||Year of observation.
||Month of observation.
||Date of observation. Note that there are gaps in the data
records, so you should convert date and time to a time variable without
gaps. The Matlab function datenum
can help you with this.
||Time of observation.
||Air temperature (Celsius). Missing data are flagged
with 999. In your analysis, you'll probably want to replace
missing values with NaN.
||Sea surface temperature (Celsius). Missing data are
flagged with 999. In your analysis, you'll probably want to
replace missing values with NaN.
||Dewpoint temperature taken at the same height as the air
||Sea level pressure (hPa).
||Wind speed (m/s) averaged over an eight-minute period.
Reported Hourly. Missing data are flagged 99.
||Wind direction (the direction the wind is coming from in
degrees clockwise from true N) during the same period used for WSPD. Missing
data are flagged 999.
||Peak 5 or 8 second gust speed (m/s) measured during the
||Significant wave height (meters) is calculated as the average
of the highest one-third of all of the wave heights during the
20-minute sampling period.
||Average wave period (seconds) of all waves during the
||Dominant wave period (seconds) is the period with the maximum
||Mean wave direction corresponding to energy of the dominant
period (DOMPD). The units are degrees from true North just like wind
||Station visibility (statute miles).
||The water level in feet above or below Mean Lower Low Water
