Comments Data from all instruments were converted to standard format for USGS time series (Montgomery and others, 2009) and stored in network common data format (netCDF) files. NetCDF files store data and associated metadata in a format that is compact and machine-independent. Documentation of the USGS Oceanographic Time-Series Measurement Database can be found in Open-File Report 2007–1194 (http://woodshole.er.usgs.gov/pubs/of2007-1194/).
