attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String The NOAA NDBC SOS server is part of the IOOS DIF SOS Project. The stations in this dataset have currents data.

Because of the nature of SOS requests, requests for data MUST include constraints for the longitude, latitude, time, and/or station_id variables.

WARNING: Always check the quality_flags before using this data. A simple criterion is: only use a row of data if the first quality_flags value for the row (overall bin status) is 3 (good data/passed quality test). You can do this by appending &quality_flags=~"3;.*" to your request.

attribute quality_flags description String These nine, semi-colon-separated quality flags represent the results of the following quality tests based on their position (left to right) in the flags field:
Flag# Meaning
----- ------------------------------------------
1 The overall bin status
2 The ADCP Built-In Test (BIT) status
3 The Error Velocity test status
4 The Percent Good test status
5 The Correlation Magnitude test status
6 The Vertical Velocity test status
7 The North Horizontal Velocity test status
8 The East Horizontal Velocity test status
9 The Echo Intensity test status

Valid flag values are:
0 = quality not evaluated
1 = failed quality test
2 = questionable or suspect data
3 = good data/passed quality test
9 = missing data
attribute quality_flags ioos_category String Quality
attribute quality_flags long_name String Quality Flags
