The Shipboard Automated Meteorological and Oceanographic System (SAMOS) initiative focuses on improving the quality of, and access to, surface marine meteorological and oceanographic data collected in-situ by automated instrumentation on research vessels (RVs). The data management system, from collection to archive, is described along with the benefits of the initiative, providing a model for future underway data collection. Recommendations are made for expanding the current initiative to the wider international community.
