Definition of Provisional Data

Data obtained from the buoys are telemetered to a receiving station via radio frequency transmissions. These data are received and processed only for wild points outside of a known range for each sensor. The data have not been reviewed or edited, and therefore may be subject to significant change. Changes to the data can occur as a result of:

  • instrument fouling from biological organisms
  • instrument malfunction due to flotsam and jetsam
  • unusually high battery drain
  • failure of solar panels
  • radio frequency noise transmitted with the data signal

NERACOOS cannot be held responsible, nor assumes any liability for any damages caused by inaccuracies in this data or documentation, or as a result of the failure of the data or software to function in a particular manner. NERACOOS makes no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the accuracy, completeness, or utility of this information, nor does the fact of distribution constitute a warranty.
