  • Description:
    "The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) maintains a network of oceanographic and meteorological stations along the United States coastlines and Great Lakes to monitor water levels, winds (speed, direction and gusts), barometric pressure, and air/water temperature. CO-OPS also displays observations from partnership organizations that meet National Ocean Service (NOS) station installation standards, such as the Texas Coastal Ocean Observing System (TCOON; NOAA, 2008; Appendix 1). Utilizing these observations and tidal predictions, CO-OPS produces a real-time Storm QuickLook synopsis product for tropical cyclones impacting the United States and technical storm reports for select storms. This report documents the elevated water levels, high winds and reduced barometric pressures recorded at stations along the Gulf Coast from southern Florida to Texas during Hurricane Ike. The timing and amplitude of the maximum observed water level elevations, referred to as storm tides, as well as simultaneous information on meteorological parameters, are used to evaluate storm forecasts, characterize the intensity and movement of the hurricane, and to assess post-storm damage"--Overview.
