Meteorological Ocean Buoys (MOBs) data

The buoy was left in the open ocean, ice edges, near the mouth of the MacKenzie River delta for a minimum of 2 hours (maximum of 13 hours) to record wave spectrum parameters. The buoy also records its geographic location with a GPS receiver. The buoy has a Vaisala sonic anemometer on top of it which measures wind speed and direction. The wave data files are in a proprietary format that can be opened using the Waverider program supplied by Datawell Inc. Wind data is in DAT format. No air or sea surface temperatures are available due to incomplete programming on the buoy.
