Summary
Abstract: TOGA COARE Data is historical digital data set DSI-6147, available at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere (TOGA) program is a major component of the World Climate Research Program (WCRP), which is aimed at the prediction of climate phenomena on time scales of months to years. TOGA emphasizes the tropical oceans and their relationship to the global atmosphere. Underlying TOGA is the premise that the dynamic adjustment of the ocean in the tropics is far more rapid than at higher latitudes. Thus disturbances emanating from the western Pacific Ocean (such as El Nino) may propagate across the basin on time scales of weeks, compared to years for corresponding basin-wide propagation at higher latitudes. The significance of shorter dynamic times scales for the ocean near the equator is that they are similar to those of highly energetic atmospheric modes. This similarity allows the formation of coupled modes between the ocean and the atmosphere. The Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Response Experiment (COARE) was done under the TOGA program. The scientific goals of TOGA COARE were to describe and understand: 1. The principal processes responsible for the coupling of the ocean and the atmosphere in the western Pacific warm pool system; 2. The principal atmospheric processes that organize convection in the warm pool region; 3. The oceanic response to combined buoyancy and wind stress forcing in the western Pacific warm pool region; and 4. The multiple scale interactions that extend the oceanic and atmospheric influence of the western Pacific warm pool system to other regions and vice versa. Collectively, the goals of TOGA COARE were to provide an understanding of the role of the warm pool regions of the tropics in the mean and transient state of the tropical ocean-atmosphere system. DSI-6147 is meteorological and related data gathered by instrumented aircraft.

Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
