Active Marine Station Metadata

The Active Marine Station Metadata is a daily metadata report for active marine bouy and C-MAN (Coastal Marine Automated Network) platforms from the National Data Buoy Center (NDBC). Metadata includes the station id, latitude/longitude (resolution to thousandths of a degree), the station name, the station owner, the program the station is associated with (e.g., TAO, NDBC, tsunami, NOS, etc.), station type (e.g., buoy, fixed, oil rig, etc.), notification if the station observes meteorology, currents, and water quality (signified by 'y' for yes and 'n' for no). If there is a 'y' associated with one of these tags, then the station has reported data in that category within the last 8 hours (or 24 hours for DART stations--Deep-Ocean Assessment Reporting of Tsunamis). If there is an 'n', data has not been received within those times. Stations are removed from the list when they are dismantled. The metadata information is written to a daily XML-formatted file.
