Below you will find plotted archived real-time data collected via buoys in Western Lake Erie during algal bloom season, typically running from June through October.
With thanks to the NOAA High Performance Computing and Communications Program, for the 2016 and 2017 season, we will be using a PostgreSQL database management system (DBMS) to serve and display smaller chunks of the real-time data. With a DBMS such as PostgreSQL, it is much easier to store, manipulate, document, and use data in comparison with flat text files.
