Drifting and moored buoy data observed during 2015 and assembled by the Global Data Assembly Center for Drifting Buoy Data (formerly Responsible National Oceanographic Data Center (RNODC)), Canada (NCEI Accession 0156004)

Buoy data is available in real time to platform operators via telecommunications providers and distributed on the Global Telecommunications System (GTS) of the World Meteorological Organization in real-time.

As a Global Data Assembly Center for Drifting Buoy Data, DFO OSB MEDS (pka ISDM, OSD, OSB) decodes data transmitted on the GTS in buoy code form. This includes moored buoy data as well.

This is OSB MEDS's annual submission of such data to the U.S. NCEI. This dataset should not be considered as complete since several buoys failed to report BUOY (TAC FM-18) messages in 2015. Another dataset will be submitted when the BUFR data from 2015 is recovered, selected and formatted.
