Weather Observation and Reporting - 14220_328
Weather Observation and Reporting, Continued Rules  for Using  CNOC 3140/8 CNOC  3140/8  is  an  official  document  and  is  the  only  record  of  weather encountered  by  the  ship.  All  entries  must  be  neat  and  legible.  Care should  be  taken  to  avoid  writeovers  and  partial  erasures  that  confuse  the legibility  of  the  data  entered.  It  is  recommended  that  a  folder  or  board be  devised  to  protect  the  form  between  observations.  An  original  and one  duplicate  of  this  form  is  required  for  each  day’s  observations.  The duplicate  may  be  a  rewritten  copy,  a  carbon  copy,  or  a  suitable photocopy  of  the  original  form.  The  duplicate  should  be  retained  for  a minimum  of  1  year  as  part  of  the  ship’s  record.  All  entries  should  be made  with  a  black  lead  pencil  (No.  2  or  2H)  or  an  erasable  ball-point pen,  if  available. Corrections  may  be  made  by  erasing  the  erroneous  data  only  if  the  data has  not  been  disseminated  by  any  means  (phone,  radio,  and  message transmittal).  Erase  the  erroneous  data  from  all  copies  of  the  form  and enter  the  correct  data.  When  a  carbon  copy  of  the  form  is  made,  care must  be  taken  to  prevent  carbon  smudges  on  the  duplicate  copy. If  an  error  is  discovered  in  encoded  data  after  it  has  been  transmitted, the  erroneous  data  may  not  be  erased.  Using  a  red  pencil,  correct  the error  by  drawing  a  line  through  the  error  and  entering  the  correct  data above  it.  Retransmit  the  observation  with  the  corrections. You  must  refer  to  the  Manual  for  Ship’s  Surface  Weather  Observations (NAVOCEANCOMINST  3  144.1  Series)  for  step-by-step  instructions  on how  to  complete  each  column.  A  new  form  must  be  started  at  0000 GMT  each  day.  The  2355-59  observation  will  be  the  first  observation of  the  new  day.  If  the  lines  are  filled  in  part  I  before  the  day  is  over, continue  the  observations  on  a  new  form.  Continue  to  make  entries  in column  90  and  part  II  on  the  first  form. In  the  following  tables  you  will  find  an  explanation  for  each  column  of both  parts  I  and  II  of  CNOC  3140/8.  The  example  figure  provided gives  sample  data  from  actual  observations  on  part  I  and  encoding  for part  II.  Use  the  table  and  figure  together  to  learn  about  the  information contained  within  parts  I  and  II. 10-31
