Atlas of World Ocean Circulation Experiment Data for Southern Ocean
Entry ID: WOCE_SO

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: This site is an online Atlas of hydrographic data products for the
region extending to the south of 30, nominally the Southern Ocean.
Static atlas products are available for browsing and downloading, but
a suite of fully interactive tools are also provided where users can
construct these products using their own choices of parameters.

Our goal is to complete a hydrographic atlas of the Southern Ocean
using all stations from the World Ocean Circulation Experiment
(WOCE). These and a carefully screened selection of historical
stations compose The Southern Ocean Atlas Database.
