Merchant, cruise, and research vessels make unique contributions to marine data collection using automated oceanic and atmospheric monitoring systems. The programs making these observations are reviewed along with the wide range of applications to atmospheric and oceanic research and operations. A vision for the next decade outlines where incremental improvements to instruments, platforms, and data stewardship can benefit the community. A series of recommendations are made to meet the challenges of future-ocean observing.
