Title: Antarctic/Southern Hemisphere Ship and Buoy Weather Observations
Description:
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.
