E-SURFMAR Requirements • Implement an optimum overall surface marine network design, and to regularly E-SURFMAR Requirements • Implement an optimum overall surface marine network design, and to regularly revise it according to data user's requirements. – The first design study (2004) led to an operational network of about 100 drifting buoys measuring air pressure and sea surface temperature in the North Atlantic • Financial and technical support for the operation of 4 moored buoys as a baseline for the calibration and the validation of satellite-derived wind and wave observations. • Support for VOS activities in order to better coordinate and harmonise practices. This support includes compensation observations and communications. • Operation of Shipborne Automated Weather Stations (S-AWS) in support of the network design and, in parallel, the automation of the observation aboard ships through the development of such stations.
