NOAA Ship Oscar Dyson Underway Meteorological Data, Near Real Time

NOAA Ship Oscar Dyson Underway Meteorological Data (Near Real Time, updated daily) are from the Shipboard Automated Meteorological and Oceanographic System (SAMOS) program.

IMPORTANT: ALWAYS USE THE QUALITY FLAG DATA! Each data variable's metadata includes a qcindex attribute which indicates a character number in the flag data. ALWAYS check the flag data for each row of data to see which data is good (flag='Z') and which data isn't. For example, to extract just data where time (qcindex=1), latitude (qcindex=2), longitude (qcindex=3), and airTemperature (qcindex=12) are 'good' data, include this constraint in your ERDDAP query: flag=~"ZZZ........Z." in your query. '=~' indicates this is a regular expression constraint. The 'Z's are literal characters. In this dataset, 'Z' indicates 'good' data. The '.'s say to match any character. The '' says to match the previous character 0 or more times. (Don't include backslashes in your query.) See the tutorial for regular expressions at
