HYDROBASE : a database of hydrographic stations and tools for climatological analysis
This report documents the organization, functionality, and algorithms of a software package which operates as a database manager and toolset for climatological analysis of hydrographic station data. It details the methods of quality control used in constrction of the small, but growing, database and discusses some of the improvements HydroBase methods offer over existing gridded databases, including a short comparison to Levitus's World Ocean Atlas 1994 package. A large porton of this technical reference is devoted to describing the software modules and providing examples for their use.

Climatology of surface meteorology, surface fluxes, cloud fraction, and radiative forcing over the southeast Pacific from buoy observations Ghate, Virendra P.; Albrecht, Bruce A.; Fairall, Christopher W.; Weller, Robert A. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-10-15)A 5-yr climatology of the meteorology, including boundary layer cloudiness, for the southeast Pacific region is presented using observations from a buoy located at 20°S, 85°W. The sea surface temperature and surface air ...
Sharpe, Matthew M.; Graber, Hans C. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1990-02)Wave power spectra from four waverider buoys on the New England Shelf and wind velocity records from three of those buoys and a fixed platform were analyzed. The data span the period from May 1987 through August 1988. ...
A simple mechanism for the climatological midsummer drought along the Pacific coast of Central America Karnauskas, Kristopher B.; Seager, Richard; Giannini, A.; Busalacchi, Antonio J. (Centro de Ciencias de la Atmósfera, UNAM, 2013-04)The global distribution, seasonal evolution, and underlying mechanisms for the climatological midsummer drought (MSD) are investigated using a suite of relatively high spatial and temporal resolution station observations ...
