Data Buoy.
It is now possible to view real-time data on water and air temperature, wind direction, wave height and other environmental conditions at the Monitor National Marine Sanctuary from a NOAA data buoy installed at the site in 2006. The data collected aides seafarers in determining sea conditions off the coast of Cape Hatteras and assists staff in monitoring conditions at the sanctuary. Data from the buoy can be accessed online 24 hours a day at or by calling (888) 701-8992 (station #41025).

Visit the Monitor publications page for outreach information on the data buoy.
