Current Deployment Data for Buoy I0103, Instrument doppler

There are no dopplers in the I0103 deployment.

Available Historical Data for Buoy Location I01, Instrument doppler

Listings below include NetCDF, MATLAB binary, and possibly CSV files (suitable for Excel users). The NetCDF and MATLAB files are basically equivalent, but the CSV has just about all of the metadata stripped out of it, and will not contain any multidimensional time variables. NetCDF is used for the base data archival system, and in fact the MATLAB and CSV files are generated from NetCDF.

Historical files are created from the best data from the cell phone, GOES, and post-recovery data streams. Post-recovery data is what we get directly from the instrument - when possible - after a deployment has ended.

The NetCDF and MATLAB files contain temperature retrieved after the mooring has been recovered. Temperature is not telemetered in real-time.

NetCDF Software and Documentation

23 May 2006: Time convention changed in netCDF files to modified Julian date (MJD) instead of Julian date. MJD starts at 1858-11-17 00:00:00. See for further information. To convert from our old Julian date to MJD: MJD=JD-2400001.0. For Matlab users, see julian.m or gregorian.m to convert to/from MJD.

Problems with the Matlab Web Interface may cause problems saving the data as Matlab files. If you run into a problem, try saving the data as CSV or use the NetCDF file. We are presently working on the problem and hope to have it solved in the near future. Please contact for further information or assistance.
