eLXg {bNX: Sampling Information of the JKEO6


Home/Overview | Technical Info | Data


The JKEO6 sampling is almost same with JKEO5 based on the m-TRITON of which prototype is TRITON moorings in the tropical Pacific.

JKEO6 measures winds, sea surface air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, wave height, pCO2, sea surface temperature and salinity (SST and SSS), short wave and long wave radiation, subsurface temperatures and salinity, and water currents.

All data collected from the JKEO6 mooring except wave height and pCO2 are publicly available. Hourly surface and subsurface data from the JKEO6 mooring are transmitted in near real-time. In addition, spot values of Argos position data are transmitted opportunistically. Daily averaged surface and subsurface data from the JKEO6 mooring and higher resolution data recorded onboard the mooring will be made available in the data page in this web site in delay mode after their recovery.

The table below describes the sampling schemes for the JKEO6 moorings. Observation times in data files are assigned to the center of the averaging interval unless otherwise noted. For example, hourly averages are computed starting at 0000 UTC and are assigned an observation "time stamp" of 0030 UTC.
