Abstract:
The World Ocean Database features observed oceanographic profile data and interpolated standard depth level profile data. Measurements include historical in situ temperature, salinity, oxygen, phosphate, nitrate, nitrite, silicate, pH, alkalinity, chlorophyll, and plankton. World Ocean Database 1998 Version 2 is an updated version of World Ocean Database 1998 (WOD98) released May, 1998. All on-line corrections to the data have been incorporated into this version of WOD98. In addition, the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) Version 1.5 CD-ROM Hydrographic data were added. There are two products from WOD98v2: the CD-ROM data which are geographically-sorted, and the online data which are time-sorted. To facilitate the use of WOD98v2 , the Ocean Data View (ODV4.0) software developed and distributed by Dr. Reiner Schlitzer of the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research, Bremerhaven, Germany is included on CD-ROM (only). This software will decompress files from WOD98 and allow the user to plot scatter or station plots of selected areas or cruises, property-property plots, and many other data viewing utilities like property distributions along sections or on surfaces.
