Voluntary Observing Ship (VOS) Reports

EarthNC Inc

Check out current sea conditions reported by ships navigating the oceans.

At any one time there are thousands of ships navigating the blue planet. A project by NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration), called the Voluntary Observation Ship (VOS) encourages commercial vessels to give weather reports as they cross the globe. Here you can view a dynamic KML showing weather reports in the placemark description balloons for the past 24 hours. Use the time slider at the top to scroll through to find those of interest.
