Buoys and Coastal Stations

In-situ technology – buoys, metrological and coastal stations – are the real time eyes on the water. Mariners need to know the true local conditions before heading out. Data from these stations are used to:

  • Improve marine weather forecasts and models
  • Increase accuracy for storm track and storm surge inundation
  • Support scientific research
  • Issue marine warnings

To explore SECOORA supported coastal stations and moorings, see the map below.
