Abstract:

A computer program was written for comparison of reported winds from ships with geostrophic winds obtained from the Fleet Numerical Weather Facility surface pressure analysis. In the comparisons described here, ship reports from 14 synoptic times between 18 January 1967 and 9 February 1967 were used. Thus the results obtained would be representative for the winter season.
