OceanSITES PIRATA daily in-situ data

This file contains daily real-time and delayed-mode in-situ data from one of the Tropical Atmosphere/Ocean (TAO)/TRITON, Pilot Research Moored Array in the Tropical Atlantic (PIRATA), or Research Moored Array for African-Asian-Australian Monsoon Analysis and Prediction (RAMA) mooring sites in the tropical oceans. Included in this file are sea temperatures from the surface to 500 meters at most sites and deeper at others, salinity and potential density (sigma-theta) at the sea surface and deeper at some sites, sea currents at 10m depth and deeper at some sites, a variety of surface observations including winds, air temperature, relative humidity, shortwave solar radiation, longwave radiation, rain rate, barometric pressure. Buoy positions are also included as time series of latitude and longitude.
