Obtain coastline data from NOAA NGDC


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) has produced the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) website to allow for US data access. It is possible to download coastline data from an interactive global map.

NOAA's National Ocean Service (NOS) [1] is home to the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS). This center gathers oceanographic data along the coast of the United States. Data available from this site includes historical and real-time observations and predictions of water levels and currents.

The Wave Information Studies (WIS) is part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory. Bulk wave parameters (significant wave height, period, direction) and wind speed and direction can be downloaded and viewed on the WIS site.

NOAA's National Data Buoy Center

http://wikis.aquaveo.com/xms/FTPImages/GSDA/GSDA_NOAA.png

NOAA's National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) supplies data for moored buoys. The buoys measure a variety of data including: barometric pressure; wind direction, speed, and gust; air and sea temperature; wave energy spectra; and direction of wave propagation. Significant wave height, dominant wave period, and average wave period are derived from the wave energy spectra. The data available depends on the buoy type and data provider.
