UxS Schedule


Shipboard Sensor Database (NODC site) data collected from each NOAA ship with the Scientific Computer System (SCS) is sent periodically to NOAA's U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). These data include measurements of salinity and temperature from thermosalinographs, bottom depth, wind speed and direction, atmospheric temperature, pressure and humidity, position and date/time. The NODC archives, quality-controls, and loads these data into the Shipboard Sensor Database (SSD), which may be queried by date, position, and data type, and from which data may be downloaded.
