IPAB Buoy Summary

Compiled by Ian Allison and Petra Heil

1995 1996 1997 1998

Description of Fields:

IPAB No: Unique identifier given to each IPAB buoy, with code for participating agency.

First Date, Latitude, Longitude: Date and location of first deployment. Negative latitude values represent the southern hemisphere.

Argos PTT: Argos transmitter number. Numbers may be reused for a different platform.

Deployment: Date and location of deployment.

Buoy Type: Manufacturer and model number

GTS:WMO number for buoys reporting via the Global Technology Service. A value of "n" means no number is available for that buoy.

Drogue: Ocean drogue fitted (y or n)

Deployed: Ice conditions where the ice was deployed.

GPS: GPS positions are used in preference to Argos when available. (Y) - in brackets - indicates GPS receivers were fitted, but data have not been released to IPAB. In this case only Argos positions are archived.

Sensors (standard):

Other:

Note: The following tables indicate what sensors were fitted to the buoys, rather than what data are available through this source. The standard IPAB data are position, P, Ta and SST. Data from other sensors are also processed if the relevant calibrations are provided to IPAB, but are not provided to the archiving data centres. Sensor labels in brackets indicate that the sensor had failed, or that these data were not available to IPAB. Contact buoy owner for further information.
