TAO/TRITON, RAMA, and PIRATA Buoys, 5-Day, 1988-2017, ADCP

This dataset has 5-day Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) water currents data from the TAO/TRITON (Pacific Ocean, https://www.pmel.noaa.gov/gtmba/ ), RAMA (Indian Ocean, https://www.pmel.noaa.gov/gtmba/pmel-theme/indian-ocean-rama ), and PIRATA (Atlantic Ocean, https://www.pmel.noaa.gov/gtmba/pirata/ ) arrays of moored buoys which transmit oceanographic and meteorological data to shore in real-time via the Argos satellite system. These buoys are major components of the CLIVAR climate analysis project and the GOOS, GCOS, and GEOSS observing systems. 5-day data is an average of daily values collected during consecutive five day intervals. A minimum of 2 daily values are required to compute a 5-day average. ADCP data are available only after mooring recoveries, which are scheduled on an annual basis. For more information, see https://www.pmel.noaa.gov/gtmba/mission .
