- Shipboard Automated Meteorological and Oceanographic System (SAMOS) Air-Sea Fluxes
Bulk turbulent heat and momentum fluxes derived using one-minute
interval data collected by the Shipboard Automated Meteorological
and Oceanographic System (SAMOS) initiative. The fluxes are provided
as three products derived using three widely accepted air-sea flux
algorithms (Smith 1988, COARE 3.5, and a variant of Bourassa 2006).
Each product is grouped by the years the data are collected. The
dataset uses SAMOS data from 19 research vessels with observations
spanning 2005-2014. Data coverage is the global oceans, but is
concentrated around North America. Data include heat and momentum
fluxes along with state variables adjusted to 10 meters.
The dataset was developed under base support for the SAMOS project
which is provided by a grant from the Climate Observing Division of
the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration via the
Northern Gulf of Mexico Cooperative Institute administered by the
Mississippi State University. Additional support for SAMOS is
provided by Oceanographic and Technical Services Program of the
National Science Foundation (grant OCE #1447797), the Office of
Naval Research (via NSF), and the Schmidt Ocean Institute.
