Have you wondered if it is warmer now? Or is the water warmer then it was before? That can be a complicated question, however you can use data to help you answer it. Check out the NERACOOS Ocean and Weather Climate Display tool. This tool pulls together data from 9 different buoys located in the water off the coast of Maine. The tool creates an interactive chart that allows you to look at different buoys, data types, and time periods. In addition to charting the data you selected this tool also shows you the range, the lowest data point on record and the highest, as well as the long term average. You can even view the data that is being used to create the charts.
