Daily observational data collected by two NSF research vessels in the Antarctic Ocean, 1994-present (ongoing).

These datasets are derived from the daily situation reports of two National Science Foundation-operated research vessels, R/V Laurence M. Gould (1994-present) and R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer (2001-present). The yearly directories each contain monthly ASCII text files using *.obs as a file extension.

The reports are organized into labeled rows, including temperature, pressure, wind, and sea temperature measurements, as well as informal sea ice observations.
