    The Atlantic hurricane season was, at the time, the costliest season ever recorded. The hurricane season officially began on J , and ended on Novem It was slightly above average, with 13 recorded tropical first storm, Alice, had persisted since Decem Alice caused relatively minor impact as it tracked through the Lesser Antilles and eastern. The Atlantic hurricane season had 6 U.S. landfalling hurricanes, which was the highest number in 99 years. The season officially began on June 1 and lasted until November It was an average season, with 11 named storms developing. This was partially attributed to a La Niña – a meteorological phenomenon that produces favorable conditions across the Atlantic basin, such as lower wind.

      Taiwan, Chinese (Wade-Giles romanization) T’ai-wan or (Pinyin) Taiwan, Portuguese Formosa, island in the western Pacific Ocean that lies roughly miles ( km) off the coast of southeastern is approximately miles ( km) long (north-south) and 90 miles ( km) across at its widest point. Taipei, in the north, is the seat of government of the Republic of China (ROC. Sea surface temperatures have a large influence on climate and weather. For example, every 3 to 7 years a wide swath of the Pacific Ocean along the equator warms by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius. This warming is a hallmark of the climate pattern El Niño, which changes rainfall patterns around the globe.

    The Atlantic hurricane season was the first to use the modern-day bounds for an Atlantic hurricane season, which are June 1 to November These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the Atlantic basin. It was a slightly below average season, with 10 tropical cyclones developing and reaching tropical storm intensity. Chile earthquake of , the largest earthquake recorded in the 20th century. Originating off the coast of southern Chile on , the temblor caused substantial damage and loss of life in Chile and—as a result of the tsunamis it generated—in Hawaii, .

The data are automatically recorded on the Savannah River Navigational Light Tower located about 15 km offshore at an ocean depth of 16 meters.

Meteorological data consist of air temperature, wind velocity and barimetric pressure. Oceanographic data include ocean temperature at. Within 10 km of the coast, maximum neap flood and ebb tidal currents are typically m/s and increase to m/s 20 km offshore.

During spring tides, these currents reach nearly m/s 10 km offshore and m/s 20 km offshore. SALINITY Salinity off the Georgia coast just south of. Located near the water’s edge, high frequency radars can measure surface currents over a large region of the coastal ocean, from a few kilometers offshore up to km, and can operate under any weather.

This database holds wind, wave, and other marine data collected by the NOAA National Data Buoy Center (NDBC).The data are collected from NDBC moored buoys and from C-MAN (Coastal-Marine Automated Network) stations located on piers, offshore towers, lighthouses, and beaches.

NOAA is monitoring water levels and winds for Hurricane to view real-time water level and meteorological data. Satellite instruments measure sea surface temperature by checking how much energy is emitted by the ocean at different wavelengths. Scientists also gather sea surface temperatures from ships and buoys, and check maps of sea ice.

To produce the final map, data from all three sources are merged and smoothed with a mathematical filter.

Both are populated by the Office of Coast Survey and National Geodetic Service, and provide coverage of coastal waters and the U.S. exclusive economic zone and its territories.

All Surveys with Digital Data: Bathymetric data collected for NOAA's Office of Coast Survey in a usable digital format as either gridded surface data or xyz point soundings. Ocean maps and data. Ocean observations underpin marine weather forecasting and detection of global climate change.

The Bureau's network of observing systems provide a range of marine and ocean information which allows the public, marine communities and marine-dependent industries to make informed decisions.

Historical ocean weather data statistics freely available MetOcean Solutions’ hindcast data provide high quality marine weather information generated in-house by a team of expert scientists using state-of-the-art atmospheric and oceanographic models.

Largest waves over the last 2 years pummelled Western Australia's coast. May 7,   President Thomas Jefferson founded Coast Survey in and tasked it with creating charts of the nation's coastal waters so America's young shipping industry could thrive.

Reflecting Coast Survey's beginnings, the Historical Map & Chart Collection contains o images — charts, maps, sketches, and more — that are available free to.

Weather is the state of the atmosphere, including temperature, atmospheric pressure, wind, humidity, precipitation, and cloud cover. It differs from climate, which is all weather conditions for a particular location averaged over about 30 years.

Weather is influenced by latitude, altitude, and local and regional geography. Restoration of Frying Pan Tower is managed by FPTower Inc., a nonprofit organization and (c)3 dedicated to restoring, protecting and preserving the former United States Coastguard (USCG) Frying Pan Light Station off the coast of North Carolina for future generations.

history+ offers historical weather simulation data, with a spatial resolution between 4 and 30 km, not measurement data. Starting inthe historical weather data are available in hourly steps or daily aggregations with a spatial resolution of 30 km, whereas higher resolution data are available since for nearly every place on Earth.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the earthquake occurred at a depth of kilometers ( miles) beneath the seafloor.

In deep water it travels as fast as km ( miles) per hour, with enormous wavelengths of about to km (60 to miles) but small.

CO-OPS provides the national infrastructure, science, and technical expertise to monitor, assess, and distribute tide, current, water level, and other coastal oceanographic products and services that support NOAA's mission of environmental stewardship and environmental assessment and prediction.

CO-OPS provides operationally sound observations and monitoring.What can I do with these data? Information on wind speed and patterns is integral to the fields of renewable energy, climate change, and weather preparedness. Users can identify months or trends of unusually high or low wind speeds, or examine the U-wind and V-wind components to look for changes in wind direction.
