We will accept surface meteorological data in nearly any format chosen by the provider.
We will accept data via (in decreasing order of desirability) FTP, email, magnetic tapes (Exabyte, DAT, 0.5 inch, QIC), CD, floppy disks, and even in hard copy form.
All data should be accompanied with as much information about the data as is possible. We are interested in the data units, sensor type/model, location of the sensor relative to the ship (especially the height of the instrument above the water), recorded accuracy of the data, and any information on calibration (when were the instruments last calibrated) and station history (instrument replacement, malfunctions, etc).
Any of the following methods may be used to contact the DAC/SAC or to send data/metadata:
