Summary
Abstract: Surface Marine Observations (DSI-1100) is a historical digital data set in archive at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The data are from all over the world, from 1855 through 1982. The data set was derived from a variety of punched card decks in different formats, including some from foreign meteorological services. Observations were obtained from ship logs, ship weather reporting forms, published ship observations, automatic observing buoys, and teletype reports. Major parameters are wind, visibility, weather, temperature (air and sea), sky condition, sea and swell wave data, and pressure data.

Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
