Oil Industry Meteorological Buoys Data



The 2010 Met Buoy Data, Klondike Study Area, NE Chukchi Sea dataset contains meteorological data collected for ConocoPhillips and Statoil on two buoys moored in the Northeastern (NE) Chukchi Sea during the open water season, July to September 2010. The buoys were located within the Klondike study area, a 30 x 30 nautical mile region that is located in the Chukchi Sea outer continental shelf oil and gas lease area. Met buoy data parameters include wind direction, wind speed, maximum wind speed, air temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, water temperature, significant wave and maximum wave heights, wave period, current speed and direction, and the voltage of the battery used to operate the meteorological instrumentation on the buoy.

These data are part of a multi-year baseline environmental studies data set collected as part of the permitting process prior to drilling exploration wells. This dataset is part of the Pacific Marine Arctic Regional Synthesis (PacMARS) Project.

This dataset contains the original CSV files, metadata files, and shapefiles in ZIP files.
