SFCOBS-Surface Observations: Ship, fixed/drifting buoy, and CMAN in-situ surface temperaturesEntry ID: FNMOC_SFCOBS
Abstract: Observational data from the FNMOC Ocean QC (Quality Control) process are posted in near real-time to the USGODAE server. These files contain all of the unclassified in-situ data used to initialize the US Navy NOGAPS model, and all of the climate and background (forecast) values used in the QC process.
Surface in-situ temperature observations include data from fixed buoys, drifting buoys, CMAN stations, and ships.
