Summary
Abstract: The Joint WMO/IOC Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine
Meteorology (JCOMM), formally called the Integrated Global Ocean
Services System (IGOSS) Products Bulletin (IPB) is available on the
World Wide Web from Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. The bulletin
contains near real-time ocean monitoring data. Both global data and
data for the Pacific Ocean are available. The earliest data set
begins in November 1981. Data are added continuously. The following
data are available:

Global Weekly Mean Sea Surface Temperature
Global Monthly Heat Storage
Global Monthly Mean Sea Surface Temperature
Global Monthly Mean Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly
Global Monthly Mean Surface Pseudo-Stress
Global Monthly Mean Surface Winds
Global Monthly Sea Surface Height Anomaly (from TOPEX altimeter)

Global Climatological Monthly Mean Sea Surface Temperature
Global Climatological Monthly Heat Storage
Global Climatological Monthly Mixed Layer Depth
Global Climatological Monthly Temperature

Pacific TOGA-TAO data
Pacific Monthly Mean Surface Currents
Pacific Equatorial Thermocline Depth
Santa Barbara Channel Buoys
Pacific Monthly Sea Level Anomaly

Quarterly comments of the oceanographic features observable in the
data sets are also available.
