Data plots, CWF Africa to the Americas 2013


Below are time-series plots of some of the data coming from the James Robert Hanssen in the North Atlantic Ocean. The plots are updated approximately every hour. The horizontal axis is time, with markers at midnight starting each day/date and the vertical axes are in units for that parameter.

These plots are NOT properly decimated in time. During the period of approximately Feb 10 to 25, the data from the boat was not arriving ashore. Additionally, the clock which is tracking time for these data was reset when power came after some long periods of being off. Therefore, it appears that there are two sets of data in a single time element. We will reconstruct the data files for these plots soon with a more accurate time basis. Also, this data may be available for viewing with Tableau Public v8, in the near future.

Next to the title of each plot are buttons that allow you to download that plot in either .png or .svg formats. If you use these graphics anywhere, please attribute them to “OAR Northwest, CWF Africa to the Americas 2013.” If you have questions, please put them in the comment box below and we’ll try to answer them.

  1. These are Fantastic. Thanks for providing this look at an ocean environment we otherwise wouldn’t be able to see and share in our classes. Cheers.

  2. This is so wonderful. My 12 year old daughter was so excited to see this on the news and then to actaully see the site. We got out the tape measure and measured out roughly the space you are living in and watching the temperatures compared to our temperate here in Victoria, b.c.. Keep your spirits up and way to go! I plan on sharing this website with her middle school class in Sidney. thank you again for this amazing experience for us, arm chair travelllers. cheers from sidney b. c. 🙂

  3. Hi I was for most of my life around the salt water in Nova Scotia near Peggy’s Cove. I love the courage you have and have many questions but hope some will be answered as we follow along. one is water that comes into rowing area, is it self bailing or pumped.more to follow. Gordon Mason

  4. @gordon – Self bailing through the scuppers (holes) you see covered by black flaps on the outside of the cockpit. They are supremely efficient, able to empty a whole cockpit-full of H2O within 20-30 seconds if I remember right (we try not to test that one very often!) -Mission Control
