Entry ID: NODC_WOD01_Database

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: World Ocean Database 2001 (WOD01) is comprised of 8 CD-ROMs and
contains in situ profile data such as temperature, salinity,
nutrients, oxygen, chlorophyll, plankton biomass data and more. It is
an update to the World Ocean Database 1998, plus it contains some new
parameters.

Some changes since WOD98:

addition and specification of data from undulating oceanographic
recorders, profiling floats, drifting buoys, moored buoys, surface
only data, and autonomous pinniped bathythermograph data.

addition of carbon variables to the database.

submittal defined data quality flags received as part of data
submissions are now kept in the database. modifications to the format.


To help visualize the data files, the CD-ROMs come with Ocean Data
View ? software developed by R. Schlitzer, Alfred Wegener Institute
for Polar and Marine Research, Bremerhaven, Germany. An online version
of WOD01 is also available for downloading individual data files, and
the WOD01 webpage provides extensive documentation.
