NDBC On-line Data Indices

The different types of data that you can find in the NDBC on-line archive are list below. A description of the data types and the units of each measurement is also provided.

Data files for prior months and years have been compressed using the GNU gzip utility. You may uncompress these files with most file compression utilities.

Access to the data from each individual station is available through the NDBC interactive map or (if you know the station ID) through a station ID list or the Station ID Search at the top of the left side navigation bar.
