The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) has been carrying out oceanographic and marine meteorological observations on board research vessels, at the coastal water temperature observation stations and by ocean data buoys, for the purposes of the better understanding of dynamical processes of the oceanic general circulation affecting climate change, prevention and mitigation of natural disasters, and contributing to international cooperative activities. This Data Report contains the data obtained from the observations made by JMA in 2001 together with the explanations.
