DYCOMS-II Surface: Tanner Banks Buoy Meteorological and Spectral Wave Data


The Tanner Banks Buoy Meteorological and Spectral Wave Data is one of several surface data sets collected by the National Center For Atmospheric Research/Earth Observing Laboratory (NCAR/EOL) as part of the Dynamics and Chemistry of Marine Stratocumulus Phase II: Entrainment Studies (DYCOMS-II) project. Included in the data set are hourly observations of meteorological parameters, 10 min observations of wind parameters, and hourly observations of wave parameters for the Tanner Banks buoy (WMO 46047) located off the California coast. The data cover the period from 7 - 28 July 2001. The data were acquired from the National Data Buoy Center (NDBC).
