Moored buoys are the weather\nsentinels of the sea. They are deployed in the coastal and offshore waters\nfrom the western Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean around Hawaii, and from the\nBering Sea to the South Pacific. NDBC's moored buoys measure and transmit\nbarometric pressure; wind direction, speed, and gust; air and sea\ntemperature; and wave energy spectra from which significant wave height,\ndominant wave period, and average wave period are derived. Even the\ndirection of wave propagation is measured on many moored buoys. See\n for a description of the measurements.\n\nThe source data from NOAA NDBC has different column names, different units,\nand different missing values in different files, and other problems\n(notably, lots of rows with duplicate or different values for the same time\npoint). This dataset is a standardized, reformatted, and lightly edited\nversion of that source data, created by NOAA NMFS SWFSC ERD (email:\ at Before 2020-01-29, this dataset only had the data\nthat was closest to a given hour, rounded to the nearest hour. Now, this\ndataset has all of the data available from NDBC with the original time\nvalues. If there are multiple source rows for a given buoy for a given\ntime, only the row with the most non-NaN data values is kept. If there is\na gap in the data, a row of missing values is inserted (which causes a nice\ngap when the data is graphed). Also, some impossible data values are\nremoved, but this data is not perfectly clean. This dataset is now updated\nevery 5 minutes.\n\nThis dataset has both historical data (quality controlled, before\n2022-10-01T00:00:00Z) and near real time data (less quality controlled,\nwhich may change at any time, from 2022-10-01T00:00:00Z on).\n\ncdm_data_type = TimeSeries\nVARIABLES:\nstation (Station Identifier)\n...

Each data variable's metadata includes a qcindex attribute which indicates a character number in the flag data.  ALWAYS check the flag data for each row of data to see which data is good (flag='Z') and which data isn't.  For example, to extract just data where time (qcindex=1), latitude (qcindex=2), longitude (qcindex=3), and airTemperature (qcindex=12) are 'good' data, include this constraint in your ERDDAP query:\n flag=~\"ZZZ........Z.*\"\nin your query.\n'=~' indicates this is a regular expression constraint.\nThe 'Z's are literal characters.  In this dataset, 'Z' indicates 'good' data.\nThe '.'s say to match any character.\nThe '*' says to match the previous character 0 or more times.\n(Don't include backslashes in your query.)\nSee the tutorial for regular expressions at\n\n\ncdm_data_type = Trajectory\nVARIABLES:\nID (Call Sign)\nsite (Ship Name)\nIMO\ncruise_id\nexpocode\nfacility\nplatform\nplatform_version\ntime (seconds since 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z)\nlatitude (degrees_north)\nlongitude (degrees_east)\n...
