Antarctic/Southern Hemisphere Ship and Buoy Weather Observations
Entry ID: SSEC-AMRC-SHIP_BUOY

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: We have observations from three ships near Antarctica, the R/V Polar Duke the R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer and the R/V Laurence M. Gould. Data from 23 August 1993 are available via ftp and the files are updated with the most recent observations every month as we receive the information.

The AMRC has been archiving general ship and buoy observational data for the Antarctic and surrounding areas.

observations every 7-10 days as we receive the information.
The AMRC has been archiving general ship and buoy
observational data for the Antarctic and surrounding
regions since 2 December 1998.

Use Constraints
None - the only request is that the Antarctic Meteorological Research Center (AMRC), Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison be given credit as the source of the data with the following:

"The authors appreciate the support of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Antarctic Meteorological Research Center for the data set, data display, & information, NSF grant number ANT-1141908."

Or if space doesn't allow:

"AMRC, SSEC, UW-Madison"
