IMOS-SOOP-Air Sea Flux: Meteorological and SST Observations collected on the Research Vessel Tangaroa

This dataset contains environmental observations as well as ship parameters (such as speed and direction).

Enhancement of Measurements on Ships of Opportunity (SOOP)- Sea Surface Temperature (SST) R.V. Tangaroa collects underway meteorological and oceanographic observations in Sub-Antarctic.

Data streams are fed into the existing ship data management system, and broadcast via satellite back to New Zealand daily. The observations are quality controlled at the Bureau of Meteorology and air-sea fluxes calculated using the COARE Bulk Flux algorithm.

A daily file of 1-minute averages of the observations are generated shortly after 0000UTC and provided to eMII.

The data is contained in NetCDF format files and consists of environmental observations as well as ship parameters (such as speed and direction).
