The focus of the training activities lies in the production of a handbook (or guide) to best procedures and practices for meteorological measurements at sea. This was first proposed by the WGASF (WGASF 2000) and adopted at the first workshop at FSU in 2003 (Smith et al. 2003). The handbook is aimed at the sea-going research community and ships' technical staff. Version 1 of the handbook is now available.

Future plans include:

An online version of the handbook will allow users to download technical information whether on land or at sea (as broadband ship-to-shore communication technology develops).
