Oceanographic and surface meteorological data collected from station Pier 26 Weather/Hydro Station 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 2017-03-29 to 2017-05-31 (NCEI Accession 0163605)

NCEI Accession 0163605 contains oceanographic and surface meteorological data collected at Pier 26 Weather/Hydro Station, a fixed station in the Hudson River. These sensors measure AIR TEMPERATURE, BAROMETRIC PRESSURE, CONDUCTIVITY, DEPTH - OBSERVATION, DEWPOINT, DISSOLVED OXYGEN, LATITUDE, LONGITUDE, OXYGEN - PERCENT SATURATION, PRECIPITATION AMOUNT, RELATIVE HUMIDITY, SALINITY, 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.

The purpose of the Hudson River Park Pier 26 station is to generate a consistent and precise stream of weather data to the general public and interested stakeholders. The goal in collecting this data is to ultimately inform Hudson River management policies, restoration efforts, and extreme event planning. This station was selected due to its location near the NYC Harbor and in lower Manhattan, one of the world’s most heavily developed and densely populated urban environments.
