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.
