Research Vessel Surface Meteorology Data Center
The RVSMDC, located at the Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies on the campus of the Florida State University, collects, quality-controls, archives, and distributes surface meteorological observations from research vessels operated by the United States and the international community. Available data include observations made by nearly-continuous automated recording systems and ship bridge crews. We specialize in the quality evaluation of high-temporal resolution observations from shipboard automated meteorological and oceanographic systems (SAMOS).
