summary: Directional wave and sea surface temperature measurements collected in situ by Datawell buoys. Only the 'historic' ARCHIVE datasets exclude bad data. The REALTIME datasets and all the single-deployment ARCHIVE datasets include bad data, with the qc 'Flag' variables appropriately set; it is up to users to mask off bad values as needed.
Various buoys are sponsored by: Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), National Weather Service (NWS), Coastal Observing Research and Development Center (CORDC), Central and Northern California Ocean Observing System (CENCOOS), Applied Physics Laboratory of the University of Washington (UW-APL), US Army Corps of Engineers(USACE) (sponsor)
