attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String The International Arctic Buoy Programme (IABP) maintais a network of data buoys in the entire Arctic Ocean to provide meteorological, sea ice and oceanographic data for real-time operational requirements and research purposes. Buoy data files are updated daily. Values provided are confined to surface temperature, atmospheric temperature, and barometric pressure when these values are available. All buoy files contain at least a date and position. Buoys that are no longer reporting remain available. PolarWatch harvests these data from See the IABP web page for more information

attribute surface_temp comment String Surface Temperature (Ts) is measured from the bottom of the buoy hull. If the buoy is floating, then the reported temperature is of the sea surface. If the buoy is frozen into the ice, or sitting on top of it, then the reported temperature is of the ground or ice. The freezing temperature of sea water is about -1.8C, so temperature readings below this indicate ground or ice temperatures
