attribute NC_GLOBAL history String This dataset has data from the TAO/TRITON, RAMA, and PIRATA projects.
This dataset is a product of the TAO Project Office at NOAA/PMEL.
2016-09-02 Bob Simons at NOAA/NMFS/SWFSC/ERD (bob.simons@noaa.gov) fully refreshed ERD's copy of this dataset by downloading all of the .cdf files from the PMEL TAO FTP site. Since then, the dataset has been partially refreshed everyday by downloading and merging the latest version of the last 25 days worth of data.

attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String This dataset has 5-day Salinity data from the
TAO/TRITON (Pacific Ocean, http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/tao/),
RAMA (Indian Ocean, http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/tao/rama/), and
PIRATA (Atlantic Ocean, http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/pirata/)
arrays of moored buoys which transmit oceanographic and meteorological data to shore in real-time via the Argos satellite system. These buoys are major components of the CLIVAR climate analysis project and the GOOS, GCOS, and GEOSS observing systems. 5-day data is an average of daily values collected during consecutive five day intervals. A minimum of 2 daily values are required to compute a 5-day average. This dataset contains realtime and delayed mode data (see the 'source' variable). For more information, see
http://www.pmel.noaa.gov/tao/proj_over/proj_over.html .
