The first volunteer observation ship (VOS) was M/S Skaugran of Seaboard International Shipping 
Co., Canada, and observations were carried out from March 1995 to September 1999. The ship usually sailed 
from Vancouver, BC, to Japanese ports and then back to U.S. West Coast ports or to Vancouver, BC, every 6 
to 7 weeks, and so data from 8 to 9 round-trips per year were obtained. M/S Skaugran provided good coverage 
north of 34oN in the North Pacific, and the monthly distribution of the ocean surface pCO2 for the 
4-year period was acquired.
