Format Description and General Information
All available buoy data from this station can be downloaded from the above table.
-if you right-click when the cursor is on the hyper-linked Z or U, this brings up a menu
-click on "Save Link As..." (this is like a Save File As, or Save Target As..)
-save the file in a directory on your hard drive, and remember to use the .Z extension to name the file if you downloaded the compressed version.
-if you left-click on the U (uncompressed version), some browsers may not uncompress the file "on-the-fly" and display it to your screen. In this case, download the file to your hard drive (as a .txt file) and use a text editor to view it.
Or these files can be downloaded by using ftp directly:
- just ftp to ftp.nodc.noaa.gov
- enter anonymous for the userid
- enter your e-mail address for the password
- cd to pub/f291
(there is a directory for each Year/Month that has data available - YYYYMM)
- cd to the desired Year/Month directory (e.g. 199507)
- get the file of your choice, or mget multiple files in the directory
- enter bye to log off.
If you do not have decompression software, gzip is free.
It is available from http://www.gzip.org/*.
It can uncompress .gz or .Z files and is available for most operating
systems (Microsoft, Mac, Unix, etc).
All Buoy data is available online, however to order Buoy (F291) Data on CD-ROM (through December 1997) use the NOAA National Data Centers' Online Store . Or, contact User Services to order recent data on CD-ROM or other media.
