SECOORA Observations

The SECOORA Near Real-time Observations Maps are created hourly from SECOORA member data and ancillary regional datasets. Data include In-situ sea surface temperature, water level, and winds; radar-sensed surface currents; drifter trajectories; and satellite-sensed sea surface temperature, winds, and color.

SECOORA Asset Inventory

SECOORA Asset Inventory

The SECOORA Asset Inventory is an overview map application of known observation stations monitoring the coastal ocean of the Southeast US. The map and dataset were created as an improvement to the previous SECOORA Asset Inventory completed in Fall 2005. The data were further supplemented and organized into a single dataset containing 543 stations which can be explored and downloaded as a spreadsheet or shapefile.
