Abstract : The data contained in these tables were obtained from tape data Family 11 (TDF-11), Marine Surface observations. TDF-11 was primarily funded by the Naval Weather Service Command and selected by NWSED Asheville as the most comprehensive collection of marine surface observations from which to develop a series of coastal marine summaries. The source was punched cards of weather observations taken aboard vessels of varying registry. They were recorded on magnetic tape in a common format. Elements not in WMO code were converted to this code where possible. Where this was not possible, the original data were retained within the tape record as supplemental data. A very limited quality control was attempted as the punched cards were converted to taped records and, where possible, missing psychrometric data were computed. (Author)
