, users can find interactive maps of the numerous data collecting buoys. Researchers can find recent and historical ocean current velocities, wind speed and direction, air and sea temperatures, and other oceanographic and meteorologic data. Users can search the data by buoy station and dates. Visitors can discover NDBC's programs including the Coastal Storms Initiative (CSI), which is "designed to achieve an enhanced, seamless observation-to-user capability across NOAA," and the Deep-ocean Assessment and Reporting of Tsunami (DART).
