Data Services for Carolinas RCOOS Data

Platform Data Query

Carolinas RCOOS

The data query page allows the user to select a platform, then choose the measurement and date/time range from which to retrieve data. The user can view/save the data in a columnar format as well as view a timeseries graph of the data.



The NOAA IOOS program initiated development of a Data Integration Framework (DIF) to improve management and delivery of an initial subset of ocean observations.

Email Alerts

Carolinas RCOOS

In an effort to push data to users, the Alerts Page allows users to choose a platform and then select one or more measurements(currently either Wind Speed and/or Wave Height) and set a notification limit. If the measurement on the platform goes over the user inputted limit, an email is sent to the user alerting them of the condition. The user can choose from any platform in the RCOOS region of interest. Currently this is an experimental page to gauge user interest.

IMARS USF Remote Sensing IMaRS of the College of Marine Science is located in the Knight Oceanographic Research Center (KORC) building at the University of South Florida (USF) in St. Petersburg, Florida. Our research activities focus on the analysis of digital data obtained by satellite and airborne sensors, and on the development of applications of these data at local, regional, and global scales. The main objective is to provide a better understanding of the world oceans on a large spatial and temporal scale. In situ optical and biological data are collected for ground truthing and to relate the apparent and inherent optical properties of water constituents with the remote sensors' signal. We specialize in coastal processes of highly variable regions like the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea and Cuba using instruments such as AVHRR, CZCS, SeaWiFS, MODIS, and Landsat. We use other sensors such as altimeters and scatterometers to examine the physical environment in the adjacent deep ocean.
