attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String A 3 m. diameter meteorological / oceanographic buoy built by AXYS Environmental Technologies of Sidney, British Columbia. The buoy is positioned at the mouth of Placentia Bay in water depth of about 230 m.The buoy is capable of measuring a variety of atmospheric and surface conditions: wind speed and direction, air temperature, humidity, dew point, barometric pressure, sea surface temperature, current speed, current direction, wave height, wave direction and wave period. The buoy is also equipped with an Aids to Navigation Information System (ATONiS) allowing direct transmittal of the buoy data to a ship's bridge.
attribute NC_GLOBAL summary_fra String Une bouée météorologique/océanographique de 3 m. de diamètre construite par AXYS Environmental Technologies de Sidney, en Colombie-Britannique. La bouée est positionnée à l'embouchure de la baie Placentia à une profondeur d'eau d'environ 230 m. La bouée est capable de mesurer diverses conditions atmosphériques et de surface : vitesse et direction du vent, température de l'air, humidité, point de rosée, pression barométrique, température de la surface de la mer, vitesse du courant, direction du courant, vague la hauteur, la direction des vagues et la période des vagues. La bouée est également munie d'un système d'information sur les aides à la navigation (AtonIS) qui permet la transmission directe des données de la bouée à la passerelle d'un navire.
