Summary
Abstract: The Global Telecommunications System (GTS) is a major component of transmitting global meteorological data, consisting of both in situ and satellite observations. This data is collected by a number of organizations, which archive and further process the data. The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) collect this GTS data and formats it into BUFR (Binary Universal Form for the ... View entire text

Purpose: The NCEP GTS marine Observations (BUFR format) was used to develop the ICOADS-NRT product (see http://icoads.noaa.gov) created and maintained by NCDC--this source of GTS data from NCEP fills in gaps in the data received by NCDC's GTS stream and also enables Quality Control Checks for the ICOADS-NRT product. The NCEP GTS data is a significant input source for the new ICOADS NRT product and archiving these files is very important in the case a monthly NRT file needs to be reproduced.
