August 2010: We are pleased to announce an advanced version of our data availability tool. We have added the option to select data by type, tower, date, and available variables.
This page provides user access to quality-controlled meteorological data from towers in the the northern Gulf of Mexico. Files available for download are in netCDF format and start with the original deployment on K-tower in August 2008. Both preliminary and intermediate files are available, each with automated quality control flags applied. The intermediate files are best for most applications as they combine all data for a single observation day with temporal duplicates eliminated.
To use the interface, first select your data type. Select a tower(s), date range, and variable(s) from the dynamically generated lists. Upon selecting one or more towers in the below menu, the date fields will automatically update to provide only the timeframe where data is available. Multiple towers and variables can be selected by holding down the control (CTRL) key. Please contact us if you have any questions.
