Description 
Summary

The data set contains marine meteorological observations measured by automatic weather (ODAS) stations. The data have been collected for climatological studies. Main data have been corrected with limit checks and removals of unidentified measurements or replacements of key values. Data set is a time series measured with 3 hours spans. Current data from different stations consist of different either short or long time periods. Two different types of instrumentation systems used at the stations have produced different number of measurement observations. Years covered: Bogskar (1982-1997), Fagerholm (1989-1997), Haapasaari (1985-1997), Harmaja (1989-1997), Kalbadagrund (1977-1997), Kristiinankaupunki (1986,1990,1992-1997), Kemi (1978-1997), Market (1978-1997), Rauma (1982-1988), Ulkokalla (1978,1980-1983,1985,1986,1992-1997), Kaskinen (1990-1992), Nyhamn (1993-1997) and Rajakari (1993-1997). The data have been stored as a Paradox database. Original telegrams of this weather information have been sent by Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI).
