Abstract
    Many of the available digital ship logbook data back to the late 18th century have beenassembled in the International Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set (ICOADS),which has been widely used for global climate studies. We review the makeup of theavailable data and metadata, pending additions, and data homogeneity issues, focusing onthe period before 1950. Prospects for future enhancements in the quality and coverage ofthe data and products, to further benefit scientific research, are discussed.
