  • Description:
    "The NOAA Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) maintains a network of oceanographic and meteorological stations along the United States coastline to monitor water levels, winds (speed, direction and gusts), barometric pressure, and air/water temperature. Utilizing these observations and tidal predictions, CO-OPS produces technical storm reports and a real-time Storm QuickLook synopsis product for tropical cyclones impacting the United States. During Hurricane Gustav, stations from the Florida Keys and along the Gulf Coast to Texas recorded elevated water levels, high winds, and generally decreasing, although variable, barometric pressure. Station location information is contained in Figure 1, and Appendix 1. Observed water level elevations are referenced to the standard chart datum Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW), based on the National Tidal Datum Epoch 1983-2001 (see Appendix 2). This report summarizes the highest observed water levels, referred to as the Storm Tide, which is the maximum water level elevation measured by a water level station during storm events"--Overview.
