Oceanographic and surface meteorological data collected from station Norrie Point weather/hydro by Hudson River Environmental Conditions Observing System (HRECOS) and assembled by Mid-Atlantic Regional Association Coastal Ocean Observing System (MARACOOS) in the Hudson River from 2008-07-09 to 2017-05-31 (NCEI Accession 0163604)

NCEI Accession 0163604 contains oceanographic and surface meteorological data collected at Norrie Point weather/hydro, a fixed station in the Hudson River. These sensors measure AIR TEMPERATURE, BAROMETRIC PRESSURE, CHLOROPHYLL, CONDUCTIVITY, DEPTH - OBSERVATION, DEWPOINT, DISSOLVED OXYGEN, INCOMING SOLAR RADIATION, LATITUDE, LONGITUDE, OXYGEN - PERCENT SATURATION, PRECIPITATION AMOUNT, RELATIVE HUMIDITY, SALINITY, WATER LEVEL, WATER TEMPERATURE, WIND DIRECTION, WIND GUST, WIND SPEED, pH and turbidity at frequent intervals in the nearshore coastal ocean. Hudson River Environmental Conditions Observing System (HRECOS) collected the data and provided the data to MARACOOS, which assembles data from Hudson River Environmental Conditions Observing System (HRECOS) and other sub-regional coastal and ocean observing systems of the Mid-Atlantic Coastal United States, submitted the data to NCEI as part of the Integrated Ocean Observing System Data Assembly Centers (IOOS DACs) Data Stewardship Program. The data are made available in netCDF formatted files, which follow the Climate and Forecast metadata convention (CF) and the Attribute Convention for Data Discovery (ACDD). Each month, NCEI adds to the Accession the data collected during the previous month.

Norrie Point is a bedrock outcropping into the main stem of the Hudson River adjacent to a cove. During the growing season (June – September), the cove is dominated by the invasive floating macrophyte Trapanatans. Norrie Point has a tidal range of 1.19 meters and has a soft silty bottom. The depth at the sampling location ranges from approximately 1.0 to 3.0 meters. YSI sondes are deployed at Norrie Point approximately 3.0 meters off the bottom in a perforated four-inch aluminum tube that is vertically mounted to a piling at the end of a dock. The datalogger contains sensors for temperature, conductivity, pH, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, chlorophyll a, and depth**. GOES telemetry equipment includes a larger solar panel and battery, a larger enclosure to house the battery, a Sutron Satlink 2 transmitter, associated GPS for time synchronization and a Yagi antenna.
