OceanSITES KEO daily in-situ data

This file contains daily real-time and delayed-mode in-situ data from the Kuroshio Extension Observatory (KEO) site nominally at 32.3N,144.6E, in the Kuroshio Extension recirculation gyre. The actual anchor position is different for each deployment, and this is a slack line mooring with a watch circle radius greater than 5km. For users performing inter comparisons, it may be important to use the actual position of the buoy from the Global Positioning System (GPS) data. This mooring has been instrumented with upper ocean and surface sensors since June 2004. Included in this file are sea temperatures and pressures from the surface to 525m depth, salinity and density (sigma-theta) from the surface to 400m depth, sea currents to 35m depth, a variety of surface observations for net air-sea fluxes of heat, moisture, and momentum including winds, solar and longwave radiation, rain, air temperature, relative humidity, and barometric pressure. Note that because this is a slack-line mooring, subsurface sensor depths vary with time, and hence one must use the observed and calculated water pressures to compute sensor depths. Also, due to the relatively large scope and different anchor positions, the positions of the buoy at the surface are included as time series of latitude and longitude.
