Surface Fluxes

Preliminary surface fluxes from real time data

Real-time data from the currently deployed mooring is transmitted back to land through Argos satellite telemetry. These data are subjected to minimal quality control, consisting of removal of outliers; no bias or drift correction is made.
Preliminary surface fluxes are calculated using the COARE bulk flux algorithm.
