Since January 2000, data from TRITON moorings west of 165E are processed daily by JAMSTEC in a similar fashion. TAO and TRITON data are delivered in a unified database from both TAO and TRITON web pages.
The TAO project has encouraged scientific utilization of the moored measurements by developing sophisticated data management and dissemination sources. These include distribution of TAO data and analyses through the World Wide Web and an Internet anonymous-ftp data base.
ATLAS moorings transmit daily mean values from the previous day and the most recent hourly surface meteorological observations. Since early 2005, ATLAS moorings transmit for 16 hours per day, from 0000-0400, 0600-1000, 1200-1600 and 1800-2200 local time. Before early 2005, the moorings transmitted only 8 hours a day, from 0600-1000 and 1200-1600 local time.
Data are also available from the National Data Buoy Center in Stennis Space Center, Mississippi, the National Oceanographic Data Center in Washington DC, and the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, North Carolina.
