Count Component Title Abstract
1 NWS-Voluntary Observing Ships (VOS) The VOS Program obtains weather observations from vessels and ships traveling all over the world in the normal course of their business. The program relies on volunteer observers and operates at no monetary cost to the vessel. As an international program under World Meteorological Organization (WMO) auspices, the VOS Program lists 49 countries as participants. The U.S. program is the largest in the world, with approximately 900 vessels actively participating each quarter.

                1 Airtemp_C Real Air temperature (Celsius). For sensor heights on buoys, see Hull Descriptions. For sensor heights at C-MAN stations, see C-MAN Sensor Locations
                1 Dewpoint_C Real Dewpoint temperature taken at the same height as the air temperature measurement.
                1 Gustspeed_m/s Real Peak 5 or 8 second gust speed (m/s) measured during the eight-minute or two-minute period. The 5 or 8 second period can be determined by payload, See the Sensor Reporting, Sampling and Accuracy section.
                1 Hour_GMT Real In UTC for data files/display. Station pages show current observations in station local time by default, but can be changed by the viewer to UTC.
                1 Latitude Real Latitude is measured from the equator, with positive values going north and negative values going south.
                1 Longitude Real Longitude is measured from the Prime Meridian (which is the longitude that runs through Greenwich, England), with positive values going east and negative values going west.
                1 Pressure_hPa Real Sea level pressure (hPa). For C-MAN sites and Great Lakes buoys, the recorded pressure is reduced to sea level using the method described in NWS Technical Procedures Bulletin 291 (11/14/80).
                1 Pressure_Tendency Real Pressure Tendency is the direction (plus or minus) and the amount of pressure change (hPa)for a three hour period ending at the time of observation.
                1 SST_C Real Current temperature in celsius at 0 meters.
                1 Visibility_miles Real Station visibility (statute miles). Note that buoy stations are limited to reports from 0 to 1.9 miles.
                1 Wave_height_(m) Real Significant wave height (meters) is calculated as the average of the highest one-third of all of the wave heights during the 20-minute sampling period. See the Wave Measurements section.
                1 Wave_Period_(sec) Real Dominant wave period (seconds) is the period with the maximum wave energy. See the Wave Measurements section.
                1 Wind_Direction Real Wind direction (the direction the wind is coming from in degrees clockwise from true N) during the same period used for WSPD.
                1 Wind_Speed_(m/s) Real Wind speed (m/s) averaged over an eight-minute period for buoys and a two-minute period for land stations. Reported Hourly.
