U.S. Geological Survey Oceanographic Time-Series Data Collection of measurements of current velocity, temperature, pressure and other data made in U.S. coastal waters between 1975 and present

This collection includes time-series oceanographic data collected by U.S. Geological Survey investigators and collaborators as part of experiments to study circulation and sediment transport in the coastal ocean. The experiments were typically one month to several years long and were carried out between 1975 and the present. Measurements include current velocity, temperature, pressure, conductivity, light transmission (beam attenuation) among others. The experiments often focused on observations near the sea floor, but most also obtained some data in the water column. Data are provided at the fastest instrument sampling interval and often as hourly averages. Experiments longer than a few months may entail multiple, sequential instrument deployments; the data for these experiments are available as separate records.
