Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System

(Abbreviated PORTS.) A system of current, water level, and meteorological stations telemetering their data to a central location for real-time dissemination, processing, and archival.

Available to pilots, mariners, the U.S. Coast Guard, and all marine interests in voice, graphical, and digital form and via the World Wide Web. The PORTS concept was first introduced in the United States by NOAA's National Ocean Service in Tampa Bay, Florida, and subsequent systems have been installed in the Port of New York and New Jersey, in Galveston Bay, and in San Francisco Bay.
