| DOI: 10.5065/5138-1Q72

Marine surface data (ship observation, moored buoys, etc) are segregated from the GTS data stream at NCDC. The GTS records are encoded into IMMA format and collected into monthly files. The primary use of these data are input and cross-check referencing with other ICOADS data sources.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
