A yellow buoy now sits where the vast open ocean meets freshwater from six different states. Why? To understand acidification in the largest estuary in the United States- the Chesapeake Bay. “This is the first buoy measuring carbon dioxide (CO2) long-term in the Chesapeake Bay” says Dr. Wei-Jun Cai, professor at University of Delaware.
Recently MARACOOS established an ERDDAP server to distribute High Frequency Radar surface current measurements. ERDDAP is a data server that provides a simple, consistent way to download subsets of scientific datasets in common file formats and also can make graphs and maps with the data. Different types of data from a variety of sources is standardized and made more accessible.
