Meteorological observations made onboard merchant vessels of the Ship of Opportunity Program (SOOP) and the Voluntary Observing Ship (VOS) are a substantial component of global weather forecast efforts and climate studies. SEAS equipped vessels provide as many as 200,000 observations per year. SEAS records weather information in the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) MET transmission format (BBXX) and transmits it in real-time via the GOES and INMARSAT C satellites. SEAS relies on volunteer observers to report weather at least four times per day at 00Z, 06Z, 12Z, and 18Z.
