Summary
Abstract: Marine Coastal Weather Log is a historical weather observation forms archived at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The major parameters that make up this marine coastal weather log file are cloud condition (c=clear, p/c=partly cloudy, cy=cloudy), present weather, visibility (miles), wind direction (16 points), and speed (kts), state of sea (height in feet, period in seconds), sea surface temperature (deg. C or deg. f), temperature (deg. C or deg. F), and station pressure (in. Hg). The primary source of these manuscript records is from U.S. Coast Guard land stations, light stations, and ship stations. The number of reporting stations varies from year to year.

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