TRITON data sampling

TRITON buoy sensors measure every 10 minutes and internally record the data (Table 1). The recorded data are recovered after one-year buoy deployment.

Data averaging

TRITON 10-minute data: see Table1.

TRITON hourly average: as an example, 01:00 hourly data is the averaged value of six 10-minute samples at 00:10, 00:20, 00:30, 00:40, 00:50 and 01:00.

TRITON daily average: the daily data at 12:00 on a Julian day are an averages of 24 hourly averages from UTC 01:00 to 24:00 (00:00).
