Click the "DATA" button in the table below to pop open the data in a new window with the following header:
BuoyID, Year, Hour, Min, DOY, POS_DOY,Lat,Lon, (BP),(Ts),(Ta)

DOY = the day of the year to the decimal minute (1.0 to 365.999) of the reported data
POS_DOY = the day of the year to the decimal minute of the reported position
BP = Barometric Pressure, if available
Ts = Surface Temperature if available
Ta = Air Temperature if available
