attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String This dataset has 5-day Wind Stress data from the
TAO/TRITON (Pacific Ocean, ),
RAMA (Indian Ocean, ), and
PIRATA (Atlantic Ocean, )
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 .
