WHOI Upper Ocean Observations for Air-Sea Flux Estimates

| DOI: 10.5065/DM6T-YP63

The Upper Ocean Processes (UOP) Group at WHOI, through research projects, has deployed Air-Sea Interaction Meteorology (ASIMET) systems on moored buoys and volunteer observing ships. The ASIMET system is a suite of meteorological and sea surface sensors that are capable of measuring air temperature, specific humidity, sea surface temperature and conductivity, wind speed and direction, barometric pressure, shortwave radiation, longwave radiation, and precipitation. Many more details about the projects and online data access are provided at the UOP website.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
