Analysis of weather conditions released

A new report summarizes weather data collected in Port Valdez. Two buoys, one near the Valdez Marine Terminal and another near an environmentally sensitive area called the Valdez Duck Flats have been collecting information since 2019.

Dr. Rob Campbell, researcher at the Prince William Sound Science Center, has been analyzing the data and just published a report on his analysis of the first three years of data. He is looking at ocean currents, wind direction and speed, wave direction and heights, and other information for possible trends between years and seasons.

This report and previous year’s analyses are available on our website: Port Valdez Weather Buoy Analysis 2019 – 2022
