The NOAA National Data Buoy Center has deferred annual maintenance for buoys and C-MAN stations until further notice. We hope to resume maintenance of the coastal and offshore weather buoys and C-MAN network next year, pending full funding of the President's FY14 budget.
Station Maintenance Schedule, updated June 17, 2013
NOTE: Outage correction visits may happen earlier, when they can be combined with other regularly scheduled maintenance. Unsuitable weather does cause schedule changes.
Please note that this page concerns major service of stations operated by NDBC. Service of other sensor outages on other NDBC stations may take place on the way to these major service events. Not all stations on the web site are operated by NDBC. If an outage is not listed here, please check the station page. A link for the owner/operator will take you to their web site. Questions about non-NDBC station outages should be addressed to those operators.
More details about NDBC station status can be viewed in the "Remarks" sections of the NDBC Platform Status Report. Information about partner station status can be viewed in the "Summary of Issues/Actions" columns of the Partner Platform Status Reports, which because of size are geographically grouped into multiple reports.
