attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String OceanSITES Papa daily in-situ data. This file contains hourly real-time and delayed-mode in-situ data from station Papa at 50N,145W in the North Pacific. This taut-line mooring has been instrumented with upper ocean and surface sensors since June 2007. Included in this file are sea temperatures from the surface to 300 meters depth, salinity and density (sigma-theta) from the surface to 200m depth, sea currents at 5m, 34m, and 35m depth, acoustic doppler profiles of zonal and meridional ocean current to from 28 to 160 meters depth, and a variety of surface observations for net air-sea fluxes of heat, moisture, and momentum including winds, solar and longwave radiation, rain, air temperature, relative humidity, and barometric pressure. Variables observed at rates other than 1 hour can be found in separate high resolution files.
