Longitude: 66° 31.44´W
Location Description: Southeast of Caja de Muertos Island
Deployed: May 02 2016
Coast Guard Light List Letter: A
Coast Guard Light List Number 31941
Water Depth: 17 meters (56 feet)
Watch Circle Radius: 60 meters (197 feet)
Last Cell Phone Transmission: Apr 03, 11 AM AST
Last GOES Transmission: Apr 03, 10 AM AST
Latest Event:
Jan 06, 08 PM AST
Instrument reset its sampling time due to possible break in power. Instead of starting at minute 56, the doppler current profiler is now starting at minute 15 each hour.

Latest Conditions:

Click on the graph icons below to see time series plots of the listed variables. The latest conditions are in local time but all plots are in GMT(Summer EDT is 4 hours behind GMT; Winter EST is 5 hours behind GMT; Atlantic AST is always 4 hours behind GMT).

We follow the convention that depth is measure positive "down". That's why parameters like wind speed have negative depths attached to them! The latest eastward and northward subsurface currents are displayed at a subset of available depths; no plots are presently available for current velocity vectors below 2m.
