• Oceanographic measurements from the Texas Automated Buoy System (TABS)

    The Texas Automated Buoy System contains daily oceanographic measurements from seven buoys off the Texas coast from Brownsville to Sabine. The Texas General Land Office supports this system as part of its mission to mitigate the effect of catastrophic oil spills on the Texas Coast. Buoys communicate surface currents and water temperature measured at 2m depths in near real time via cell phone and commercial satellite digital data links. Data are available within a few hours of collection, but gaps in the data may occur.
