Data Base Description
The creation and maintenance of the South Florida Coastal Oceanographic Database (SFCOD) is undertaken as part of the collaborative South Florida Program between NOAA/AOML CIMAS and UM/RSMAS. The purpose is to organize historical and ongoing data being collected from the South Florida coastal region into a user friendly web accessed data base to enhance and encourage research efforts to better describe, understand and model the oceanographic processes, their interactions and influence on water quality and living marine resources. The Data Base is organized by projects, which are searchable by data types: moored time series, shipboard, drifters, satellite imagery and linked to relevant atmospheric and other coastal data sets such as coastal sea level and river discharge. To date SFCOD covers the 17 year period from April 1989 to April 2006, but is an ongoing process an updated following each new mooring deployment period.
