Upper Ocean Nutrient Climatologies, by Louanchi and Najjar
Entry ID: NCAR_DS254.0

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The phosphate, nitrate and silicate data used to produce the monthly climatologies were taken from the World Ocean Atlas 1998 produced by the Ocean Climate Laboratory at the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The monthly grids are analyzed onto the top 14 NODC standard levels 0, 10, 20, 30, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 200, 250, 300, 400 and 500 m. The horizontal resolution is 2 degrees x 2 degrees.
