Current live data
The graphs below are generated in near real-time from data transmitted via satellite. These data have had some simple quality control measures applied in an attempt to remove spikes and invalid data. In some cases additional calibrations have been applied to the biogeochemical sensor data.
Other data are being recorded internally in some sensors on the mooring but are not transmitted in near-real time. After recovery, these data are archived at the British Oceanographic Data Centre and can be accessed at the BODC PAP Collection. We are also starting to make these data available through the BODC ERDDAP service. To see the full time series, makes sure to set the ‘start time’ to the earliest possible date (by default only the latest data are shown).
