General maritime meteorological observation system
SOAR (Shipboard Oceanographic and Atmospheric Radiation)
"MIRAI meteorological integrated dataset" is a set of "suitably composed data" which consists of 10-minute-average corrected Atmospheric
Pressure, Air Temperature, Relative Humidity, Wind Direction and Speed, Precipitation, Radiation, Sea Surface Temperature, and Wave Height
observed by R/V MIRAI. The correction and processing method was produced by Dr. K. Yoneyama (IORGC/JAMSTEC) in cooperation with
DMO. The actual data processing was conducted by DMO. See here for detailed
correction and processing method.

1) Since the utilization of seawater sampling pump is following time, other time of sea surface temperature data is invalid.
START:2007/09/04 23:57 - STOP:2007/09/29 06:29
2) Following period, relative humidity, air temperature and dew point temperature are data acquired with SOAR Tair/RH sensor, instead of SMet due to its sensor trouble.
START:2007/09/18 09:00 - STOP:2007/09/21 02:00
* Tair/RH sensor replaceed with spare part in 2007/09/21 01:52.
3) In this cruise, the Wind U and V data are substituted SMet Anemometer for SOAR Anemometer due to its hardware trouble.
