The accession numbers shown below refer to the OSU Buoy Group's archive, where each file is identified by a number. Every file has a name that encodes its accession number. Thus the ASCII (stranger format) version of the current meter record whose accession number is 1234 can be found here as acc01234.str.gz, and the netCDF version is stored as acc01234.cdf.
Current speed and direction were recorded by Braincon current meters. Water temperature was recorded by Braincon thermographs.
